GoGo Stik June 30, 2015 review from Kay L. “Absolutely Brilliant…My dog approves!”

5 – Absolutely brilliant.
By Kay L. June 30, 2015, Verified Amazon Purchase

I walk my dog daily, and have been doing so for the past 5 years. I have been meaning to find some sort of a “pooper scooper” for quite some time now, and I’m glad I landed on the GoGo Stik. The design is so simple, yet complex in its entirety. I was stoked to see that it came with sample bags designed for the unit. The bag installation is very easy and secure. I may purchase more of the Dootie Bags, mainly because they’ve got a great name. Yet, I’m also glad that I can use other bags in the mean time, like plastic grocery bags. The GoGo Stik is very light and easy to carry around, even on a 30 minute walk. It’s long enough to keep the smell of the poo away from your nose, which is a problem of mine. The smell always gets to me. Anyway, every dog owner should have a GoGo Stik, whether you need it on walks or just need to clean up the back yard. My dog approves!

Our Story – GoGo Stik The Totally Clean Dual-Edged Super Scoop!

You may ask where did this design come from?  Good question.  It actually evolved over a number of years of trial and error  with the help of my favorite buddies.  Further, if it wasn’t for them, the product simply wouldn’t exist.  You couldn’t ask for a more dedicated group of reliable workers.  This team works for food (and love of course) and is ready for dootie every day!!! But, there’s more to our story…

Our Story – GOGO STIK – The Totally Clean Dual-Edge Super Scoop…

My wife Cindy is a surviving cancer patient. She’s been in the remission stage for eight years now. After the ordeal with an operation and chemo treatments, she decided that she wanted a special companion (other than me!?) to go on walks with. Cindy had in mind a cute little pooch who now goes by the name of Mr. Brooklyn and has indeed become a special companion to the whole family. Shortly after, Mr. Papi came to us followed by Miss Genie! In addition, we have Kyle, a pooch from one of my daughters means we now are hosts of four new kids!

Of course, with that, came another huge responsibility! I gave myself another daily job or outdoor cleanup task. But, somehow this task led me to finding a better “mouse trap” or cleaning tool that I found to assuage the dreadful thoughts of doing the everyday cleanup!  I tried a number of the leading pooper scoopers and contraptions but could not find one that would meet my expectations.  All had limitations.  Many required additional cleaning of the device after being used and if I neglected to clean them for a week or so, I found that the plastic would actually break when I tried scraping them clean. Some had springs and parts that rusted when left outside. I really wanted the Ultimate Scooper not a Picker!

I needed and wanted only one device that I could use for both the yard cleanup and for walks. It also had to stay clean. It had to be able to Scoop in the grass and snow and on a flat road surface. It needed to work with any texture poo in all weather. It had to use most any store bag that we had tons of. It had to be simple, quick and easy. It had to be very light, well balanced, strong and durable. I didn’t want to carry multiple bags on our walks, continually have to bend down, and worst of all, periodically getting my hands into it (YUCK!!) especially in the dark winter months after work!

After numerous design revisions, numerous prototypes and everyday testing with the Development Team, GoGo Stik The Totally Clean Dual-Edged Super Scoop was born! Why the name GoGo Stik? Well, why shouldn’t this task be a little fun? It’s easier and more fun than an adult PoGo Stick! Interest in the new GoGo Stik from a number of people led us to seek a patent. Not too long after, it was issued a utility patent from the US patent and trademark office

We soon became acquainted with a very special dog lover who happens to be perhaps the most talented artist in Central NY.  Jerry Russell has given GoGo Stik a special dimension and a presence with the work he has done with our logos, packaging and our website.  We should mention that our mascot pooch on our logos and website is named “Dexter” in tribute to a very special friend of Jerry’s and his wife Becky.  Dexter passed after living a very short but wonderful life.  He was adopted from a shelter as a pup and shortly thereafter battled with a cancer that left him with 3 legs, until his last days.  Thank you Jerry – and Dexter.

GoGo Stik – The Totally Clean Dual-Edge Super Scoop was formally released at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando on March 5th, 2014 and has found its way around the world with thousands of delighted users.  One of the great things about GoGo Stik is that this tool offers so much flexibility in the way it can be used.  You can grow with it.  The more you use it, the better and faster you get with it!

Because of the numerous requests from GoGo Stik users around the country, we will be introducing a new trend setting model for walking (and “Catching”) that will be hopefully available in late 2015.

We thank all GoGo Stik users for contributing in making this tool an up and coming new standard in pet waste cleanup. As our mission statement, we are totally committed to this product and stand behind it 100%. Customer satisfaction is first. Our goal is to provide the finest pet waste scoop tool available and make waste cleanup misery a thing of the past!

Please keep your comments coming!

Happy Scoopin’ & Catchin’!

GoGo Stik used to collect urine samples…

Yet another great use for GoGo Stik.  Urine sample collection.  This was just recently done by a CNY GoGo Stik user over the 2013-2014 winter!  Due to a urinary infection, Joe G. was asked to produce three days of urine samples by his hound’s Veterinarian.  He wondered how he was ever going to get this done especially in the snow.  It turned out to be a snap when he thought of using the GoGo Stik to do the job.  He merely loaded a Zip Lock bag onto the GoGo Stik for a quick clean solution to the problem.

See the Youtube video of how easy it is to load a Zip Lock bag!  This could really come in handy for you someday!  GoGo Stik as Urine Collector
