Poo bags are essential to use to pick up after your pet, whether you’re cleaning up the backyard or are out on a walk in the neighborhood. The best poo bags should be durable enough not to split and tear on twigs and sticks in the undergrowth, have a large capacity, and be easy to open – but also easily biodegradable. Some are even scented, which can be a relief as you swoop down on your dog's business. Choosing the wrong brand of poop bags can lead to spills and messes, which are easy to avoid with better materials and a better design. As hardened dog owners we know what to look for in a quality poo bag – here's our top picks.
This product comes with a convenient dispenser to easily obtain the bags and rip them off the roll quickly after the dog does its business. The thick material is sturdy and easy to handle.
