I owned one of these and it lasted three years. Great product, far better than just the "scoop" - No touch and throw the bag away, works well with store plastic bags. It finally broke and I replaced it. The replacement broke in less than 6 months? It is not carried in the chain pet stores where I originally purchased it and the second one came from Amazon. Obviously not the fault of Amazon. I am ordering again because I really like it and hope that it is not being made poorly now, resulting in my recent experience and not available in stores? It is far more expensive than the others but worth it if you can get longer service out of it.

I purchased this product thinking it may work better for me considering I am in a wheelchair and need to clean up after my service dog. I took a chance and coughed up the $60 for it. The product is a good quality product I will give it that all be it kind of heavy and bulky. When I received it, I got a packaging slip on the box from the company that the seller purchased it from for $39 dollars with free shipping. Mind you I paid for my shipping (I'm a Prime Member). I contacted the original company from which the seller purchased it from only to find out they have some in stock for the lesser price.

While I have no problem with a business making a profit, there is a difference between profit and price gauge! I even figured that given my disability and the cost of the item, WHEN this one breaks I WAS willing to purchase another one..... Now after reading the reply the seller left me, it managed to completely change my mind. Way to go and turn off a customer. Word of mouth is your best advertiser and considering how much shopping I do on Amazon and how often I refer friends to specific items, this one will be wont be one of them.

The seller felt the need to give me a dissertation on profits, economy, business operations and that it is costly for him to sell on Amazon because it eats into his profit margin. So if you don't mind paying the increased cost for an item that the seller sells on three different sites for 3 varying amounts, then go for it. Personally as a loyal Prime member I will NEVER do business with this seller again.

I can't imagine ever using a different scoop. It doesn't get any easier than this. This is the cleanest way to clean a yard. It just uses those plastic grocery bags and you never have to touch a thing. It is worth every penny. Have had one for ourselves for about 4 years. Had to get one for our daughter when she got a dog.

Buyer beware. This product is very cheaply made. On first use it was very difficult for a young active woman to squeeze the handle and it would only reopen partway when handle was released making it difficult to use and then the inside cable must have snapped because it was rendered useless and stopped opening at all. The plastic seems very flimsy and before it broke it still only picked up parts of the mess and once the bag had any weight to it it slid out and fell on the ground. I ended up with more poop on me trying to clean up after this awful product than if I did it the old fashioned way. The seller was quick to respond and offer replacement but after seeing the quality I'm sure it would only be a matter of time before a new one broke, and it was an inconvenient design regardless if the cable remained in tact or not. The YouTube video shows someone scooping tennis balls with this. Also when offering a replacement the seller said they were "familiar with this issue" as in the same break occurs often- not exactly a good sign...If only poop were the shape and consistency of tennis balls this might have been a good product. ..

Considering theirs nothing else like it that I can find, I love it. My first one lasted about 5 years before it broke, and I immediately bought a 2nd one. But it could be better: It would be nice if the claw would close more when you pull the handle, it's like it falls about 1" short of closing all the way and I feel like It would do a better job at picking up the doo-doo if it closed more. Also, the part that holds the bag on, over just about a year, it gets weak and doens't hold the bag on too well.

I typically don't use it myself but the wife thinks there's too much monkeying around with the bags and kind of prefers the traditional jaw type scoop she's been using (i.e. she carries the bag and just uses a basic jaw scoop to pick up the doo). We've only had it a few months so this might change when spring gets here..........

Being that I am 7 months pregnant and can't bend over to pick up doggie messes anymore, I HAD to find the ultimate solution... NOT just that but my husband is NOT able to stomach cleaning up after the dogs, yet, I was going out of town for three weeks for baby showers and he was left on Poop Duty to fend for himself. So I needed a miracle.
Miracle = Poop Hound! Amazing! It keeps him far enough away from the turds to where he doesn't have to smell it which is the main issue for him. NOW my husband will gladly take the dogs on their walks and even picks up what other dog owners do not pick up or "forget" ;/
All we need now is to get a "Baby Poop Hound" and we are SET!
Definitely without 1 doubt get this tool!
