As most dog owners will appreciate, one of the least pleasant parts of owning a dog is cleaning up after them, then finding a suitable place to dispose of the poop or poo.
- You can pick dog poo up in a plastic bag, but we are all being told to save the world by using less plastic. It then needs to go in your bin, which in summer starts to smell.
- If you’re brave you can put the poop down your inside loo, but carrying it through the house is just asking for trouble!
- Chemical toilets are a costly alternative, but they are difficult to balance and that’s only after digging a hole in the garden -not an option for everybody.
- Some owners leave the poop for the slugs to eat, but unfortunately slugs don’t tend to distinguish between doggy-do’s and prize flowers.
We needed a way of disposing of animal waste into the sewage system that was easy to fit, easily usable by ALL ages of pet owners and flushable, so there was a minimal chance of infection and smell.
Dylan did try flushing dog poo down the toilet but after an unfortunate incident of dropping some whilst walking through the house and up the stairs it was deemed that the idea of flushing was good, but the execution of it was not!!!
This is when the Doggybog® cogs started to turn and the Doggybog® was born. As the saying goes ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ and it was that or divorce papers!
Several sleepless nights later and the first working model was created. It was then fitted to the back of our house within 30 minutes and what a difference! Cleaning the back yard is no longer a chore - simply scoop, chute and flush*.
But what about when we take our girls for a walk? We managed to source some flushable poop bags which we carry back, throw down the Doggybog® and wash away. The flushable poop bags then disintegrate in the sewer system.
