We were recently among the lucky winners of a box of 120 Earth Rated lavender-scented poop bags from Dogsized! Yay! I can never have enough poop bags on hand (or paw!) since I’m a professional dog walker on top of being a proud doggie mommy to my pups Missy & Buzz.
Extra Wide & Extra Strong
The poop bags we received are the ones with an extra wide opening and handles. They measure 13.5″ by 7″, and can easily be pulled out of their dispensing-box through an opening in the back (these particular poop bags don’t come on rolls).
Side note: The wide opening makes these poop bags a great option for cat litter cleaning duty as well! I’ve used them for that very purpose at one of my multi-pet client’s home ~ I actually picked up their pups’ poop first, then headed to their garage where the litter box is located and scooped the dirty cat litter into the same bag, no problem!
As mentioned above, we won the lavender-scented poop bags ~ I’m usually not a fan of scented dog products because I’ve found that they can be overpowering. These bags, however, are a nice exception to the rule, as they aren’t overwhelming for my nose!
The name Earth Rated already suggests the company’s dedication to our planet Earth ~ here’s how they go about it:
▪ The rolls’ cores & packaging are made of recycled material
▪ Their white-colored, vegetable based bags are 100% plastic free, meaning they will actually break down! (unlike plastic, which takes about 1000 years to decompose!!!)
▪ Any bags not passing their quality control are donated to shelters
▪ Excess production material is recycled or re-used for future production
▪ Earth Rated is a Canadian company, but has multiple warehouse locations, thus reducing their carbon footprint
Convenience of Handles
Since the arrival of the Earth Rated poop bags with HANDLES, the pups have taken on an additional job ~ that of carrying their own poop!! It’s super easy to tie their respective bags to their doggie backpacks, and it has made our walks more enjoyable for me.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
