Pamper: Shazam! Sha-Poopie!

Despite the fact that I can't say this product's name without a giggle, the Sha-Poopie helps pet owners be responsible and clean up after their pooches from a distance and without awkward bending. The Sha-Poopie is an extendable, aluminum pole with a recycled plastic cup on the end that you hold "just so" as your dog goes. The disposable cup then snaps shut and you can throw it away, and add another. Super easy!

While this is certainly a creative alternative, I am wondering if my dog would consider the extendable stick (especially all up in his business) to be a playtoy during the walking process. But, in the end, no matter what method people choose to clean up after their pets, I'm all for it. Is this product right for you?

My dog would not go if I was holding that thing behind her. I'd rather just pick it up with a bag when she's done.

right.... 1. Wouldn't work with an Airedale. 2. Particularly not with MY Airedale, who would be way more interested in what the heck I was doing than doing his own business. 3. Finally, I'd be terrified that people driving by would want to know why in the hell I appeared to be saving dog poop...it's embarrassing enough to have people driving, walking by, etc. as I stand lamely on the sidewalk in running gear beside my squatting dog.

Not a prayer of going with that under the booty. We use Biodegradable bags. My friend won't pick up her dogs poo. She just yells at him when he poops and tells him, she'd like him better if he never went to the bathroom.

No way this would work with Brando. He likes to multitask while he poops- he'll squat to go, but find an interesting smell to investigate while doing so and therefore leave a little trail of poop for mommy and daddy to follow. What can I say, he's a hound dog through and through. There's no way I'd be able to follow his little squat walk with this thing!

Cuba would freak and not go outside instead he would run to his pad that is there for when I am at work and go on that. Would I really want someone holding a stick under my butt while I tried to poo?

I like the idea of being a certain distance from the poop but there's no way I could get my golden retriever to go in this. It takes her so long to find a spot she's comfortable with, she wouldn't be too pleased if I was sneaking up behind her with this monstrosity!

I would like to use this, because I hate picking up the poop! (gross, but its hot!!!) however, since i have a huge pup, i doubt this would work...it would have to be lacrosse sized.

I'm gonna go with no. Most dogs I know would be a bit upset that you were sticking something behind them while they were doing business. If it works for you though, why not?

I would rather bend over and pick up my dog's poop than hold that "just so" while my dog is doing its business! At least the plastic bag is discreet and disposable. :)

I'll pass thanks. I can't imagine trying to position this under either of my overly hyper, playful dogs, and then I'd have to carry the stick with me for the rest of the walk. There are plenty of garbage cans in the dog park I go to, I'm perfectly fine with using the bag. On the upside picturing someone actually trying to use this with my dogs was enough to give me a great big laugh! Best laugh I've had so far this week. So thanks sha-poopie.

I don't think Bodhi or Sully would squat over a cup. Hell, I know I hate to pee in cups & I know what is going on! My pups would be confused & want to play with it. Blech!

This is not a product I would ever use. I don't have a problem with using bags, but I only use the biodegradable ones and I doubt that the disposable cup is.

umm this would only work on small pups, but what if your dog is a german shepard of golden retriever?? I dont think so.

Lol at the name! Reminds me of when Peter on Family Guy sang a song called Shaboopy. I do wonder if the dog would be uncomfortable "going" in a little cup type thing. They usually like a tad of privacy, right? "Don't look at me!!!!" This might take some getting used to for a pup.
