Dogs may be man’s best friend but their poop sure as heck isn’t. While there’s nothing quite like having an adorable pupper around the house, cleaning up after them whenever they leave “accidents” on the floor or in the yard can be a major hassle. Lucky for fur-parents, PooPail is around to make their job that much easier.

It’s essentially a giant trash bin with an innovative lid system and a special scooper that hopes to make poop duty easier than ever. In this PooPail review, we’re going to find out if it really is every dog owner’s dream or just an oversized wastebasket with a pretty paint job.

PooPail Overview

PooPail is the brainchild of Sandy Stinson, a proud dog lover who simply grew tired of having to pick up dog waste several times a day and walk long distances just to throw it into a garbage bin.

To make all dog owners’ lives easier, she developed a special container specifically for storing dog poop that opens with a simple flick of the wrist. And once you close the lid back up, it’s completely sealed from the outside, smell and all. It even comes with its own pooper-scooper, complete with an elongated handle to keep all the work to a minimum.

Features

Easy-open Lid

PooPail features a wide lid that opens by simply tilting the bin forward as you’re holding on to the handle. This causes the bin to lay down horizontally while the lid remains vertical, allowing you to scoop in any little “presents” your dog has left for you.

Enormous Storage Capacity

The bin can store up to four gallons of waste for up to a week, severely minimizing the trips you have to take to the dumpster every time you need to get rid of your dog’s poop. You won’t have to worry about it stinking up the place or letting in water either, since PooPail’s lid is completely sealed when closed and is both waterproof and smell-proof.

Environment Friendly

Earth-conscious fur-parents will be glad to know that PooPail’s poop bags are both compostable and biodegradable, having been certified by TÜV AUSTRIA.

Ergonomic Design

Its pail design, together with how long the scooper is, ensures that you only have to bend a minimal amount to pick up your pet’s poop. Bye-bye back pain.

Colours Galore

PooPail comes in six different colours, including green, blue, grey, purple, orange, and tan.’

Build & Design

From afar, it’d be easy to mistake the PooPail for a run-of-the-mill trash bin, given its rugged and functional design. What sets it apart is its elongated handle and the special scooper that’s latched onto the side. Its lid is also slightly wider than the mouth of the pail, allowing the contraption to seal in foul smells and to keep out any water or other substances from entering.

As for its build, PooPail is made of sturdy plastic that promises over 10 years worth of use and is completely recyclable when it has reached the end of its lifespan.
