Hello all. I’m writing my first ever product review. Pablo from Puppydog Products kindly sent me a pack of their Puppydog Poop Mitts to try. Over the past few weeks I and my walkers and several of my clients have been using them, and (spoiler alert) they are great! Here’s why:
- The size is perfect in my humble opinion. I have used MANY different implements for picking up poop over the years. Some have worked well, some have worked abysmally, and some have been adequate. What I have normally used over the past 7-8 years are food preparation gloves. I really like them, but whenever I’ve given them to my walkers, many of them find that they’re too small, and it’s tough to get them off your hand without a disaster. Many of the rolled bags for use in those bone shaped holders are way bigger than you’d normally need. Sure, they’re awesome if you have a Great Dane or a Bernese Mountain dog, but otherwise I feel guilty just picking up one dog’s poop per bag. These mitts from Puppydog Products are a great size…good fit for almost any hand and big enough for most BMs without entering the realm of overkill.
- The shape is great. Mitt is the way to go. The shapeless bags that come in rolls are generally unwieldy. The food service gloves I have sworn by for over half a decade have fingers which offer facility, but can result in ‘drops’. The mitt catches everything with ease!
- They are durable. Seriously, this is very important. I have yet to have a tear-through. Sometimes what you’re dealing with may require you to ‘swipe’ a little over the sidewalk. Experience has taught me to be very gentle with that swipe in order not to compromise the bag and find myself wishing I had remembered to carry my hand sanitizer! However, these mitts are as strong as they need to be, so you don’t have to be overly careful. That said, I double bag when in doubt…professional tip from me to you!
- They are biodegradable. It’s 2013. They should be, and they are.
There you have it. Puppydog Products Poop Mitts are available for purchase directly from the website www.puppydogproducts.com in a variety of quantities at totally reasonable prices. Also, Pablo did not ask me for this review. I really like this product, and I decided it was worth telling you about.
