Earth friendly doggie

Next weekend, B and I are moving into a house with out a yard. This is an issue because we own two fairly large dogs who are used to a fence and an area to play. The dogs are also used to having a regular area to poop. Yes, I said it...poop. If you have a dog, you know what I mean. If you have a big dog, you really know what I mean. Dogs like structure and they form habits, much like people. Where you do your business is important for all of us (don't shake your head, you know it's true). Anyway, I'm going to need to purchase a few supplies to make this transition easier. This is a very real part of being a dog owner so if you don't like it, stick w/a cat.

Some dog waste bags perhaps?
Biodegradable Dog Waste Bags $6
source: Earthdoggy {via Barkability check this blog out!}

Dispensers so you don't have to walk w/a stinky bag and get funny looks from runners and cyclists (been there done that).
Dog waste dispenser w/biodegradable bags $12

Fun dog leashes to motivate me to walk more... not that I'm going to have a choice.
Deauville Dog Leash $22 (made w/100% certified recycled plastic)And don't forget the treats for when they behave!
All Natural Dog Biscuits $12

source (all products): Earthdoggy
Now if those dog biscuits only had some sedatives in them, they'd be perfect (I mean, earth friendly, of course:)

Oooh, love the biodegradeable poop bags. Our girls love to poop in "poop alley" makes them very happy.

I know exact;y what you are taking about. I have two black lab mixes. Your words definitely made me laugh.Love those dispensers!

I know exactly what you mean. I buy my poop bags from dogpoopbags.com which are bio friendly and you can buy a roll of 500 for $18.99 or a roll of 1000 for $33.00.

I am moving to a new place with a yard, and I worry that my pup will be all strange when we finally move....anyway...

the leashes are very nice and cheery!!

Those leashes are so cute! And yes, I totally know what you mean about the p word.

I love this post and I know where you're coming from. My b/f and I have a chocolate lab who is high on energy and sometimes just needs to be sent outside to burn it off [even after trips to the dog park]. I don't know what we'd do without a yard. Good luck with the move!
