Picking up poop is one of the least glamorous aspects of having a dog. Locating a poop bag, freeing it from the roll, then picking up the mess without accidentally getting it on your hands is just half the battle. Then, just when you thought the worst part was over, you’re stuck figuring out how, and where, to deposit your special load.
The struggle is real, but maybe it doesn’t have to be so gross. Many products exist to help improve your poop scooping from start to finish. From easy-retrieval waste bag dispensers and pouches, to loops and canisters for stashing full bags when there’s no garbage can in sight, some dog poop bag holders and products are better than others in making the task more pleasant, not to mention, convenient.
Here are 14 of our favorite solutions to clean up and store poo on the go.
