We've included a variety of biodegradable and leakproof options with plenty of room and durability to safely contain and secure a pet's poop, regardless of its size, shape, or volume.

Editor's Notes

May 22, 2020:

I remember what it was like cleaning up after my very first dog. While my family and I have lived in the same house since then, we never thought about cleaning our pup's business more than once or twice a week from the backyard in those days, so you can imagine what it probably smelled like and how easy it was for our dog to step in his mess. My childhood stupidity notwithstanding, I've learned a great deal more about our pets over the years and how to take care of them. Today, there seem to be many products dedicated to cleaning up after our furry friends, such as training pads and porch potties, but when it comes down to just grabbing the physical waste and finding a place to store and dump it, the most straightforward solution is one of these poop bags.

Many of our options, like the Mutt Mitt 2-Ply and Doggy Do Good Premium have extra-wide bottoms for holding a lot of waste, the former of which has convenient side seams to prevent tears or potentially harmful hand exposure while the latter option is fully biodegradable.

If the idea of even making contact with Rex's "little presents" through a bag makes you squeamish, then the HealthPro Dispoz-A-Scoop are a great option. You can use their cardboard handles to scoop up the mess and then seal it away without ever having to reach out and touch it.

The versatile Hippo Sak Jumbo aren't only designed for picking up the brown waste from large breeds, but their extra length and interior space make them a good option for disposing of bulky dog diapers and cat litter as well.

We've also included the See Spot Go Premium due to their biodegradable corn starch and polymer construction. Thanks to their bright green color, they're also ideal for picking up after your pooch at night.

Finally, we've added the Pets N Bags Rolls for their water-resistant coatings.
