What is the Least Favorite part of Walking your Labrador?? I asked and you answered… Carrying a Fresh Steamy Poopy Bag.

We have all been there on our walk and our sweet Labbies decide that it is time to take a poopy. I know when I take Brody and Saban for a walk I Hope and Pray that I make it to the park for their poopies. That is because the trash cans are there and I do not have to carry 2 bags a dooty with me on our walk. But then again, who doesn’t love carrying fresh poop. What stinks is when the neighbor comes to talk to me and I get to stand there and discuss current events with the sweet perfume of dooty in the air and in my hands. Or are you the late night walker that “conveniently” blames the darkness for not being able to see the poop, so it is left behind as you look both ways to make sure that now one saw you. Then some of us will pick up the poop, put it in the bag, leave it and think you are going to remember to get it on the way back. Yea right.

So here comes the Solution…

The Fifth Paw

Once I saw this device I just knew it was for me. It is just what it says it is… a FIFTH PAW for you.

As you can see it is very easy to attach to any standard lead and does a superb job of staying in place. Now I use a Martingale style leash so I had to make one slight modification to mine by removing one of the orange teeth and it worked perfectly. To keep it in place i used a rubber band, but you will not have to worry about this if you use a standard lead.

Let me tell you how much I use the Fifth Paw. Every Single Day! Seriously. This has made my walks so much easier and enjoyable. Plus, I am not concerned with rushing and making it to the park. The boys do their “duty”, I pick it up, tie a knot in the bag and then clip it to the Fifth Paw. DONE! Now the steamy poopy bag just hangs there on the lead and OUT of my hands. Do you know how helpful this is? It is a LABsend when you have two Labradors.

AS you can see there are 3 dooty slots to hold all the bags, plus you can double up if you need to.

The Fifth Paw is made of hard plastic and as you can see from the pictures it can take a beating. I have had mine drag on the concrete, dropped and stepped on with out any issues.

It lends you a paw in carrying those poop bags with out having you do double “duty” with managing the leash and poop bags.

I can’t tell you how much I love the Fifth Paw. I think it is a MUST have for any Labrador Parent.

You can pick one up via Amazon for $14.99+Shipping.

    I use it every day when I walk my 6 greyhounds. I don’t have to worry about carrying 6 bags of poop and it frees my hands from the smell and safety precautions. I have also taken mine down on some farms and a few of them are now using them. Awesome!!!!!!!!

    King Woody and I TOTALLY need this for our walks everyday! No one likes to find dooty underfoot and this would sure solve that awkward moment of trying to wave hello only to have someone think you’re going to throw a bag of poop at them!

    It would be so nice to not do the dog poop walk of shame. I live on Main St in my town so everyone see’s it!

    a must for all lab owners as labs certainly poop loads

    I’m always hopeing and praying that our new chocolate doesn’t poop on our walks to drop off my daughter to school. You can imagine a 5year olds reaction to mom carrying a bag of poo.

    Would LOVE one of these! I always have a camera in one hand when walking my lab, so it’s tough to take pics AND hold a poo bag… this would be great!

    I just don’t understand how a dogs poop could smell worse when we are on a walk than it does when they poop in the yard.

    My pups seem to LOVE making their “dooty” on our long daily walk! No matter what I do to try and get them to go ahead of time, they hold it! Lol and their holding it is only 5 minutes from the beginning of the walk. I end up carrying 2 poop bags the whole entire walk, without fail! Managing their leashes to keep from them and me getting tangled is hard enough without having to carry slippery, smelly poo bags. This would be perfect, I hope we win!
