Curtis Murphy of Klean Scoop

Mon, Jan 20, 2014 (11:49 a.m.)

Curtis Murphy, 55, is one of more than a dozen entrepreneurs in the Las Vegas Valley who get paid to pick up after other people’s dogs. They go by such names as Pet Butler, Poo-Snatchers and Happy Pets. Murphy launched his business, KleanScoop, 11 years ago. The work may seem demeaning, but consider this: Murphy figures on making $85,000 this year. Not bad for a high school dropout.
