Why should you pick up dog waste?
It is the law in virtually all areas that dog owners must pick up after their dogs. Both litter control laws and or “pooper scooper” ordinances require this and most require fines to the dog owners for non-compliance. While that should be reason enough to clean up after dogs, the presence of dog waste that is not picked up is also a nuisance to other dogs and people that want to use these same dog-friendly areas. No one wants to see, smell or step in dog waste. Finally, and most importantly, dog waste is a serious pollutant and health hazard. It contains numerous pathogens which are dangerous to both humans and dogs who come in direct contact with it, and when not picked up, pollutes our water systems.
DOGIPOT® Product Questions
What are the size of the DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™?
DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ are 8″ wide by 13″ tall. This size is large enough to handle picking up in virtually all situations but not too large where you are paying for unnecessary material and extra product that is needlessly disposed of in landfills.
How should I store my DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ and SMART Litter Trash Bags™?
- Keep in original DOGIPOT® box and packaging
- Keep in controlled environment prior to use not to exceed 30°C or 86°F
- Avoid storage in direct sunlight
- Use prior to “Use By”
Failure of the above will reduce the shelf-life and may adversely impact the performance characteristics of these bags and void any warranty.
What quantities do DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ come in?
DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ come in two types: the most popular boxed-rolls and our header paks (i.e., hanging bags). Each boxed roll contains 200 bags and can be purchased in in any quantity, but come in convenient 10-roll, 20-roll and 30-roll cases. Each case of Header Pak bags contains 20 cards of 100 bags each.
Is there more waste with roll bags than hanging bags?
Despite some claims from companies which heavily promote hanging bags, numerous observation and usage studies have shown that there is no additional waste with rolled bags over hanging bags. Most studies showed that pick up rates were actually better with rolled bags because dog owners who happened to take an additional bag from the dispenser, used it when they were not conveniently close to a dispenser. Fortunately, DOGIPOT® offers both rolled and hanging bags for our customers’ convenience and preference.
Do DOGIPOT bags fit other brands of dispensers?
DOGIPOT was the first major brand on the market beginning in 1994. Most competitors have modeled their dispensers and products after DOGIPOT. However, though they have imitated DOGIPOT they certainly have not duplicated DOGIPOT. Thus, DOGIPOT SMART Litter Pick Bags fit in all major brand rolled and hanging dispensers.
How many bags do DOGIPOT® dispensers hold?
All DOGIPOT® dispensers and DOGVALETS® conveniently hold 400 bags.
How many dispensers/pet stations and DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ do I need?
The amount of dispenser units and associated DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Bags™ will vary depending on the location and expected dog traffic. Installing enough dispensers in the right locations within in dog-friendly areas is critical to maximize usage and increase pick up rates. The locations should be in places where most dog owners will walk by (e.g., entrance to park area) and at reasonable distances apart so a dispenser is never too far to retrieve a pick up bag. A good starting estimate of the needed litter pick up bags would be at least 1.5 rolls or 3 header paks per month per dispenser. Monitoring usage from there will indicate whether usage is greater and more bags or less bags are needed each month. Never hesitate to contact DOGIPOT® for assistance in determining your product needs.
