Where there's Muck there's NO Brass

Frightening statistics have just been revealed on the amount of dog poop generated in each county of the UK and the cost of sending it to landfil.

Streetkleen who are campaigning for change in the way councils deal with dog waste have collected together this information to encourage councils to recycle dog waste into energy (yes it can be done - I've seen it with my own eyes!).

Another interesting outcome with these statistics, for those who think stick and flick is the answer to dog poop, is how much poison would make it into our ecological system if no one picked up!

 

Cop a feel!

WE are proud to be able to say that more and more retailers are seing the amazing results of stocking Dicky Bags. We are updating our stockists list to help you find your nearest becuase we know how important it is to be able to see and feel our amazing bags.  Since exhibiting at the BSAVA World Congress in April we have been inundated with trade orders from Veterinary practices plus as usual you will be able to find at least 1 stockist at most of the County Shows, Country Fairs and Dog shows that are held across the UK from now until September.

This weekend, 12th and 13th May, you will find dicky bags at the Whippet Tea Party in Port Elliot, The London Pet Show at Earls Court and the All About Dogs Show in Brentwood (Towie fame) run by Robin Hood Game and Country Shows.

 

beware the perils of "de ja Poo"

For all you happy dog walkers out there who think they have solved their Poop problem by leaving your bags for collection on your return walk I have a word of warning!

If you are spotted leaving your poo bags and walking away, you will be fined, and possibly for 2 offences!

You can protest your innocence as much as you like but the evidence is you have littered by leaving it and the enforcer will not be prepared to wait to see if you collect it on your return.  They are also within their rights to issue you a ticket for not removing your dog's faeces.  A double whammy!

To be sure you don’t end up with a £50 or even a £100 fine can I suggest you invest in a Dicky Bag so that you never feel, or get treated, like a criminal!

 

The CURE for Dog Fouling

This is my response to all of the media coverage given to the increase in bagged dog waste found on beaches. We need to talk about the CURE and stop just moaning about the PROBLEM!

I have I have known about the dangers of leaving dog waste for years but everyone poo-pooed me (excuse the pun!) plus I was becoming more aware of the added problem of poo bag dumping so I invented the Dicky Bag. It is a fashionable solution to dog fouling; no fines, no bans just trying to engage with dog owners on a more adult level by creating a product which solves the issue of swinging smelly bags of dog waste on what would otherwise be a lovely walk. I am trying to change the general attitude to clearing up dog mess. How many more years will we persist in the futile talk about getting tough with bans and fines? We would need round the clock surveillance in every corner fo the country to catch these people. It’s time to try a new approach? Make being a responsible dog owner fashionable, help me change the way we think and we might just make a difference and see the problem decrease - it's got to be worth a try surely!

Great for carrying... anything!

Just wanted to say thank you for my Camo style Dicky Bag - as well as being ideal for walking Muttley, it's perfect for carrying extra paintballing ammo!

Miranda's Windy Holiday

Just come back from a somewhat windy and sometimes wet holiday in Devon. I asked for the dicky bag to be delivered to the rental property we were staying in. They were there ready and waiting (I purchased two, one for a friend). Read more

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
