The number of off-leash dog parks across the US has increased dramatically in the past few years. Managing dog waste has been a particular problem. I have two questions:

1) Does anyone here have info on the Australian concept of "pooch patches" -- an area designed to get dogs to eliminate in a special area, the urine will dissipate and fecal matter can picked up and disposed of properly?

2) Composting systems -- or digesters --that can be located on site to process fecal matter?

Thanks.
