I often see people walking their dogs down the sidewalk in front of our house. Typically, bags are stuffed in their front or back pockets and I have seen a few fanny packs. I have to laugh at the fanny packs. I know they are convenient for people but I always think about my dad wearing one and how cool he thinks it is. Ha ha! I love my dad but it really does crack me up.
I recently had an opportunity to check out a multisak™, a FREEPLAY Dog Accessories product. It’s a great pouch-like bag that helps you keep your phone, poop bags, collapsible bowl, treats and other items all in one place when you are out walking your dog(s). It’s made to fit perfectly on retractable leashes but also works on my regular leashes, which I prefer over retractable leashes.
The multisak definitely makes it easier to walk your dog without fumbling around for your waste bags, phone and other items you want to take along for your walk.
My multisak contains my favorite EO 33oz Hand Sanitizing Spray. It fits perfectly in one of the pouches. I also added my keys, tissues, and ID, which you can’t see because it is behind the tissues. There is still room for a collapsible bowl, treats and other things I might want to bring along.
In addition to all the handy compartments to store all your “stuff”, another pouch on the back of the multisak allows you to discreetly store your Poop Bag until you get home and can throw it away.
This video shows you how convenient the multisak is and why you should think about getting one:
The multisak is $34.95 ($24.95 sale price now) and comes in a variety of colors to compliment the color of your leash. FREE SHIPPING + PoopBags roll with promo CODE 3333! Colors include: Kaki, Royal Blue, Navy, Red, Beige, Black and Orange. Your multisak comes with a FREE roll of their Biodegradable Poop Bags!
In addition to the multisak, Biodegradable Poop Bags by Earth Rated™ can be purchased in either the box of 60 rolls for $44.95 (on sale now for $39.95) or in a box of 8 rolls for $5.99. These eco-friendly waste bags are Lavender scented and dissolve in as little as 40 days.
When I was approached with the opportunity to try the multisak, I received some literature that I thought was interesting about the amount of dog waste is produced each year and wanted to share it with you.
Multiple studies have shown that around 40% of dog owners don’t clean up after their pets. With nearly 80 million dogs just in the U.S., producing 3.6 billion pounds of waste every year, that’s a lot of dog poop to step in. Resistance to cleanup comes in part from reluctance to get anywhere near dog waste, to be seen carrying it, or not wanting to be burdened with a ‘system’ for doing so when all you want at the end of a long day is to go out and have a little fun with your dog. Many dog owners believe that dog waste is biodegradable’ and therefore will simply take care of itself eventually. Yet a single gram of dog waste carries 23 million E-coli bacteria, and 95% of fecal matter found in urban watersheds is non-human.
Cleaning up after your dog is a civic responsibility that should be taken seriously — but it can also be fun and fashionable.
I love my multisakby Freeplay – it’s convenient and carries everything I need for walking my dogs.
