Pooper Scooper Convention

Pooper Scoopers from Dicky BagOne of the fun things about being involved in one of the leading poop scoop products is keeping an eye on what the competition are doing.

Well I have to say that in Nashville, Tennessee they really do take the prize for innovative events and it is not just a one off either. They are preparing to celebrate their 7th annual Pooper Scooper convention and are featuring the ‘Turd Herding Contest’. Run by the Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists a non-profit trade organization and aimed at educating ‘the professional pooper scooper’. This brings to question what a professional pooper scooper is. Do they actually pay people in the U.S. to pick up other peoples dog poop, surely it is up to all dog owners to pick after their own dog?  Everyone should be responsible for their own pets dog poop disposal.

What we really need in the UK and I am sure it is the same elsewhere is to channel resources into educating the irresponsible owners who continually ignore their dogs’ number twos and leave it for one of us to tread it.........YUK!

The Turd herding contest involves dozens of fake dog poops placed around the hotel and there is a competition to see who can pick up the most piles in two minutes. Strict rules are enforced with penalties for body checking the competitions, this sounds like serious stuff!

Well done to the Americans for entertaining us and making the serious job of picking up poops fun. But how are we going to encourage ALL dog owners to pick up their poop, I suggest we recommend at Dicky Bag for the most convenient and easiest way of disposal.

Dog surfing

Other fun competitions I have come across involving our dogs include the Worlds Ugliest Dog Competition involving all sorts of ugly mutts. A Dog Surfing Competition where all entrants had three waves to impress the judges and were marked on their confidence, length of the ride and their ability to ‘grip it and rip it’. Iron Dog which tests stamina, obedience and agility of your dog and your fitness as you will be running over tough territory and even wading through streams in some events.

Maybe we should have the World Dog Turd Hurling Championship here in the UK.......!

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!"

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

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!

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!
