LOL not the whole thing, just the tip of it.... if you're using a qtip, just one furry end of it should be fine.... just enough that it will stay there without you holding it. Then grab your poop bag, cuz within a minute or 2, you'll have a pile (with a lovely qtip decoration). I don't recommend doing this on a routine basis of course - but for those times that you need your dog to go NOW, and he's sniffing around (in the 10 degree weather, while you're turning blue), it can be a big help.
Oh and once you do it a few times, all you have to do is pull one out and show them, and they'll usually go for you . Mine will do this at shows, they'll be sniffing all the cool dog smells, and I'm looking at my watch saying we have to be in the ring in 5 minutes...... so I'll say "I'm getting a match" - and they'll all of a sudden decide it was time to poop!
Oh and other than at shows, you might want to look around before doing this, otherwise your neighbors are going to get some WEIRD ideas about you!!!
