Great Giveaway Week #4- Wag 'n Load

Here on FitDog Friday, we know the benefits of getting out and walking our dogs.
No Kelly! You need to walk for exercise!!

















We also believe in cleaning up after our dogs. But there's a problem.
Problem: What to do with your fully loaded poo bag as you continue your walk?
Solution:
a. Just carry it and ignore the looks of everyone who knows what's inside that thin plastic bag.
b. Stuff it in your coat pocket and vow to run to the dry cleaners immediately after.
c. Drop it in a neighbor's trash can along your route and hope they don't notice.
d. Wish that someone would invent a better way!

Well you don't have to wish any longer. Check out Wag 'n' Load, a new, convenient, discreet and sanitary way to take care of your dog's business.


 
Wag 'n' Load is a nice, nylon pouch you can carry hands-free by either clipping onto your dog's leash, or your belt loops. You can attach a poo bag dispenser on one side, and hand sanitizer on the other. (ugh! I can't tell you how many times I've needed hand sanitizer after cleaning up after my dogs!)

We were sent two samples to try out and review.
PROS:
* attractive
* the velcro attachments hold fast. The bag didn't slip down the leash!
* convenient
*durable. Nicely made, thick material, lined pouch
* washable
* a great solution to this problem!

CON:
* the bag, especially when "loaded," adds weight to the leash that can feel a bit awkward

(update: The designers note that if you attach the velcro through the loop at the top or very bottom of the leash, the extra weight is not noticeable.)


Although the Wag 'n' Load bag is a bit heavy on the leash, there was something kind of satisfying about having my dogs carry their own business!
It can be attached to your belt loops instead. As an alternative, I would also like to use the Wag 'n' Load with a long, over the shoulder strap.

























Overall, Wag 'n' Load is extremely well-made and designed. This is an awesome product that every dog walker should have. We really like ours, and consider it an essential dog walking tool.

  8. Amazing all the stuff they come up with to handle a bit of poo! Mom is just used to holding onto the bag. There is usually a trash can somewhere along the route and most people we meet are dog walkers and they have bags too. But Mom says as a new dog owner she would have been all over this idea, now she is way too used to it.

    My dogs invariably go right at the beginning of the walk, so I can be stuck with that bag the whole way! This is a great idea.

    It would be useful especially when we go hiking and there's no trash bins for miles.

  13. How handy! The dogs always seem to go soon after we leave the house which means having to carry loaded bags for the whole walk. This would be great!

  14. For my mom, she is always taking her two dogs for walks

  15. It actually doesn't bother me to carry the bags... it's just part of being a responsible pet owner. But I would like to try this out anyway as I wonder if it would making walking Shiloh safer. After what happened to Cheyenne, I'm hyper aware of safety while walking. While I know it's minimal, holding the bag and the leash at the same time does diminish grip on the leash. Had nothing to do with Cheyenne's attack and it's a very low risk issue anyway, but anything that adds safety is a positive!

  17. I always pick up after my Pug and this system is nicer than what I use. Thanks

  18. My five Treeing Walker Coonhounds can be a real handful on walks - I usually talk two or three at a time, and even then, I don't have an open hand to carry anything. I need to have poop bags with me, of course, and this would be a great way to carry them!

  19. This would be nice to have because sometimes it can be a bit hard carrying my water bottle, the dog poop, the dog and my nephew's toddler's hand. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Because having to carry around a bag full of poop and manage 3 leashes during walks just. doesn't. work.
