One of the most exciting bags to have hit the world's pavements.

Put your €0.50 into a Gassi dispenser in Austria, and out drops this little cardboard package. (If you're lucky, out drop two of them.)

It opens up to reveal a sturdy plastic bag. Tear off the built-in cardboard scraper to shovel your pet's shit off the sidewalk and into the bag.

There's a series of six helpful diagrams to show you exactly how to do this.

This bag from Hamburg has entire essay to persuade dog-owners on the virtues and responsibilities of cleaning up after their furry friends.

Generic (Kingston, UK)

A generic dogshit bag? How low is it possible for a collector to stoop? Pretty low: right down to ground level in order to bring you the full variation of the bags used to pick up dogshit around the globe.

This nameless black number comes from a park in Kingston, UK.

Generic (near Hampton Court, London)

Evidently not from Henry VIII's Hampton Court Palace itself, but from quite close by.

The cartoon shows a happy canine using a shovel to dump do-do into a paper bag. Reality is different: the three diagrams show how to use human hands, not a hygienic shovel, to dispose of your pooch's poo.
