Kansas customer review

I think I’ve tried about every kind of pick up device and this is the best of them all. It really is “no touch” and remains perfectly clean as the device itself never comes in contact with the material being picked up. I’ve used several varieties of bags including the ones that came with it and regular plastic grocery bags all with great results. If you don’t like wrapping a bag around your hand to do what needs to be done then I highly recommend this device.

on August 21, 2015

This is one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time! It has made my life so much easier! I was so sick of picking up after my two dogs multiple times a day using grocery bags and my hand. I have long nails and often the bag would puncture while I was scooping and you can imagine this was not fun!

I was searching for a solution and looking into rakes and claws and many pooper scooper options before finding the GoGo Stik. The problem with the other options was that my older dog does loose stools and I didn’t want to have to clean the rake or claw every time I used it. I also didn’t want a system that required me to buy special bags. The GoGo Stik fit the bill on all counts. The unit stays clean because it is completely covered with a bag. I can use any standard grocery bag with handle so it is economical and I can recycle my bags using them again.

The bag is easy to attach, and what is great is I use way less bags. I used to have to use a new bag per pile because it was hard to pick up multiple piles without making a mess. Now one bag is enough for our entire walk for both dogs! I just scoop and shake it down into the bottom of the bag and I’m ready to pick up the next pile. It even does a great job on the soft stuff. It scrapes it off the grass better than I could do with my bag covered hand.

The GoGo Stik is also very light and I have no trouble carrying it all around the block on our walks. I generally carry it in a way that it balances against my arm which makes it even lighter feeling. (Doesn’t hurt that I can hold it far enough away that I don’t have to smell the contents!).

So all in all I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has to pick up after a pet.

GoGo Stik review from J. Barry, Lakewood, Co.

I recently developed hip problems making it impossible to bend over to clean up after my dog. I am supposed to walk as much as possible so I needed something to help with the “job.” This works great. A lot of different bag sizes, work, even the free ones to my park. Easy to set up dispose of the waste. Stays clean.

I don’t know how I ever lived without this before! Easy to set-up and use. No more bending over with a bag on my hand for me when picking up around the yard…

Dog Duty: Laws About Owning a Dog in New York State:

Dog Duty! Laws About Owning a Dog in New York State:

Know your rights and responsibilities about owning a dog in New York.

Know your rights and responsibilities about owning a dog in New York.

The laws about dog ownership vary from state to state, municipality to municipality. In 2015 there have been several laws that relate to dog ownership in New York State (NYS). Be aware that the laws about your dog do vary from community to community. Check out some of these changes coming to NYS.

There are also a couple of bills in the capital to be aware of. Dog lovers everywhere should be celebrating these. On May 13, 2015, the NYS Senate approved a bill that now allows you to take Fido (Dexter is excited too) with you to your favorite outdoor café or restaurant (if the café permits it). There are a couple of rules that accompany this new law, your pooches cannot sit at the table top (in a seat) and the server cannot directly feed or pet your furry companion. These are the lines drawn by the food health folks.

Also, a proposed NY law if passed, will allow a civilian to break a car window to rescue a dog in extreme temperature conditions. Currently, this is only legal for law enforcement officers. NY would be the first state to pass such a law. Dog lovers the land over are celebrating!

Did You Know:

Did you know that in NYS, you are liable for injuries if you have a “beware of dog” sign posted and your dog bites someone. This sign infers that your dog is dangerous and as such, you must have control of your animal.

Also, if you DO NOT have a “beware of dog” sign, you are liable for not warning folks that you have a animal on the premises! … So what do you do? You put up a sign that says Guard Dog On Duty. This implies that a trained animal is on duty and folks should behave accordingly.

Disclaimer: These laws can vary by court of course and should not be taken as legal advice. Use your judgment when it comes to your pet care an be aware of local ordinances that may enhance or deter the laws mentioned above.  (GoGo Stik is not an attorney).

Very cool and useful tool for cleaning up after your dog

 

on July 29, 2015  Verified Purchase
Very cool little gadget for cleaning up after you dog without getting poo on your hands trying to pick up dog doo with a bag. Another great advantage of this handy thing is that you can use regular plastic store bags and don’t have to purchase special/proprietary bags. I use it to pick up poo from the entire yard at once instead of following my dog around with it and picking up just one. It can hold A LOT of dog waste, actually several pounds of it, then just undo the plastic bag from the tool, tie a knot in the bag and drop it in the trash can. Simple, easy, clean. It’s wonderful!

July 1st
Dog parents! If you’re like me, picking up the poo from your yard is one of your least favorite chores. I have tried so many poop scoopers – they either break, or don’t get the mess from longer grass, or get filthy and have to be washed.
Then, Gogostik sent me one of their scoopers to try. Yes, they have an ad in our magazine and I received a free scooper to try out – but I am not being paid to write this post. I truly LOVE this scooper and I want to share this video because I really do think it can make cleaning up your yard so much easier. It uses any size plastic grocery or pick-up bag, which keeps the actual scooper clean… and, it works awesome at cleaning poo even from our taller fescue grass, which other scoopers had a hard time with.
I sincerely wanted to share this demonstration in case you are looking for a good scooper for your own yard. It’s been super helpful with our 3 dogs and at keeping our yard clean!

