Subject: New use for the GoGo Stik!
Dear GoGo Stik,
Wanted to let you know about another application for the scooper. It has worked well in cleaning up after two dogs in the back yard for the past year, I appreciate the no-hassle cleanup. My Vet recently asked for a three day first AM urine sample from our older pet as he is diagnosing a possible kidney issue. I thought about the best way to get the sample from our short female dog and knew it would not be easy or clean.
The GoGo Stik immediately came to mind. With the addition of a zip-loc bag, I was able to get my sample by simply holding the open bag under her to catch the stream without disruption, mess, or upsetting her during her first morning tinkle. Great adaptation of a very useful tool. Kacey has been cleared of any kidney issues and we owe you a “thanks” for making our part of the diagnostic process a breeze.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver for a REVOLTING task

To preface, I have to say that am NOT a dog person, at all. I am only extremely reluctantly living with a big dog as of recent months because he was a package deal with a wonderful person. :::acquiescent sigh:::
He’s a good dog, but my goodness, the absolute revulsion at the thought of going anywhere near a warm, soft-ish, HORRID, stinky mess from an animal with only plastic between it and my hand, UGH (totally fine with human babies, side note!). But I wanted to be able to help with walks, and actually in my head thought “I wish they would make a stick with a poop bag so that the stuff would never actually touch the stick, just the bag.” I thought this for weeks until it finally struck me to check trusty Amazon – EUREKA!!
This product works pretty well and as it claims, it’s just getting the bag off can be a teensy bit tricky, but I’m sure I don’t do it 100% correctly. And you’re carrying a stick and look silly, and you’re still having to look at and deal with the excrement of an animal you’d rather have nothing to do with. So there’s that, but it’s not the stick’s fault. That being said, it’s a great tool for a disgusting task that you begrudgingly do for the comfort of the animal that your partner adores.
If you’re looking at this product and this review, you may be in the same boat, so I wanted to be candid. And honestly, venting has been a bit cathartic, so thanks Amazon! 😀
