Wise Walker gives you a place to stash that nasty bag while you finish your walk -- out of sight, out of mind, and out of your hands!
From the Manufacturer
Fun Fact 1:
We glued together our first prototypes on the kitchen table. Dozens of versions later, we finally had a product that people loved.
Fun Fact 2:
While weighing less than 2 ounces, Wise Walkers has enough space to hold up to nine large chicken eggs… as well as pocket for your keys, a cell phone some treats… whatever you like.
Fun Fact 3:
Team Wise Walker had our first business meeting in a jacuzzi while on a family vacation. The rule ever since has been that the girls get to pick where we have our meetings.
For Team Wise Walker, the great entrepreneurial jouney continues. We hope that Wise Walker makes all the small journeys you take with your dogsevery day just a little bit better.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Stop. Carrying. Poop.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We took Lola for a walk one day. Like clockwork, Lola did what dogs do(o) on a walk. No one wanted to carry around that nasty bag while we finished our walk. That lead to a discussion about what entrepreneurs do -- i.e., they solve problems. Solving the problem of carrying around that nasty bag became our mission.
What makes your product special?
First and foremost, the Wise Walker solution is simple. It does everything you would want such a product to do… without over engineering. That keeps it light weight, highly functional and easy to use.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Annalise: Visiting the sewing shop.
Sarah: Seeing the Wise Walker evolve and get better and better each time we learned something.
Bob: Working with my daughters.

1) There is no elastic band or bit of Velcro to keep closed the pocket holding the roll of bags. During my first use, I dumped out the roll, which unrolled down the street as I chased behind. I then stood there tethered to two rambunctious boxers eager to continue their walk, while I tried to rewind the roll.
2) The elastic drawstring does not stay closed.
3) With a single carabiner holding the bag to the leash, it swings wildly and, when full, distracts my dogs.
I installed this onto my leather leashes by using a hole punch the same size as the carabiner, since the carabiner was too small to accommodate the width of the leash. This no doubt allows it to swing more than it would if installed through the loop of the handle, but I like having the bag a bit further down from my hand—especially because I am managing two exuberant boxers and the leads are easily tangled. My solution to the wild swinging was to purchase two more small carabiners and punch two new holes, which allows the bag to hang from the leash more like a flag, thus stabilizing it. With a drop of fabric glue and Velcro, I have created a closure for the pocket where the new bags are kept. I replaced the drawstring slide with a locking slide, such as you would find on the drawstring of a light jacket.
Though I've solved what I view as design flaws,I've now spent another $4 per bag and when added to the original price of $18.99, my thoughts are this product is simply priced too high. Since I sew, I could have made my own bags for far less, but was enticed by the cute videos the inventors made. I wish them all the luck, but think they need to modify their design if they want to be able to charge this much for their bag. Had I not been able to easily modify them, I would have returned them.
Another update after months of waiting to hear back from the owner. I've decided to ditch this Wise Walker poop bag after coming across what I think is a better alternative. This Earth Rated bag dispenser has a clip at the back of it that will hold the poop bag for you. I have two dogs, and the clip holds two full bags just fine. It does the main job, which is to keep my hands free from holding the used bags. Being able to store my phone in the Wise Walker was just an added bonus, but it really won't even fit phones bigger than an iphone5 anyway, so I can live without it.
This Earth Rated dispenser alternative is fuss-free and also, it is only $4.

Well, one month after contacting the company for a replacement device to keep this bag closed (per the owner's message in response to my original review) another disappointment as I have not received any response at all from the owners after 3 follow ups.
So glad this family thought about making this product. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it is lightweight and seems durable. The poop bag holder is convenient, and the pocket is a perfect size to put your phone in (iphone 5 fits perfect, horizontally). The pull string makes it easy to open the bag and close it, however, my one major problem with is that it does not stay closed. The weight of my phone (or my keys) is enough to open this bag. Good thing it is deep enough that the poopy bags don't fall out. A little disappointed considering it's a little pricey for $18.00, but I'll keep using it until something better comes along.
