When you’re on the go with your dog a supply of poop bags is essential. 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 just 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. Depending on how long you’ll be out, how frequently and how much your dog poops, you may need more than just a few bags stuffed in your pocket. And let’s be honest, you don’t need a bag free-floating in your pockets or purse as they could become damaged or torn, rendering them useless and leaving you in a very awkward spot. A dog poop bag holder or dispenser is a convenient and easy way to handle the problem. A dog poop bag holder for after the task has been completed may be the product you never knew you needed!

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 are looking for a trash can or on a hike where 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.
