People who bag up dog poop only to leave it on the trail or sidewalk, why do you spend 90% of the effort needed only to fail each time?

  1. This is a big pet peeve for me.

    Bagging it and leaving it is literally the worst option. Encasing it in plastic like some shrine to your dogs bowels? And when they hang it on a tree like the worlds shittiest Christmas ornament?

    🤬

  2. I’ve been with people who do that so that they don’t have to hold it on the entire walk, but they pick it back up on the walk back. If that’s not the case it’s just stupid and pointless, because whatever material the bag is made of will take way longer to dissolve than the contents.

  3. That is a pet hate of mine. There was a post on Facebook recently about someone local whose horse died because people had hung poo bags on TREE BRANCHES, and the horse had eaten them. The bags then blocked their intestines. They’d posted a picture and it looked like someone was decorating the world’s most horrific Christmas tree. People are despicable.

  4. Once in a blue moon, the poop bag will fall off the little bag hook on the dispenser (although when it’s happened, I’ve backtracked and have always found it)

  5. He picked it up only because someone was watching. As soon as no one was watching, his duty was fulfilled, so he got rid of it.

    That’s most dog-owners.

    Feel free to downvote, but it’s true.

  6. Only reason I can think of that isn’t the obvious “they’re an asshole” is they didn’t realize they dropped it. Maybe thought they had it tied to the leash?

  7. I have done this in the past for the reason many people have pointed out – the poo bin is by the gate where I started my walk, and there isn’t another one along the way. I have always picked it up again on the way back.

    And for the person talking about responsibility – not my dog, my parent’s.

  8. We carry a small shoulder bag with us when we walk our dogs. It has a water bottle for rinsing off where the dogs pee, and pooh bags. Once we bag the dog pooh we just put it in the shoulder bag take it home and flush it.

  9. Usually just picking it up on the way back around, and you found it before that happened.

    If you like, you can take care of it before I do. I won’t mind 🙂
