I take my mini dachshund out on a leash too, but our yard gets really dark in the middle of the night. Something like this sounds so helpful. What a great idea!!

Poop markers make sense to me, too.  When I had my two big dogs I would walk them to one area of the yard and they'd go potty and poop after running several circles around me (a lot like the flying model planes on wires), and then one of the dogs would do the "poop circle."  This was when she would walk a circle whilst pooping and I would have a poop ring around me.  Considering this area of the yard was just for the dogs, I didn't pick up the poo.  It would get mowed, the poo would freeze in the winter and make tasty treats for the dogs (eww! they liked poopcicles), but once in a great while...one of the dogs would go poo in an area of the yard that was for the humans.  D'oh! Poop markers would have come in handy.
But I would never in my life pick up poop at 2am in the morning.  Yuckers.  That's when you just want to get back into a warm bed and forget you had to watch an animal take a giant crap. 
Anyway, good idea nonetheless!

If I my humbly make a recommendation, you can train your dog to poop where you want her too. Seems kinda redundant to do poop markers because if you have the energy to do that you can easily scoop.

When you know your dog has to go, take her on leash to the part of the yard where it will be Poop Alley ( as we call ours) and tell your dog " Go Pee Pee" ( or whatever vernacular you use, but always use the same command every time. Consistancy is the key to dog training.)

People are always amazed that I can say to my lab, " Go Poop." and within 30 seconds (28 of it sniffing for the perfect spot) she goes poop. It is not rocket science. It's poo.

She is 10 years old now and we've never stepped in poo and we've never had to pick it up because of the area she goes in is not seen (or smelled) by the common eye.  ( And the lawn mower runs it over weekly turning it into a lovely mulch or bomb.)

Exactly! While the idea of poo markers is cute and original, I do think its MUCH easier to train the dog to go where you want it to go, and when you want it to go. That eliminates you stepping in it, and it also eliminates 2 AM poopings. UGH. (we use "do your business" and she poos within a few seconds also)

My puppy is on a 100% natural diet and as a result has the nastiest smelling butt you can imagine. One of her farts in a small room is lethal. Her poop can probably be smelled across the block. There is no way I am going to pick up her fresh poop at 2 a.m. or whenever! I think poop markers are the best thing ever. (I just had to learn not to have white ones because they got lost in the snow.)

Hehe. If my grandma lets the dogs out and they poop, she says "I put a leaf by it so you can find it and pick it up." Which makes no sense whatsoever because the entire yard is covered with leaves.... I should make her some "poop markers"!

"Dear Diary...today I was pompous and my sister was crazy.Today, we were kidnapped by hill folk never to be seen again. It was the best day ever."

who wants to pick up and dispose of soggy poop at 2am?!

Exactly!  Smiley

Hehe, "doggie mines" has to be the best phrase I've heard in a long time.

I forget, having cats, that you take dogs outside for the bathroom (plus I just posted in a cat thread) so I was REALLY wondering why you were letting doggie poo sit all over the HOUSE with a marker!   Now that's when you'd just pick it up instead of using a marker.   lol.
