The Story of Idaho Poop Scoop

Idaho Poop Scoop was founded in July of 2021 by Josh and Sarah Silver (and our dog Shadow). Being both born in Idaho, we have a love for the Treasure Valley and a desire to own a small business that serves the area. With all of the growth in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Caldwell, we think that a dog poop pickup service will be extremely helpful to any household that struggles to find the time (or willpower) to pick up their dog’s poop. Cleaning up poop is on of the only downsides to owning a dog, and that’s why we decided to found Idaho Poop Scoop and remove that downside. Now you can come home to a nice clean back yard.

Principles of Dog Poop Pickup

Our Principles

Sarah and I are both followers of Jesus Christ. Because of that conviction, we have founded our company on three fundamental principles: Integrity, Helping Others, and Working Hard. We understand that picking up dog poop is, admittedly, not the most glorious job. But we believe that by working hard to help people in the Treasure Valley in an honest and principled way, that we can have a lasting positive impact.

It was a joy to found Idaho Poop Scoop in 2021. For quite a while now I have been wanting to start a small business, and a dog poop pickup service is right up my alley. The combination of being ridiculously introverted and nasally hampered made dog poop pickup a great fit for me. I love reading and learning. Listening to books or podcasts through earbuds is one of my joys during the day. An even greater joy is getting to be married to my wonderful and beautiful wife Sarah! She is my partner in this business adventure, and you can learn about her below.

Sarah Silver

Since the first day I can remember, I have had a significant love for animals. I always thought I’d be a veterinarian when I was older, but then realized there would be sad moments within the job as well, making it not the right fit for me. I have a passion also for taking care of and helping others. This drove me to seek and study my career in physical therapy, where I can help people daily. As I was in the Physical Therapist Assistant program my husband Josh was my biggest supporter in many ways, emotionally and financially. After graduating in May of 2021 and landing my job as a Physical Therapist Assistant here in the Treasure Valley, I had a strong desire to support Josh in the same ways he did for me. When he brought up the idea of starting a dog poop scooping business here in the Treasure Valley, we both saw it to be the perfect fit for our little family, Josh, I, and our dog Shadow. I am excited for us partnering together to work hard and bring you the ease of mind about the responsibilities that come with being a dog lover, like that dog poop in the backyard. Rather than worrying about the dog poop, spend some more time with your pup!

Shadow Idaho Poop Scoop


Shadow is our beloved puppy who most people would consider fully grown. He has four loves in life. First, he loves snuggling with Sarah in the morning while she drinks her coffee. Second, taking walks and swimming in the canal is about as good as it gets. Third, wrestling with Josh is the highlight of any afternoon. And last, getting to eat his food with warm tuna juice is the pinnacle of culinary perfection in his opinion!
