According to the Human Society of the United States there are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs in the United States and in Australia 63% of the 7.5 million households own pets. The Australian Companion Animal Council Report shows that there are 3.41 million dogs in Down Under or in other words: 36% of the Australian households own a dog.
Dogs are cute and they are man´s best friend. But have you ever thought how to get rid of their excrements? An innovative Australian did and invented the “Dog Walker”.
It´s a new device to collect dog waste. Through rotation the excrements are carried directly in a container. This means that the invention is very hygienic, because one has no contact with the excrements.
As mentioned before unfortunately dogs are not always preparing joy – the problem with the dog excrements is the most unpleasant. In the wake of the growing dog ownership in cities and small towns, the mess problem on roadsides and in parks has become huge.
Specially build bag dispenser or warning signs are only moderately well received. Many dog owners just leave the excrements of their pets behind. On the other hand, many old people who have dogs have difficulty to bend over and collect the waste.
Help is on the way! The new “Dog Walker” permits a simple and hygienic removal of dog waste and contributes to the improvement of “land mines” on sidewalks and in parks. It is operated electrically, which means that without effort and without contact the dog waste can be transported into a container.
To operate the “Dog Walker” the user barely has to bend down, so especially for older people this device could be a great relief.
