To encourage dog owners who care to pick up everywhere, we are delighted to be partnering with Dicky Bag which makes taking responsibility and picking up after your dog even easier.

With a pocket for fresh bags and a lightweight design; it’s a soft, robust, airtight, machine washable neoprene bin with a Velcro wrap, a karabiner and a belt loop.
