Are you Worried about the Two Poo Bag fine?

Brand dooup has the answer…

The dooup walk-ease is now available, and just as the fine for being caught without at least two poo bags may be coming into play near you.
So far, the feedback has been great from those who have purchased but we are also interested in hearing from anyone who may feel it’s not ideal for their dog walk.


We’ve thoroughly tested the concept for the short and long walk. From the perspective of the leisurely walker, through to the busy working mum, and the active, trendy chaps amongst you.

The important thing about this product is that you won’t even know you’re carrying it. You especially won’t feel conscious of carrying a scoop! The roll of bags inside are conveniently positioned so you can grab one without even needing to open the bag! So, the two poo bag rule will never be a problem for The dooup walk-ease owner!

This comfy and discreet chest/shoulder bag attaches to the lead and is ready to leave the house when you are. Packed with treats, hygiene pouch (including a reminder tag), sanitiser and some with a ball thrower and a torch which is well positioned for those darker nights. This means you are always equipped with what you need. It even allows you to let go of your dog’s lead if you wish to.


We’ve already made a success of the garden dooup which was voted Best for the Garden by Dogs Today magazine. The majority who have one love how it sanitises and stores a week’s worth of dog waste before auto sealing the bag upon removal. Simple, hygienic and convenient for the home.

Many assumed we’d do something similar for the dog walk but when you consider the needs of the dog walker, it’s far more important to provide benefits such as a hands-free walk, easy, compact scoop and a place to store the waste if you need one. The poo part ends there but the benefits of The dooup walk-ease will mean you’ll never be caught without poo bags.

These fines, perhaps necessary, are rather harsh as we all know there are days we forget things. The dooup walk-ease means that can never happen to you.

We’d love to hear from you – any suggestions about what to add, takeaway, or just general observations on how The dooup walk-ease would or wouldn’t fit into your doggie life, would be much appreciated.

Some have already expressed the need for a longer scoop which we can provide should you wish to try it. However, we have fully tested the current small scoop and found they are not only extremely effective with variations of waste size and consistency, they also fit very nicely and discretely inside the poo pouch, so we would urge you trial it. There may be no need to carry anything bigger.


Love is giving a dooup this Valentine’s Day!

In the UK

12% of dog and cat owners will buy gifts and cards for their pets
19% of people will spend the same amount on their pet as their partner
The average Valentine’s gift will cost £23

Americans will spend at least $800 million on gifts for their dogs this V day and meanwhile, the only gifts they’ll receive back will be the kind one doesn’t really want to see or smell!


Of course, the benefits of owning a dog far outweighs the one downside but why not make it easier for loved ones receiving these rather unpleasant gifts every day? Dog waste is often left in the garden that’s used to dine and lounge in and a place where children play! The dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer is the ultimate in thoughtful gifts. It’s practical and it says ‘I’m thinking of you and sparing you an awful job’. And you’ll be spreading that love across the environment by preventing the spread of the 23 million bacteria contained in dog waste that affects our aquatic life and waterways.

And, let’s face it, nothing quite says ‘I do’ like a dooup! It says ‘I’m committed to you and your dog’! So, if there’s anyone out there wanting to make a big impact when they pop the question to their dog loving lover…buy a dooup, video your other half receiving it, along with a romantic proposal of marriage and post it on our FB page and we will not only refund you the cost including shipping, we will provide you with a large refill pack too, so that you’re kitted out for the whole year. That way, you can focus on the ever-important wedding costs. Don’t worry, we won’t expect an invite.

Such a unique marriage proposal cannot fail to go viral! However, we won’t hold our breath that anyone will post such a video…we’ll leave the holding of the breath to those of you still sporting an old-fashioned scoop or shovel!

If you don’t think you’re old fashioned…consider the difference between the old-style chamber pot and how one would have to physically transfer one’s waste. Now we simply flush it away so effortlessly. Now think about how you deal with the waste from your dog in the garden. Then watch our short video here to see how things have progressed!

This Valentine’s Day, ‘If it doesn’t make you smile, change it’!

Dog Food equals Dog Poo


Dog food and dog poo go hand in hand – this is fact!
Food is a constant consideration for all dog owners and of course, puppy food is a whole different consideration. Puppies grow 20 times faster than adult dogs and therefore require a special diet to aid their physical development.

When considering puppy food, specially formulated growth food is recommended which needs to be provided at evenly spaced intervals to avoid over stretching their small stomachs. The usual procedure is to feed your puppy four meals per day up until the age of four months. Reduce the feed to three meals per day until it is six months old when you can reduce to two meals per day for the rest of its life.

What goes in, must come out!
The stage of your dog’s life and what they eat will of course determine what comes out. It’s important to keep the garden clear and clean from all dog waste, to reduce the chance of spreading the bacteria and parasites into the home. Many puppies are born with worms, and therefore their waste must be cleared with extra care. We advise The dooup because it clears while spraying the affected area and the scoop inside. The dooup can store up to 10 days’ worth of puppy waste, so it will save bags and time, as well as leaving the garden hygienically clean for all to use.

If children are using the garden too, you will need to be careful that they don’t come into contact with the waste as there is a chance they will be affected with toxicariasis which is what happened to toddler Aimee Langdon below. As a result, she lost the sight in one eye.

