Our own brand exo biodegardable dog poo bags are great value for money, large….no dog is too big for our bags, green, environmentally friendly meeting ISO European standard in biodegradability and 15 micron thick, that means you will never have a nasty poo bag accident with these bags.

Be kind to the environment and use our 100% biodegradable poop scoop bags to clear up your dogs mess. These Quality Degradable Vest Type Poop Scoop bags with easy to tie handles are just what both you and your dog need.

We should all consider the environment when it comes to the use of plastic bags.

That is why we must make the change and use 100% biodegradable poop bags. The great thing about these bags is the quality is just the same, the price is great and you are doing your bit for the environment.

Amazing poem about Dog Poo written and sent to us by one of customers Julie and her gorgeous dog Harvey (pictured below).  Thank you so much. xx

Dog Poo

harveyI know it sounds disgusting, but its a thing you have to do
If you live with mans best fri…end you have to pick up poo!
They come in different sizes, thats the poo’s not the dogs
Thats why I chose a little pooch, I don’t want to pick up logs!

Now if my fury friend goes to toilet in the garden,
I tend to get sense of joy, if I find a harden
Because picking up the soft ones is really quite a task
Especially if the lawn needs mowing, your bag fills up with grass!

I like to try and keep my lawn, tidy, short and trim,
I can then spot poo’s a mile off and get them bin.
Autumn makes things tricky when the leaves fall to the ground.
Its like playing spot the poo in the different shades of brown!

Now if your doggy likes to run to do his poop in peace,
Finding it to pick it up is frustrating to say the least.
In the winters frosty air, its not so difficult as it seems,
The poop will show you where it is, just look out for the steam.

I get in quite a pickle if my dog poops in a place,
Where other dogs have done their business, a dilemma I must face.
Poop Identification, is it mines, or is it not,
But I know if I get the right one, as I grab it, its still hot!

Now the most important thing of all, is if you own a dog,
When they go to toilet, poop scooping is your job.
Don’t ignore the doggy mess, it may end up on someones shoe,
Make sure you always pick it up, the responsibility is down to you!

Poo bags I’ve tried a plenty, most break or are too small,
Most not eco friendly, I must have tried them all.
Nappy bags and tissues, I’ve put them to the test,
But I can happily recommend, Scot-Petshops they’re the best!

 Inspired buy looking for poos in the leaves on Sunday and that I like Exo Biodegradable Poop Bags!


 

A Few More Customer reviews:

Cheapest Poo bags I could find, great for big and small poos alike, Biodegradable too !!

I BOUGHT THE BAGS TO TRY THEM OUT.AS I WAS USING MEDIUM FOOD BAGS,WHICH WERE NOT BIO FROM YOUR LOCAL BIG STORES.
I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE BAGS.
THEY ARE A GOOD SIZE+THE COST OF THEM, I THOUGHT WAS VERY GOOD.
I WILL BE BUYING MORE IN THE FUTURE.

Great to have biodegradable baggies, good size and very good value for money. I don’t use anything else!

These are the best priced bio-degradable poop bags I have found on the net. They are great quality, with very speedy delivery and so I will definitely buy them again.

These are great – they feel stronger than most poo bags, so you don’t feel in danger of the bag splitting and a nasty accident occurring! They tie easily, the handles don’t break, and the fact that they’re degradable means guilt-free use. Excellent.

They are good value for money and biodegradable, what more do you want? They open easily and don’t take up too much space. I would buy them again and have recommended them to several people!

These are great – a good size, and they feel strong, unlike some which make me feel that I should use 2 bags when scooping just in case one breaks!

As I try to be environmentally conscious, I really like the biodegradability factor. Less guilt is good.

I like the colour too – it’s nice and obvious for when I leave the bag hidden by a tree while I go round the walk – I’ve never forgotten to pick it up on the way back! Is it bad to admit to doing that?


