Telescopic dog poo catcher

Dog poop catcher

I wouldn’t mind having a pet dog, I enjoy walking (especially in the rain) and it would give me somebody to talk to in the day other than my MSN contacts. The one thing that puts me off having having a pet mutt is the fact I’d have to pick up the mess it would leave behind, picking up a dog turd with my hand in a plastic bag makes my skin crawl. This next gadget could be the answer to that, the Sha-Poopie™, a telescopic dog turd catcher.

Invented by a man who absolutely hates picking up after his dog, The Sha-Poopie™ makes the job both easier and less unpleasant. No bending, no trying to use a stick to scrape dog poop onto a newspaper or, worse yet, using a plastic bag to actually pick up it up!

Available from Solutions for $19.95 (though I must admit I’m not convinced this is the answer).

  1. only in america would people be this lazy, this fat; only thing now, is something to walk there poor friends…..

  2. OK, now I can really see some uses for this! If you have a 14 – 15 month old kid who’s walking now, but still not potty trained….no need for diapers! Just have Momma running behind the little lad with this contraption “ready for action”! Then she can yell “BOMBS AWAY” whenever the kid manages to do number two.


  3. Yes, NotAmerican, but we are at least inventive! I am so very glad that there no fat people in your country of Botswana, or Mbagube, or some other part of the world where no one really knows you exist, because, by the by….most countries are dealing with an overweight population that is growing (pun intended). No go be disdainful of the world’s greatest power elsewherre…good boy.

  4. Actually, notamerican, only in America do people clean up after their dogs. You third-worlders will eventually catch on, ’till then, enjoy your squalor!

  5. I can just see it now. Getting my dog to actually poop into this telescopic catcher. My dog doesn’t even like it when someone watches her or tries to get close to her. So this invention is unlikly to end up in my possession. =(

  6. that sort of invention would only be used in america
    and you would have to cary the damn thing around every time you take your dog for a walk and is it realy a essential investment?

  7. This was on a show last night on Animal Planet (cable channel in America) called “Your Pet Wants That” about cool and crazy pet gadgets. It was invented by the brother of Tony Shaloub (Monk) and actually used by Tony in the series.

  8. I know this sounds like a terrible idea, but when your dog has diarrhea it is not fun to pick it up. Also, if everyone used this then the spread of roundworms and giardia would diminish. Not lazy but very smart for diarrhea stricken dogs.
