Poop Scoop

I am about to hit the road in my Airstream traveling with a Saint Bernard. I am sure most of you know what that means... and I have a very bad gag reflex.

Any recommendations on a nice pooper scooper? Prefer it to have an 8 foot handle but I know that is unrealistic .

Hi,
Aw geeeeez, it's just dog poop; Use a doggie poop bag. Put your hand inside of the bag and use it like a glove, pick up the poop, turn the bag inside out, and tie it shut. [no touching of anything] Take the doggie poop bag to trash can or camp ground doggie poop bucket.

It's not hard to do ... it's part of dog ownership, and a necessity, no matter what kind of dog you have. They all poop if they are healthy ... and you have to pick up after them. If you don't, you will likely find yourself leaving the campground sooner than you planned.

I would, however, suggest the largest-size poop bags you can find!

Grocery store bags are good for this. Big enough for a St. Bernard's business and when you do as Bob said, you can tie it up nice and neatly closed by making a knot with the 2 handles.

This is what we use, since both of us have some difficulty bending/squatting/stooping:

This is exactly what we do with our golden retriever's pooh, re-purpose those bags!

I tried the grocery bags, but I found that they tear easily. So, I started using the rolls of bags ... They are easier than stuffing the supermarket bags into your pocket. Plus, when you pick the poop up on cool mornings, it helps to warm your hands.

Ok, did that bring a gag on?

I don't have this particular one but we have a similar dispenser on the leash. That way I don't forget to take a bag when I walk the dogs.

Poop Bags » Martha Stewart Pets™ Waste Bag Dispenser | PetSmart

Then use the advanced scooping technique Bob described above.

Absolutely! :-p

:-)

The rolls of bags like you get at petsmart? Hope this doesn't cause a gag but Daisy's production seems a bit too significant for those... :-o

Not a gag, but definitely an " aw yuck"

I had a 200 lb Mastiff. The poop bags worked fine.
