Carry Your Dog's Poop in Style with the Do-G-Bag

Carrying around a bag of stinky dog poop during a walk with the dog isn't exactly the most exciting thing in the world, but it's still very important to pick up after our dogs when out walking. Dog poop can be hazardous to the environment and cause other dogs, animals, or even humans to become sick if not picked up. Plus, it can make for some pretty unhappy neighbors.

Special thanks to my daughter, Lily, on being my photographer :)

Since today is the #ScoopThatPoop campaign hosted by Sugar, Gizmo, Garth, and Oz, I thought it would be the perfect time to share our review of the Do-G-Bag from LiveLoveAndBark.com. Live Love & Bark is an online dog supply shop run by Nancy Herrmann with the assistance of her Goldendoodle, Murphy. Nancy sent one of her handmade Do-G-Bag dog poop purses to test out and review. 

Murphy the Goldendoodle and a camoflouge Do-G-Bag.

The Do-G-Bag is designed to carry a plastic bag of poop hidden safely inside a waterproof pocket that closes with velcro so that you don't have to carry it around in your hand when you're walking your dog. It's also good to keep that stinky dog poop smell at a minimum. In the front of the bag is a smaller pouch that you can hold other things like a cell phone, keys, dog poop bags, dog treats, or whatever else you might want to bring out with you.

Left: Waterproof interior designed to hold dirty dog poop bags.
Right: Front pouch to put your goodies in. 

When I received the package, I was of course excited to open it and see what the bag looked like in person. I received the "Willow" Do-G-Bag, but there are a couple of other colors and designs to choose from at Live Love & Bark. 

I really like the quilted look of the Do-G-Bag and think it's super cute. It's not too big - 8"x10" - which is good because I like to carry as little as possible with me when I'm out. The bag has a shoulder strap style that goes across your body. The strap is very comfortable and is just the perfect width. I'll admit that my strap is a little long for me at 52 inches, but I'm kind of a small person so that happens a lot. According to Live Love & Bark's website, they are happy to customize the strap size at no additional charge if need be. 

I really like the fact that the Do-G-Bag is handmade and can tell that its quality is excellent. I think it's priced reasonably at $29.99 too. Most of all, I'm excited that I can carry my dog's poop, among other things, in style!

Hey mom, does this look good on me too?

  1. That that is a cute bag! I am also a super minimalist walker. It is tough to comfortably and fashionably carry empty bags but especially full ones.

  2. That is a great bag!! Too good for poop, in my opinion ;)
    No one would ever think there's a poop inside it.

  4. clever idea. I like: Do-G-Bag - Dog Poop Bag Holder - Willow. But....my husband does most of the "poop duty" and would NEVER carry a bag like this.......maybe she should come up with a line for guys that don't look like purses?

  9. My two are backyard poopers (which I pick up at least once per day), so I don't usually have to worry about carrying poop on walks. But I really like these and would totally use one if I needed to. No one would ever even suspect there was poo in there! In fact, I don't think I would even use it for poo... I might just use it as a regular purse, lol. I'm not a girly-girl so the camo would probably be my option.

    1. I know it's so cute! I'm debating using it as a purse too :) It would be good for baby stuff I think.

    2. I use mine as a purse all the time! It is great for shopping and going to the vet. Your hands are free!! People seem to notice the little dog label on it too!!

  14. I love that Willow pattern! I don't feel weird in RV parks carrying around bags of poop, but when we're somewhere else, I feel SO stupid! This would be wonderful to have.

  16. Those are all pretty but we like the indigo one best. That looks pretty cool.

  17. What a stylish and non-smelly solution to carrying your poop. When I am hiking, I place the poop bags inside of a ziplock and put them in my pack until I can get to a trash can.

  18. What a great idea! Some people are just so creative. Those are really pretty bags and might encourage more people to clean up after their dogs. It could make a great Christmas gift for the dog person that has everything!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh wow. This is a really great idea. I would never have thought of this. I am definitely going to look into this. I can't stand carrying around bags of poo when I walk my dog. This will definitely help.

  20. The bag is very attractive...reminds of the high priced Vera Bradley bags...Thanks for joining our hop today!

    1. Thanks Gizmo for hosting. It just registered in my head that there were more people than just Sugar hosting it so I had to update that :)

  21. Wow, those are cute and a good idea... although I'd hate to put the poop in it.

    I have a little cell phone/poop bag pouch that velcros on to Rita's leash. When I have a full bag, I just open the one velcro strap, and then close it up again across the end of the bag, so the bag hangs off her leash and I don't have to carry it. (If that makes any sense at all, the way I described it...)

    1. I think I know what you're talking about. I don't think anyone would ever suspect there was poop in this bag either lol.

  22. Who knew poop could be so stylish? What a clever idea!

  23. What a cute bag! I love how it's lined and waterproof. The one time I was walking the dogs and had on pants that didn't have pockets (ok, so they were sweatpants, whatever) and I realized that I was holding my cell phone and poop bag in the same hand. That was a pretty gross moment.

  27. I could manage the camo bag but I'm not sure if I could convince Huffle's Papa to carry one :) Still, I think it'd be nice.

    1. Yes - I know exactly what you mean! Fortunately if it does get messed in, it's cleanable.

  29. Thanks for pawticipating! What a great idea - you can carry the poop hands-free! (and mom says that's particularly helpful if you're walking more than one dog). Plus we love handmade things, and these bags are very cute!
