Are You Calling My Scoopbox Your Very Own?

Here's a product I literally had to see to believe . . . especially when this dog-waste picker-up promised "no bending and no touching"! My Scoopbox is a disposable, biodegradable alternative to a bag – simply unfold, place over poo, step on the box, and lift with a string. It's easier to understand when you see it for yourself so check out the video below.

Like the gimmicky Sha-Poopie, the concept is great, but I'm not so sure how it would unfold in real-life situations – what's your take?

What if there is not a trash handy, is it easy to hold on to till the end of the walk? Would it kinda get leaky or gooey at least and then wouldn't maybe the bottom fall back out or even the top. What about carrying more than one. I walked a dog that took 3 stops every walk and there were no trash cans and she was a big dog, I could see three of those being difficult to hold onto and handle the big dog they came out of. I just see poo falling and being all over and thats worse than a plastic bag of poo in my opinion.

With my luck, I'd squash the box too far and end up with a wrecked box and a shoeful of doggie doo. Seriously, is it THAT difficult to use a baggie?

I could just see myself letting to string get in the poop, or something equally icky while trying to hold LB's leash and unfold the box. I am not very coordinated.

That seems like you'd be stepping on it to close it, the box would slip and you'd end up with a foot in a poop.

I have a really hard time believing that they work as well as they claim.

Why do I feel like this is just some wacky scheme, to get me to step in poo?

I don't think I would leave the house if I had a pack of these. I'd be putting marbles and cheetos on the floor and pressing them into the box all day long! :)

I wouldn't take the time to use it. My dog is little, so his "business" is also little, and it doesn't bug me to pick it up.

Seems complicated! My dog wouldn't stand there patiently to wait for me to assemble it. And all that material seems wasteful.

At that rate I would have already had the poo picked up in my environmentally friendly bag and thrown away.
