Hi Fur-bies lovers! I just received a concern from a customer that recently ordered the GoGo Stik E-Z Clean Scoop Set. The set consists of the ST pooper scooper and the E-Z Wedge. The concern was with use of the E-Z Wedge.
The Wedge tool
should be used and viewed as a
“Wedge” and not a rake or small shovel scoop. The wedge should
actually be positioned or “Wedged” at one edge of your target poo.
Then, the scooper does the scooping. Simple as that.
Are you and Fido ready to hit the road and make some memories? Adventures with a beloved canine companion can quickly go downhill without preparation. Here’s how to ensure you and your pooch will not only have the best of times, you won’t overspend in the process.
to Ease Travel
A few well-chosen accessories can go a long
way toward ensuring you and your dog stay comfortable and safe throughout your
travels. There are bowls specially designed to collapse so meals
and storage are easy-breezy, and car seat covers to protect your vehicle from
hair, muddy paws, slobber, and any unexpected accidents.
When it comes to keeping your sidekick in his
seat, choose a restraint that is fitting for your dog’s size
and personality type. If you have a small dog who isn’t overly active, a
booster seat or safety harness could be perfect. Bigger dogs can also enjoy the
freedom and safety of a harness, and active dogs can benefit from a carrier or
For the accessories you and Fido need, stretch
your travel budget by shopping online and using offers such as Ebates
coupons and discount codes from your favorite retailers. You can
apply the funds you save toward your and your dog’s fun.
to Go, Things to Do
Strange as it is to some of us, there are
places that don’t welcome dogs. With that in mind, long before you pack Fido’s
bags, do some research to ensure you and your pooch are heading somewhere
you’ll both enjoy. And for those times you need to leave your dog alone, make
arrangements for a trustworthy pet sitter to take care of your traveling companion. It’ll
ease your mind knowing someone is tending him, rather than worrying that he’s
There are dog-friendly destinations far and
wide for nearly anything that suits your fancy. If ocean waves, sands, and
seagulls beckon, Travel + Leisure notes there are some outstanding dog-friendly beaches, such as the dog beach in
Florida’s Fort Myers, Jekyll Island Beach in Georgia, and Topsail Beach in
North Carolina. Exploring national parks can be big fun as well, but
make sure you do some checking because some are more dog-friendly than others.
More in the mood for urban adventures? Look to cities like Chicago, Seattle, or Denver.
Finding places that encourage your pooch to be himself will ensure you make the
most of every moment.
When booking lodging, make reservations with
pet-friendly hotels or vacation rentals. Websites like Expedia make it super
simple to find the accommodations you want since you can search by
pet-friendliness, and on top of that, joining their rewards
program can stretch your budget.
You might be surprised to learn you don’t need
to do all the driving when you reach your destination. You can save money by
using public transportation in many locations; just
verify restrictions before you and your pooch climb aboard, since some systems
require a carrier.
Along those same lines, it’s important to be
conscientious of other travelers throughout your journey. If you and your dog
are planning potentially muddy outings, like to a dog
park or on hiking trails, bring along a paw washing device to tidy
up before you hop into a bus, board a train, or re-enter your hotel. For
example, the Dexas Mudbuster is small, convenient, and
affordable, and you can explore their current offers
to make the most of your money.
Of course, throughout your travels, you’ll
want to clean up after your dog, so have a plan in place for dealing with
waste. An economical solution is the GoGo Stik — it’s a clean, durable, efficient
design, convenient to operate, and you can use any style bag so there is just
the one-time purchase — all topped off with a money-back guarantee.
Planning a getaway with your dog needn’t be
complex or expensive. Accessorize appropriately, make arrangements in
dog-friendly places, and grab a few gadgets to make comings and goings a
breeze. With these smart strategies, you and your best friend will have a

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
By SKM Chicago on October 9, 2015
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! 😀

CECELIA A. , from Moore, OK… Wrote: Very happy about this Pooper Scooper. I bought this over the rake pooper scooper to avoid any type of “touching” of poop or cleaning of the cleaner. With the Gogo Stik I was able to clean up my dogs remains in the apartment complex & other dogs who use the same area in a few minutes. I probably picked up about 15 remains (not all my dogs btw) in a few minutes in the grassy area. Very happy!
Do you have an emergency dog care check list? Many of you know that your family is ready, but have you stopped to think if you are ready for your pet too?
Our dogs are such important members of our families. We have been watching the news stories about the fires out west and hearing about a strong hurricane season.
This can add up to some very concerned pet owners trying to figure out how to prepare everyone in the house for an emergency. To help you do this, we have put together an emergency preparedness check list.
