Many studies have shown that it is usually the female who performs the good deed. Maybe because she has more experience changing dirty diapers, but males can perform this job very well too. Maybe because she has more nimble fingers to gently scoop up the waste, but again, men can be instructed in this fine task. Maybe she is more environmentally conscious and aware of the health and pollution hazards of dog poop. Maybe she is better at remembering the waste bags. Well ladies, if you are tired of always being the one to pick up the waste, then there is a simple solution - teach them! And have your dog waste bags carrier attached to the leash at all times with a ready supply of dog poop bags. Many carriers also have extra pockets for dog training accessories and one even offers a pocket for an inverted bottle of hand sanitizer.
And teach your children, too. If they are educated in how our dog's waste pollutes our rivers, streams and lakes and frequently closes our beaches, then they may also be encouraged to do their part in protecting our environment. Because kids, beaches and summer go together. Another teaching moment for your children would be explaining the advantages of using biodegradable dog poop bags. Why would we place something that is completely biodegradable into a bag that will exist in a landfill for a few hundred generations? Finally, kids are shorter - so they are closer to the ground and to the dog waste. Leave the stooping and the picking up to them. Then they can place the full dog poop bag into the dog waste carrier, preventing breakage of the bag and the unsightliness of a dangling poop bag.
What we must remember is that whoever chooses to bag the dog waste knows how to properly do so. They especially must know the importance of always using hand sanitizer when finished. Using a discreet, convenient and sanitary dog waste bags carrier will give the responsible pooper picker upper all of the tools that they need to finish the task correctly and safely.
