A definite downside to dog ownership is having to deal with the less than fragrant fruits shared from their wiggly behinds. However, with the Dogs Trust reporting that the UK’s 9 million dogs produce over 1,000 tonnes of waste each day, we’ve all got to do our bit to stop our dogs kicking up a stink in our parks, paths, beaches and beyond. To help you continue on your righteous path as a Scooper-Hero, we share seven poo bag related buys to help you bag it and bin it more easily.
From personal (and messy) experience with inferior alternatives, Beco Pets Poop Bag range is definitely the daddy. They’re sizeable, strong and best of all eco-friendly with their biodegradable composition, making them our number one Scooper-Hero buy. Starting at £2.99 for a pack of 60, shop the range at Becopet.com
Avoid first world problems of poo bags spilling out of the top of your pocket or getting short when you were convinced you had an emergency bag stored in the depths of your handbag, with our pick of poo bag holders to keep your unsightly necessities neatly stored on the go.
