If your backyard is starting to look like a minefield of dog poop, you’re going to need something a little stronger than a shovel. Something with power. Something like the Pooch Power Shovel. This device is basically a dog poop sucking vacuum on a stick.
You open it up, thread a bag through the nozzle, and suck up some dog business. The “good stuff” goes neatly into the biodegrable bag, which you can change without getting your hands dirty. No need to bend down or scoop either; just push the button and the rechargeable battery does the work for you. SkyMall has the Pooch Power Shovel on sale for $79.99 (plus check out my coupon codes below for more discounts). There’s also a video of this thing in action if you click through (watch for the awkwardly hilarious Dad/son high five at the end).
