What would you say is the best poop bag in the winter? My sisters and I are out every day of the year for a minimum of two walks, which means we use a lot of poop bags. Just because it is cold out doesn’t mean active dogs can leave poop lying around. We workout and pick up poop in all types of weather. I decided it was finally time to figure out which bag is the best for use in the cold and snow!
Winter causes a lot of complications when you are picking up after your dog. If you have active dogs like us all year, and live in a cold climate, you know what I’m howling about. Snow is cold, poop is warm, so it sinks right in. When the human picks it up, snow goes in the bag with the poop. The warm poop melts the snow, causing fluid to build in the bag. Depending on the temperature, the fluid will freeze and as we have found, puncture the bag making a huge mess!
When we are out and about, trash cans are not always readily available, meaning Mom may have to carry the bag with poop for a considerable amount of time. Let me tell you…if the bag springs a leak, the party is over. Mom becomes like a mean, angry grizzly bear! Her mood is ruined, and we have to hurry home immediately. If she could call 911 to get a ride home asap, she would. This leakage thing happens every year, which is why I’m now voting for the best poop bags in the winter – Earth Rated.
There are three of us dogs, so we go through a lot of bags. We’ve tried generic poop bags, bags we get in rolls at events, bags from stores, bread bags, so many bags, but none can be trusted. One day it dawned on us that the only truly “safe” bag, the bag that has never failed us, is the bag from Earth Rated!
I have no idea why they don’t tear or puncture like every other bag, but I am thankful. They also don’t get firm and crispy in the cold either. Earth Rated bags can be purchased in scented, unscented, rolls, bags, or handle bags. We always get the scented handle bags. Some days Mom manages to pack three to five “dumps” into one bag if it is early morning and we all have to do our business right off the bat. The bag may be stuffed, but no leakage!
Let’s face it, no human wants to have a bag leak out onto their gloves and clothing. Leakage itself is bad enough, but in the winter, it then freezes onto the clothing. It really makes humans mad! Do your human and yourself a favor if you live in a cold climate, get some good, sturdy Earth Rated Poop Bags before you start your winter workouts.
If you want to keep walking, or continue your workout in the great outdoors, I suggest Earth Rated bags. We hate having to cut our workout short because of a bad bag! Even the last days where it was -15 on our walks, these bags held up. My GBGV Life votes for Earth Rated as the Best Poop Bag In The Winter! This post was not sponsored by Earth Rated. These are our bags, but we wanted to let our friends know about a product we find extremely useful in our extreme winter!
