I don’t know about you, but when I’m out running with my dog, I’m usually juggling the leash, my headphones, a water bottle, and maybe even my iPhone to take a pic of that gorgeous sunset. So how am I supposed to turn the doo-doo bag inside out and tie that annoying knot, all while juggling to keep my hands clean and my headphones from falling into the dirt?
The answer to the problem is: HANDLES. When we started to design a line of dog waste pick-up bags for ZippyPaws, we knew that handles were the way to go.
HANDLES = LESS HASSLE
- Everyone (after trying bags with handles)
Keeping to that promise, we now have 3 products to make picking up after your dog a little bit easier. All 3 options come with handles so you’ll never have to worry about unwanted contact with doo-doo!
Check our chart below to find the product that’s just right for you and your pup.

The new year is right around the corner! Have you made your resolutions yet? Even if you don’t typically make New Years resolutions, consider instead setting some goals for you and your dog to enhance your lifestyles and make 2014 one of the best years yet!
1. More Exercise
This is one of the most popular resolutions that people make for the new year, and it can also benefit your dog! Jogging with a canine can make the experience more enjoyable for you and this is also a good way to get your dog’s exercise in!
2. More Snuggling
Strive to build an even stronger relationship with your furry friend. Spend more time with your pet during the day, snuggle with your pet after you get off work as a way for both of you to relax. Don’t forget to get some new toys!
3. Eating Healthy
This doesn’t necessarily imply dieting, but pay careful attention to what goes in your body. That goes for your pet as well- do you really know what goes into your dog’s food? This year, make it a resolution to thoroughly check both what you feed your furry family member and yourself! This means carefully measuring out food portions as well as finding age-appropriate food for your pet.
4. Groomed to Perfection
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but grooming is essential for your dog to maintain its luscious locks, avoid tangles, and also for insulation. Make it a goal to take your dog to the doggy salon for some well-deserved pampering every once in a while… and spoil yourself too!
5. Try Something New
You have 365 days to experience something with your pet that you haven’t done before! Make the most of your year by introducing both you and your dog to a new activity! Some suggestions: kayaking, surfing, hiking a new trail, road tripping, or just learning a few new tricks!