Dog Food…too many options?
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to dog food, so it is often difficult to know which one to buy. There is a huge range of dry complete foods on the market and the quality varies. Try to choose a food specially designed for them and suits your budget. The ‘premium’ dry foods tend to have the best quality ingredients. Many are based on chicken and rice or corn.

With semi-moist and tinned foods, choose a good quality food with an easily digestible recipe. For example, chicken and rice. Ensure it is nutritionally complete and doesn’t require additional foods.

To make home-made dog food, it can be very difficult to get a balance right. It’s a good idea to choose from a tried and tested commercial diet that fits in with your daily schedule.

Dog treats are also in abundance, and range in quality. Some of the commercial treats have far too much sugar, colourings and milk products in them. Even doggy chocs or low fat yogurt drops often contain sugars or lactose (milk sugar). Always check the ingredients.

Remember, if you are regularly feeding your dog treats, reduce the amount in their meals so as to avoid over feeding.

So…about that dog poo
Puppy poo is often soft or runny, but with time and good diet this will improve. The dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer works well in the garden to clear and sanitise the area after your puppy has been. It works best on grass to remove soft or runny waste. Push the lever several times and re-position to achieve maximum clearance and sanitation.

If soft or runny stools continue from your adult dog, it may be that his or her digestive system is slightly strained due to intense exercise, different food, noise or other factors. It is sometimes a good idea to stop the food for 12 to 24 hours. Resume, then feed half the usual amount the next day to ease their system..

Feeding your dog pure pumpkin (not pie) can work as a healthy treat as it contains dietary fibre to sooth the system, absorb moisture and firm the stool. Add around 1 to 2 teaspoons for a small dog and 1 to 2 tablespoons for a large dog to the main meal.

Consider changing the dog food. Show an ingredient label from your current kibble or canned food to your vet and he/she may suggest another type of food without corn or grains. Corn and grains can add bulk and this can lead to softening the stools. Keeping things simple, such as fish and sweet potato are really beneficial for chronic stool problems.

We hope this helps. We know only know a little about dog food but we know lots about dog poo and how best to clear and sanitise your garden with ease and hygiene. The dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer is contact-less, easy and offers a hygienic way to keep your garden clear and clean. It also saves you bags and time. Take a look at it in action here


The dooup on the shores on Necker Island

The creation of each and every dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer is bound for a rather unpleasant job. The nature of these pooper scoopers are to scoop the poop, so not the most glamourous of positions. However, if you were to come back as a dooup, you would definitely choose to be one of the ten very lucky dooups that were shipped to the luxurious Necker Island to deal with the Gecko waste that apparently pollute these glam shores. Sunning themselves with the celebs, these dooups may just become famous too. That’s the hope at the dooup HQs anyway!


#Richard Branson’s 74-acre #Necker Island is one of the few places in the world that the rare gecko – Virgin Islands dwarf gecko, lives. However, we do know that the manager of the Island has a dog, so perhaps the dooups are also finding their purpose in clearing doggy doo too.

The dooup CPWC is in fact the only pooper scooper in the world that sprays environmentally friendly sanitising fluid while clearing away animal waste! It also stores multiple amounts of waste before the bag inside seals it away upon removal of the storage chamber.

For slightly sticky waste like a Gecko’s waste would be, the user would need to push the lever a few extra times to disperse more spray to help lift all of the waste, perhaps repositioning each time to get 100% clearance. We know that with good practice and applying the right technique for the right terrain and waste consistency, the dooup is the best pooper scooper available.

Who knew the dooup would become a Gecko poop buster!?

So these dooups are at home in an island where people spend US$2,167 per day to stay – they are definitely the luckiest pooper scoopers in the world. And of course, the team at dooup HQ would be happy to fly out and help clear Gecko waste, if any assistance was ever required.


How to Deal with Dog Odour this Summer

Summer has arrived with a serious heatwave, so we need to get cracking with making sure we keep on top of the smells that bacteria can cause and is often brought about from our furry friends. It can be a surprise to some that odour is caused by bacteria, so it is essential that we spread the word to keep things clean in the home environment if we want to enjoy a summer of fresh flower and barbecue smells, and not the sweaty, poopy type smells. So here is a few tips to keep your dogs free from bacteria and therefore odour.


Baby wipes are great for wiping down your dog’s fur and will work to gently cleanse, condition and deodorise. They’re also a bonus to have around when your pooch’s paws are a tad muddy after that long walk in the forest.

Use baking soda or corn-starch as a dry shampoo for your dog – it works to remove the sweat in the summertime. Corn starch or baby powder work well and can stop an itch associated with hot spots and dry skin. Lavender is another natural deodoriser that works to keep the fur friendly. Try mixing with some water, in a spray bottle to make a lightly scented doggie deodorising spray for on the go.

Add some fruits and vegetables to your dog’s diet as this can help with bad breath. Try mixing with some dry dog food.

And for the obvious, everyday issue of dealing with their dog poo, The dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer is the best choice for the garden. It clears and sprays the affected area, keeping it free from bacteria and parasites, and also stores around a weeks’ worth of waste before the bag inside automatically seals it away upon removal. If you have kids, it’s ‘a must’ as it will protect them from the 23 million bacteria that is contained in dog waste.