 

Garden Mammal Homes For Your Garden

We have just introduced a lovely range of garden mammal homes to our wildlife range.  With lots of house building and construction in rural area and the expansion of towns and cities into our green areas many small mammals are loosing their natural habitat and homes.  However we can do our bit by sharing our gardens with these beautiful creatures by introducing  safe havens for dormice, hedgehogs, mice, voles and shrews.

It is wonderful to see your garden come to life with these beautiful mammals that can be found in all areas even if you live in a city or town.  By attracting and encouraging wildlife into your garden both yourself, family and children can learn about a wide range of wild creates in a sage yet exciting environment.

Car Booster Seat

When we first decided to stock the Trixie Booster Seat we did not realise how big a hit is was going to be. As the owner of a large dog who just needs a big car seat cover it it not something we had really thought much about. However, once stocked we began to understand how good these seats actually are for our small furry friends. The seat provides a cosy comfortable bed for your small dog and most importantly you can attach the small lead within the seat to your dogs harness to ensure the safety of your dog whist travelling. The Trixie Booster Seat will hold dogs up to a weight of 9 kg it is height adjustable to give your dog a view out of the window and fresh air with a window vent during your journey. If on holiday the Booster doubles up as a bed for the night in your hotel, lodge or caravan. We have also newly introduced the Kurgo Booster Seat and Kurgo Stowe Booster Seat which can hold small dogs up to 13 kg in weight.

Bike Distance Keeper For Dogs

We have been selling the Trixie Bike Distance Keeper for many years, we have to count it amongst one of our best selling items of 2012 and 2013. The bike distance keeper comes in both a standard and deluxe version and is suitable for bikes and wheelchairs and is a great way for keeping fit and cycling with your dog. We had a customer purchase the Deluxe Bike Distace Keeper for her wheelchair, this is what she had to say about the product:

Just wanted to tell you how delighted I am with my order. It means that I can “walk” my dogs from ther offroad wheelchair I sent you a picture of. The bracket fitted the thick frame so long as I left the soft plastic paintwork protector piece off – not bothered about paintwork as I spent a lot of time offroading in mud and all sorts! The quick release attachment makes getting through my garden gate possible – I just reattach the bar and dog once in the park. My MS is now more bearable knowing my dogs are happy.

  

This was great to hear and gives us confidence in recommending in the future for wheelchair users.


 

Trixie Walker Dog BootsCustomer Review

A month ago I ordered two pairs of your Walker boots for my Westie for use on the West Highland Way. I’m mailing to let you know that Dougal completed the walk, 97 miles in 8 days on 19 May. His paws were in perfect condition, I cant say the same for the boots! but they did the job! Dougal is 12, has done the walk 6 times, always wearing some type of boots, and this is the first time he has finished with no blisters or damage to his pads.The boots were excellent! I would add that I wrapped insulation tape round the boots were the velcro fastening is, just as a bit of reinforcement.

Thank you so much for your review of the Trixie Walker Professional Dog Boots.

We offer an extensive range of dog boots and socks at Scot-Petshop, boots or socks to help protect and aid with the healing of injured paws, boots to help protect the paws of elderly or infirm dogs, socks to aid dogs at home slipping on wood or laminate flooring or boot and socks for dogs out on an adventure or expedition, hillwalking or climbing a mountain in the sunshine or snow.

Dog Car Harness / Seat Belt & Walking Harness

An unrestrained pet can cause distraction whilst driving, both you or your pet could also be seriously injured if you are involved in an accident. Always ensure your pet is safely secured in a seatbelt harness.

At Scot-Petshop, you will find dog seatbelt harnesses in small, medium, large, and extra large. A safety harness that attaches to the seatbelt is best. It should go around the dog’s chest, back, and shoulders and be attached to the car’s seatbelt, which is fastened. Some of the car harness in our shop can also double up as a dog walking harness making it practical for you to go from the car to dog walking effortlessly.

Before buying a harness, always make sure that the harness is suitable for use in a car. This is clearly detailed in our shop listings.
