We all love our dogs, but there are some aspects of caring for them that we don't particularly look forward to. When it comes to scooping the poop like a responsible owner, the handi-scoop allows you to do your bit without getting too close. The 32" handle is perfect for reaching and picking up at a distance. If you wish, the scooper jaws can be secured shut with a special elastic loop once you have picked up your dog's 'movement'. It's especially good if you are someone with reduced mobility. It picks up without mess even from gravel. It's up to you whether you want to use a bag or not. If you do, the bag simply attaches with an elastic loop. A big hit with responsible dog owners.
