Why Do I Need Poo Bags?
Everyone should clear up their dog's poo on a walk. Unfortunately not everyone does.Leaving poo may seem ok to leave because surely it's biodegradable and is natural? Well, actually it depends what you've been feeding your dogs: any medicine, any wormers, what about bits of chewed up toys or does their food contain preservatives? These can be damaging to the environment.
Dog poo also contains various bacterias that can pollute waterways and even spread diseases, like E-Coli. They can also contain worms - which can pass onto you, your friends, your family and even other dogs.
Not only are their major health benefits to you and your dog for clearing up dog poo; it's also actually the LAW that you pick up after your dogs. You can be fined up to £80.
So in short: pick up the poo to create a healthier space for you, your friends, your family, your dog, other dogs and the environment. It's a no brainer really.
Of course it is not a fun job. But by taking on a dog you also take on this responsibility. The thought of lots of dog bags in all of your pockets is annoying. Often it's also easy to think you have enough poo bags but you've actually not managed to take that many while they are stuffed in your pocket. Or have you ever tried to take one out and a few fallout of your pocket, and of course, typically the wind picks up and you end up littering and losing your poo bag supply. It's not fun. There is a possible solution...
