RALEIGH, NC — Doggie DNA is becoming very popular at an apartment complex in North Carolina.

Managers at a building complex in Raleigh are trying to figure out which residents are not cleaning up after their dogs.

They say they clean up two five-gallon bucket fulls of waste every week. And they want to stop that. So, they’re hoping science will help solve the problem.

A start-up company called — PawzLife — will swab every dog’s mouth and record the results. When they find waste, they’ll test it to identify the canine and its owner.

Once the owner or owners are identified, managers hope the poop problem will be resolved.
