Why Anne Main is Wrong

The biggest problem is not the lack...

BBC Countryfile Autumn Diaries

What a great and informative piece on Monday 24th Novembers, BBC Countryfile Autumn Diaries programme Episode 2. So many times when I’m at a show I have a discussion with poeple about why we have to pick up everywhere. It isn’t just about stepping in it, which is nasty and annoying, it’s also about the health of our countryside, water table and farm animals. Picking up after your...

Your dog’s poo is toxic

At last, some one has put up the sign that tells it how it is! YOUR DOG’S WASTE IS TOXIC. This is a great poster placed by the National Trust in St Agnes, Cornwall. Lets hope this starts a new trend of telling people the truth. Picking up after your dog isn’t about fines and avoiding getting caught, it’s about doing the right thing all the time, and knowing why it’s the right...

It’s gonna take more than just another pick up campaign!

Please don’t misunderstand my views written here, I commend everyone involved in trying to encourage more dog owners to act responsibly, but yet another poop scoop campaign, this one entitled THE BIG SCOOP which launches on 14th June 2013, involving Keep Britain Tidy, Ben Fogle, Kirsty Allsop and the Dogs Trust, will bring exactly the same results it always has and NO PERMANENT POSITIVE EFFECT...

Change your Life!

This is why i invented the Dicky Bag – to make people as happy as this! Who would have thought something to do with transporting dog poo could change your life! My Dicky Bag (Size medium in camouflage) arrived yesterday and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is not to have to be carrying my dog poo to the next bin, which could be a mile away. I walk in a 1000 acre wood and because its a...

Review by Trail Magazine

If there is one thing that is guaranteed to annoy everyone in the countryside it is stepping in dog poo.  In fact my dogs are not too keen on stepping on it either!  So that means we dog owners need to pick up, no matter where we are.  For the past year i’ve been using the Dicky Bag to pack out poop from the hills.  This tough neoprene bag can be attached to your rucksack belt, the zip-off...

Do you ever experience De Ja Poo!

How many of you have left a bag of dog poo by a tree or on a fence or rock to be collected on your return route?  Quite a few I bet.  Well you’ll be pleased to know that one of our clever customers (or as we like to call you all, a Dicky Disciple) has come up with an apt name for such habbits.  Judith Armatage of Cambridgeshire refers to this as De Ja Poo! I love it! It would appear that we’re...
