dog sitting with Poochy on

How do I use Poochy?

Attach the poop bag to the clip and easily place the clip around the base of your dog’s tail when you go for a walk. When your dog is ready to poop, the droppings will fall directly into the poop bag. Once the dog is done, take the clip off his tail and press the button to toss the bag into the bin. For further details please refer to our How-To page.

How long can I leave the clip on my dog’s tail?

Poochy is so soft and creates almost no pressure, so you can leave it on for as long as your walk takes.

Does using Poochy require training?

Poochy does require training and some dogs may need a few tries to adapt. We found that within a few days of using Poochy, most dogs get excited when they see their owner reaching for Poochy, letting them know it’s time to go out for a walk.

For further details please refer to our How-To page.

Is Poochy environmentally friendly?

Our bags are approximately 80% smaller than the average poop bag, so that the amount of wasted material is reduced to a minimum. Using Poochy also means droppings never touch the ground, thereby minimizing health hazards and pollution caused by dog fecal matter.

Does Poochy work with other animals?

Poochy was designed specifically for dogs, according to dog anatomy and tail shape. It’s not designed to work or be comfortable for other animals.

What about dogs with short tails?

Poochy fits any dog with a tail 2 inches or longer.

Is Poochy safe for kids?

Yes, made of quality materials and too big to swallow, Poochy is safe for children. Please use with adult supervision.

Does using Poochy hurt? Will my dog be comfortable?

We designed Poochy with top veterinarians with the well-being of your dog as our first priority. Poochy’s soft silicone cushions fit comfortably on your dog’s tail without hurting him at all

Can my dog run, sit, play and wag his tail while wearing the device?

Absolutely, your dog can move and behave as usual.

Will my hands ever come in contact with waste?

Never. Using Poochy will keep your hands – and the ground – 100% clean at all times.

Does Poochy fit any dog breed or size?

Poochy was designed with top veterinarians to be comfortable for most breeds and sizes of dogs. It fits medium and large dogs and we are currently working on a smaller clip which will fit small dogs and dogs with very thin tails. When you order, you will be able to select the appropriate Poochy poop bag according to your dog’s size.

Does it matter if my dog is male or female?

No, Poochy works perfectly well with both male and female dogs.

Can Poochy handle diarrhea?
