Anyone use bag dispensers?

    Just wondering if anyones used the dispensers for the poop bags? I've seen a few that clip onto the lead but not sure if it would just get in the way or not? At the moment, I just stick a couple in my pocket.

    I saw a lady who had one clipped onto her retriever's collar!

    I haven't tried them...I actually use scented nappy disposal bags! :p

    They are much cheaper...I buy a box of 250 bags for £1.

    I bought one a few months ago but i had trouble putting a new roll of bags in it once they had run out.
    And i found it much cheaper just to go to somewhere like the pound shop and get a box of nappy bag you get around 200/250 for about a pound :).

    I have one clipped to the handle of my lead, mainly because I would forget my head if it wasn't screwed on. :p

    This way I always have them with me...

    Well, a few times I've had to run back to house to grab some as I've forgotten so was thinking if I have the dispenser they'll always be on there. Might give one a go.

    Thanks x

    I like the idea of having one clipped to the lead.. But Dave isn't the best behaved on the lead so when he pulls the dispenser hit my hand! :(

    Maybe once he is a bit better on the lead I will try again.

    Never tried one but then I would lose my status as the poo bag queen, I have them everywhere, If I have a pocket or bag to put them in they are in it. Nothing worse than going on a night out with pals and going into your hand bag and out drops a doggy bag or two.:eek:

    Not as used one of course I might add.

    Our council gives us biodegradable ones for free and I don't really think they would fit in a dispenser :( Would make it alot easier because I only ever take 1 bag with me and Cheeko always decides to go more than once so always have to reopen the bag. I should really start carrying more with me. B&Q had the ones that clip on the lead for £1.25 last week. I don't see the point in paying for poop scoops when there free anyway.

    Yeah our shop gives out the free bags too. I have them in every pocket too!

    I have loads and loads of them in the dog's drawer of stuff my the back door, I have some by the front door, I have some in my bag, there are some in the car... They are forever going through the wash because I have left them in my pocket!

    The photography group I help out with is in a libary so every week I go I always ask for poop scoops because can never have too many. Well I don't think so but mum would tell you different as she has a drawer in her room full of them. She's banned me from asking for anymore :eek:

    I know that feeling, luckily none have ever come out a pocket while in the wash would imagine it could break the machine.

    Yip I've got mine clipped on to the extendable lead so that I always have them with me, eitherwise I kept forgetting - I have also seen the refills in the poundshop recently but can't remember if I saw the holder as well - they do smell nice.

    I've got one but tend not to use it as I seem to have poo bags in every pocket. I'e even found them in the washing machine.
