One more thing, James...in the past, raising various animals....horses, 
calves, chickens, mice, hamsters, etc, the general rule is that if the pen 
or cage or stall smells, you aren't using enough bedding.  Keep in mind that 
the manure is the "hot" or "green" stuff in the compost and the bedding is 
the "brown" stuff.  The correct proportions are approximately 20% hot to 80% 
cold, or brown.  Add moisture and it composts.  At the beginning there might 
be a smell, but it's not that nasty doggie poo smell.
