2015 High Quality Pet Dog Cat Pooper Poop Clip Scooper Clear Tool Pick Pickup Collector Random Color
I do carry poop bags, but seldom use them. I have taught my dogs to poop in their own potty area, and I compost the poop. However, I think we are all settling for cosmetic cures, here. We want it out of sight (and smell) which is why so many don't carry the filled bags on their walks, but leave them alongside the paths. I've seen some folks pick up the bags on the return leg -- but probably not everyone does this. I suggest a couple of things: first, feed dogs an appropriate, raw meat-based diet, and their poop will break down to nothing in a week or so, and have very little volume or odor (unlike the voluminous, stinky stools of kibble-fed dogs.) Second, time your walks for when the dog will be ready to eliminate and take him to a designated spot. If you have a yard, use a digester. Carry bags for the unexpected urge: I only have to bag poop once in 3 or 4 months. But we need to consider how to use the poop resourcefully and in environmentally friendly ways. Millions of plastic bags filled with feces mouldering in landfills isn't all that responsible -- it just gets the stuff out of our way. Like all the other stuff we put there and forget about, even feeling superior for doing so! Over 25 years ago, Dr Jonica Newby wrote in The Animal Attraction about the need to recognize that dogs live where people live, and like us, they produce waste. We build sewage systems to deal with our own. If we admit the inevitability of dog poop and build systems to accommodate it, we could be responsible, creative, and even aesthetic about it. She wrote about Paris street sweepers, which are actually suction hoses on trucks that patrol and clean the dog comfort stations on city streets. Below I've copied a paragraph about a potential use for methane from properly decomposed poop. Let's stop the self-congratulatory rhetoric about bagging it up and work for some real solutions! "Greenhouse gas emissions: As animal feces decomposes in an anaerobic environment (like a landfill), it releases methane gas, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. If this gas were harnessed, one ton of animal waste could produce 50 gallons-worth of diesel-equivalent energy which is enough to power some homes for two weeks!" If you Google "environmentally sound dog waste disposal" you will find this and other useful references.

The guy behind it actually thought hard about how to do this particular job better instead of grinding out yet another minor variant of all the others. And it really is a superior tool for the job. Easy to use with one hand while carrying a bucket with the other. Very neat and quick pickups after just a little practice. Also extraordinarily well crafted in every detail: the high quality metal tines, beautiful wood handle with burned-on branding, even Apple-like elegant, simple packaging and documentation. When I emailed with a few pre-purchase questions, I got probably the best customer service ever with a highly detailed and thoughtful reply. This thing is a bargain considering the design, craftsmanship, and service behind it. Even with four big dogs here, the Jibber makes yard clearance a breeze. I love to see someone who has come up with something really great and is so passionate about his product. It might be a humble job, but it's necessary, and now it's (almost) fun.
