After 30 hours of research & testing, we’re comfortable recommending the Zapücci Premium Dog Waste Bag Dispenser as the best dog poop bag holder currently on the market as of spring 2020. It’s stylish is easy to load with a convenient metal spindle to hold your bag roll in place as you thread the bags through the other side. Another favorite is the The Hide and Drink poop bag holder, with real leather, rugged construction, good looks, and the fact that it doesn’t constantly snap open leaving you to chase a a roll of poop bags as it rolls away, unrolling everything. Read further for what we found out when testing & reviewing all current models. Don’t like leather but like the idea of a one-piece poop bag holder? Metropaws has an excellent one-piece case made entirely from plant-based material! And don’t forget poop bags! Our favorites are sturdy, affordable and a discreet solid black color- after all, you don’t need your poop bag to look like a party favor bag!

Poop bags are an essential item for dog owners. Unless you are on your own property it is usually a legal requirement to pick up after your dog. Some places such as apartment complexes or neighborhoods may even DNA check your dog so those culprits who don’t handle this task can be easily pinpointed and slapped with a hefty fine. Legal requirements aside, it’s good practice to pick up dog waste as it’s one of the leading causes of pollution at dog parks, lakes, and streams where people like to walk their dogs.

How To Choose:

Consider where you’d like to have your bags. Would it be easier to have the dispenser hooked to your leash? If your dog is an energetic walker and a dangling item off his leash would get in your way or become obnoxious, consider one that can hook on or be carried in your purse, crossbody bag or on belt loop. Some owners choose to put a pack on their dog or loop their bag holder on his harness so he can carry his own supplies.

If you are walking with more than one dog, convenience will be essential as you may end up completing your task with one hand. In this case you’ll want a dispenser that you can quickly grab a bag from without too much fuss.

Our last category is for holding a poop bag after it’s been used. If you don’t want to have to carry the bag yourself these convenient holders will do the dirty work for you.

Pouch-style style: Usually a soft-sided leather or nylon bag with a hole or grommet that bags can be pulled through as they come off the roll

Hard-case style: A hard plastic or metal holder meant to hold rolls of poop bags with a large opening allowing easy access to pull bags off the roll

Post-poop style: A holder to contain or hold the poop bag after you’ve cleaned up your dog’s waste and disposal may not be possible right away

At-home style: A holder that will dispense poop bags at home, usually wall-mounted

The right poop bag holder will make it easier to enjoy your time outdoors with your dog and keep the environment safe.
