    I can’t say I’ve heard of those! Do you add liquid before or after? How is it supposed to work?

    If Den poos in the garden I always bag it up and then take it to the poo bin at the end of the road.

    I've seen mixed reviews for different sorts. I would think a lot would depend on how free-draining your soil is, how large your dog is, and what you feed him. My dog is raw fed and I find the poos are much smaller and less stinky than kibble-fed dogs, and it degrades very quickly in the garden if I don't get round to picking it up. So I have wondered if it's an option.

    I'm not sure if it's more environmentally friendly than alternatives though, particularly as with some you'll have to keep buying the activators. I pick up poo in bread bags which I keep stuffed behind a bush and use a few times before putting it into the landfill bin - the bread bags aren't recyclable so they'd end up in landfill anyway.

    I just have a dedicated patch by the hedge for Harri. The poo degrades really quickly into the soil and he doesn't produce very much either. Except when I fed him Chappie when he had a dodgy tummy on holiday. I swear he produced twice what he ate. It was quite a shock!

    Hope you don't confuse the bags for brown bread @JudyN! :D:D:eek::eek: Back on topic though, I've not heard of these poo bag thingies either.
