You’re walking in a winter wonderland, pristine from a new snowfall. And then suddenly you spot it…the pile of dog poop that someone neglected to pick up.
Not only does that pile o’ poop mar the scenery (and don’t let us get started about the impact on creating snow angels) but in continued cold conditions, the poop hangs on until the next thaw. One study by the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) even found, “Bacteria from fecal material—in particular, dog fecal material—may constitute the dominant source of airborne bacteria in Cleveland’s and Detroit’s wintertime air….”
The solution, of course, is to pick up the poo on each and every walk. The PooVault makes the job as pleasant as can be–no more carrying a sagging bag of steaming poop in your gloved hands!
Resembling a mini vault to lock in the odors and prevent that embarrassing trudge to the trash can with a droopy poop bag in tow, the PooVault eliminates poop smells, stores dirty and squishy bags, and changes the awkward extended poop bag arm to a relaxed arm at your side.
The PooVault clips to your belt or pocket with a built-in belt clip or you can attach it to your leash or belt (I keep mine attached to my dog walking bag) with a carabiner clip.
When you pick up your dog’s poop, twist the bag then drop it into the vault, snap it shut, and continue on your way. The lid closes in the poop and its built-in O-ring holds in the accompanying odors–so you don’t have to smell or see the bag and its contents. Take your time walking to the trash can or carrying the bag back home (even if your winter walk takes you over the river and through the woods).
When you scoop your dog’s poop, you’ll try to remove extra air from the bag then tie it off–then drop it in the PooVault. (The PooVault is large enough to hold a poop bag with air–but you want to leave room for future poo in case a trash can is not right around the corner.)
In other terms, the PooVault makes every walk more Happy and less Crappy. Because, without scooping the poop, more and more winter dog walkers will be met with signs like this:
The PooVault is made in the USA from recyclable #2 HDPE–so you can feel extra good about scooping that poop!
