Scoop Masters at a pooper scooper trade show

My name is Timothy Stone. In 1988 I used $65.00 and an old pick up truck to start and build a successful pooper scooper business in the Los Angeles area. Since then, it had grown to over 800 regular clients and several dozen not so regular clients, generating tens of thousands of dollars of income each and every month. In 2001, with the desire to expand the pooper scooper industry, I decided to write a how to manual so that anyone with a few bucks and the desire to get out of the rat race could do so without paying a fortune in franchise fees. C’mon, it’s picking up dog poop! It’s not rocket science! Why spend $20, $30, $40 thousand dollars or more to buy a pooper scooper franchise – WITH NO CUSTOMERS – when you can easily do it yourself and use that money to grow your business yourself. Not only that, but you won’t have to pay monthly royalties to a franchisor. Learn directly from someone who knows!
With over 25 years of experience in the professional pet waste industry, my ebook will show you how to start and maintain your own low cost, high profit, home based pooper scooper service.
What you get:

  • Over 100 pages of solid information, no fluff!
  • Action plans to help you move in the right direction;

Dear Tim,

“Thank you so much for your book, The Professional Scoop Master. I finished it in two days and I feel as if I’ve been in the pet waste business for a year already! You have been very helpful in answering my questions and getting me started in my new pooper scooper business. Thanks again for all the telephone help. (I hope I’m not disturbing you too much with the phone calls.)”

What makes you so special?

  • Nothing makes me special, other than the fact that I have done it!
  • I’ve been in the pet waste business since 1988 – longer than any individual person, long before personal computers and the internet were mainstream.
  • My business has been through 3 recessions (and an earthquake) and yet, it continues to flourish.
  • I am a co-founder of, the only national trade organization for pooper scoopers.
  • For over a decade, I’ve talked to new and professional pooper scoopers from all around the country answering questions and giving advice on starting and running their business. I even help people in my own service area. That’s OK with me, there’s plenty of dogs to go around!
  • I’m not even that bright, but I know what I’m talking about!

Why can’t I just buy a pooper scooper franchise?

More, unedited testimony-

“Your ebook/manual is wonderful. I’ve read it twice so far. It was a fun read both times. It gives me so many possibilities for what I can do whenever I decide I’m ready. It also tells me what NOT to do. I might have done a few of those things, but now I know not to. The detail you go into is very helpful. I was pretty nervous about spending that much for something w/o having it in my hand before I bought it, but it was well worth the $$!”
