Our Experience

For almost 30 years the name Pet Yard Pickup has been a strong local buisness servicing the greater Twin Cities area. Pet Yard Pickup's success all started with Gail Behrens-McArdle. With the help of her beloved Cedar, a Golden Retreiver, she definitely had a dog's life (and the cleanest yard in town)!

The new owner Becki Smith has worked for Pet Yard Pickup for 15 years. If you are already a long time customer you've likely chatted many times with her in your yard. Becki knows her yards just as well as the dogs that use them. We are truly home grown right here in the Twin Cities.

We get the job done

Since the beginning we've worked with people who don't want their yards to go to the dogs, but who don't have the time, energy, or desire to continually clean up after their beloved pets. If you're tired of having to tip-toe around your backyard or, worse yet, not being able to use your lawn for family enjoyment, give your lawn and your back a break by giving us a call. We'll see to it that your yard remains free of dog waste. Our tight-knit team of professionals are here to help you with all of your dog waste removal needs.

Services we offer

Just as everyone's pet is special, so are their specific needs. You may want us to come more often, less frequently, only when you're sick or simply once a year at springs first thaw when the warm sun unleashes an entire winters worth of dog waste.

Year Round

This service is our typical option. Once you depend on us to clean your yard,you won't want to stop! We will be there to clean your yard rain or shine. Just let us know the weeks your dogs go on vacation and leave the rest to us!

Spring Cleaning

Just like it sounds. We'll come out at the first sign of spring and clean all of the winter pet waste away.

Weekly Seasonal

This service is designed for dog owners who only want our service during certain times of the year, such as winter or summer. We'll start and stop the service at your convenience. Just let us know when!


This service is for those dog owners who can find someone they know to house-sit their dog but don't want to saddle their family member or friend with that odorous task of cleaning the yard. We will take care of that job and you won't come home to face a yard full of doo-doo.