Pets on Pot: Newest Customer Base for Medical Marijuana

Pets on Pot: The Newest Customer Base for Medical MarijuanaMedical Marijuana
LAURA M. HOLSON The New York Times

The Food and Drug Administration has not approved cannabis for pets, in part because there is little research showing its effectiveness. Veterinarians are not allowed to write prescriptions for the products and, in states where marijuana is illegal, are wary of discussing the idea. Last year, a proposed state law was defeated in Nevada that would have made it possible for veterinarians to prescribe cannabis to pets with chronic illnesses. Still, users swear by the products.

One-third of Dog Owners Visit a Dog Park

One-third of Dog Owners Visit a Dog Park

Survey Says! …

One-third of Dog Owners Take Their Pooch to a Dog Park
Are you one of the one-third?

Let the puppies play! In the past year, 33% of dog owners have taken their pet to a dog-specific park. The frequency of going to a dog park is the same regardless of the number of dogs owned. However, considerably more owners in the Northeast go to dog parks than owners in other regions (39% compared to 30% in the North Central region, which reports having fewer dog parks in general compared to other regions). Owners with large or medium size dogs are more likely to go to a dog park than owners of small dogs. Interestingly, almost half of all Gen Y dog owners (born between 1980-1994) go to a dog park with their pet, while Builder dog owners (born between 1925-1945) are far less likely to go to such a park (47% compared to 16%).

Dexter’s – Did you know? Wolves, Dogs, & Humans

A recent study in the research journal Current Biology confirms that dogs realize when they are being treated unequally to their peers. This finding deepens our insight into how a dog’s brain works and suggests that dogs and humans share behavioral traits.

At the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, pairs of ten dogs and nine wolves were subjected to reward tests. If one dog consistently received a piece of meat as its reward and its partner consistently received plain old dog food, the partner became less motivated to participate in the reward test — in a sense its own form of protest.

This inequity awareness, or knowledge of being treated unfairly, is a trait shared by humans, monkeys, and other non-human primates. It is important for understanding human behavior. This study has found that dogs and wolves also possess inequity awareness, which cannot be said to exist for other animals. This suggests that dogs and primates share characteristic thinking and feeling processes.

Because this study found that both dogs and wolves possessed inequity awareness, it is likely that this trait was not learned through domestication of the wolf to the modern pet dog. This implies that there may have been an older ancestor of both the modern pet dog and of the wolf that developed this inequity awareness. It is possible that dogs and humans share this common ancestor?

GoGo Stik as a Urine Sample Collector for your Doggie

Use the stick to collect pee sample from your doggie. We have to get a pee sample for the vet, and it used to be ridiculously difficult. Imagine walking around your dog with a dish, cup or whatever. Then when he pees, you suddenly place it under him? He freaks, stops and you are bent over waiting. Opportunity lost. That happened all the time.
With your product, our lives had changed. We simply put it under him as he pees and we get a great sample and he is not disturbed while he pees so we are all happy!

GoGo Stik – DISABLED PEOPLE NEED THIS PRODUCT !!!

By E.W.on May 2, 2017
I am a disabled veteran in a wheelchair. I recently received a Service dog and was at a loss as to how I would clean up after him. I no longer have the hand strength or dexterity to use traditional scoopers with jaws. I can’t squeeze them open. I finally found this product and it is amazing. And since I can’t bend over due to the wheelchair and my brain injury, the extension handle allows me to easily reach and scoop up my dog’s messes. Trust me, you need this product!

Very helpful, my kids definitely prefer this method

Very helpful, my kids definitely prefer this method. Before they had a garden trowel and it was back breaking, but this tool is clean and the length keeps them from having to bend over.

Special Report: Unwanted dogs dumped in South Florida

MIAMI-DADE, Fla. —
Justin Wagner is a one man rescue, saving homeless and stray dogs in Miami-Dade County.
https://www.facebook.com/justin.wagner.790
Wagner told WPBF 25 News’ Tiffany Kenney that the Redlands, between Homestead and the Everglades, has become a known dumping ground for dogs.

Wagner, alone, has rescued more than 50 stray dogs. He told Kenney, “I’ve seen dogs tied to a crate out in the middle of nowhere, hoping someone is going to find them. That’s not how you get rid of a dog. It’s nothing I’ve ever seen. It’s like a third world country, Wagner said.

“They have no voice. It’s not like they can tell you what hurts,” Wagner said.

In March, Michelle Wacker, with Poodle and Pooch Rescue in Orlando, headed south on a rescue mission.

“We thought we were going to be there all day to fill up our horse trailer and our six SUVS. But by 1 p.m., we had 52 dogs and we were full. The dogs we saw were starving. They had broken legs and broken hips. One was fed metal shards. One was shot in the eye, head and hind,” Wacker said.

In all, the rescue has saved more than 150 dogs from the Redlands.

“This has become a safety health issue. Someone is going to get bit and get rabies. Someone is going to get mauled. Dade County should be embarrassed by the fact that it took a group of middle-aged women to drive all the way from Orlando to take care of their problem,” Wacker said.

A spokesperson for Miami Dade Animal Services which picked up 150 strays last year in the Redlands said they have offered to assist rescue groups and they do send crews out there to investigate. They also claim there are other parts of the county that have bigger abandoned dog problems.
