Poop happens. Doo-ing the right thing and picking up after Fido just got easier with the LOOP waste bag dispenser from Loft312. LOOP keeps you in control of your roll with patent-pending technology and splashy, fashion-forward colors.
We’re big fans of Wildebeest here at Dog Milk, so when I saw that they had recently launched an entire new product line, I got REALLY SUPER EXCITED. You may be familiar with their Meadow Rugs and Bandana Collars already. They’ve taken the same playful, design conscious approach and applied it to their new series of colorful collars, leashes, bowls, and waste bag carriers, called the Funston Collection.
For dog-lovers who are passionate about their politics (and their poop-picking-up duties), MetroPaws is introducing a line of limited edition waste bags just for you! Smear Campaign Political Poop Bags are available in packages of 80 degradable bags, as your favorite Democrap (Obama) or Repooplican (Romney). A great gift for political allies and opponents alike! (Just don’t be surprised if one ends up on your doorstep…)
Hey, this is pretty awesome: The Dogbag Butler is a handy, smartly-designed waste bag dispenser that can be mounted anywhere, such as right by your door, for dog bags always at the ready. The Butler (available in white or black) dispenses one scented, tie-handle bag at a time like a tissue, and is even weatherproof for outdoor use. Maybe I’ll put one in my front yard — you know, for the convenience of others. Ahem.
As part of the MFA Designer as Author & Entrepreneur program at SVA, design student Jose Fresneda designed Baxter, a very fancy pooper scooper concept.
The Doggie Barrel is a new pet waste bag holder designed by Joel Yatscoff for Umbra. It attaches to your dog’s collar or leash with a clip and includes one roll of 40 bags.
“I love walking his dog, but I hate carrying around rolls of waste bags. Now my dog can carry his own! With its gently curved shape, raised hoops and embossed Swiss Cross, Doggie Barrel parodies the wooden brandy barrels associated with the famous St. Bernard dog! The loops on the back of the barrel easily attached to a dog’s collar or clip to the leash,” Joel says of his design.
It’s available for purchase in either red or gray on umbra.com.
