Dog poo poisons the water table

I wouldn't consider myself a green activist, but whilst doing research into the Dicky Bag I came across some disturbing facts about the harm dog poo causes to the water table.  Many people justify not picking up after their dog by stating that is more environmentally friendly to leave it to break down naturally - well they're wrong.  Tongue out

Dog poo contains Faecal Coliform Bacteria, Roundworm, Hookworm, Tapeworm, Whipworm, Giardia Heartworm Disease, E Coli, Cryptosporidiosis, Toxacaria Canis and other parasites.  These don't disappear when the poo has broken down.  They sink into the earth and then when it rains (which is quite often in the UK) these parasites and toxins get washed in to streams and rivers so polluting the water.  Even worse than this is the theory held by people living on the coast that it is fine to leave poo on a beach because the tide will come in and it will be washed directly into the sea.  The sea isn't a big toilet!

In Victorian times us humans became clued up to the serious illness caused by pumping raw sewage into our waterways so why do these ignorant people think it's ok to to fill our seas with animal excrement.   

Parasitic infections are a danger to everyone and can make humans, especially children very ill and for pregnant women can pose a serious threat to their unborn child and cause blindness.

For further shocking details take a look at a report by Taci Watson for USA today

Just what I needed!

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

Best gift ever!

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!
