Bought it to pick up gravel from the bottom of the fish tank and it works great so I’m sure would be 5***** for dog poo
Good design, works well
This is bigger than it looks in the picture, just over knee high (if you’re 5”2!) so it is even more up to the job than I’d expected! Made of strong (ish) plastic it’s easy to keep clean &’won’t rust. It works well on chippings, patio & Short grass, if your grass is quite long don’t bother coz this struggles with longer grass & just makes a bigger mess!!
This item needs the teeth removing as they tear the bags and dig up the grass. Either flatten the ends or round off the teeth.
Thought I would add a bit more detail than Argos did! I struggled with this until I had a lightbulb moment.
Basically you take any smaller size bag but with handles. Put your hand inside the bag. Open the "jaws" of the device and put your hand (which is inside the bag) in the jaws. With fingers stuff bottom of bag as far in as you can on either side of the spring mechanism. Gently pull out your hand, let the jaws close. Slip each bag handle (which should be outside the jaws) inside the small gap above the three holes on the jaws. Dress the bag to cover the outside of the jaws. Then open the jaws again to make sure there is enough of the bag outside the jaws to allow the jaws to open. You are then ready to go and sort out the dirty deposits... Open the jaws then place them directly above the offending item and allow the jaws to snap shut. Unless wet (ugh!) the force of the jaws closing seems to give the deposit a flick up into the bag and you can carry on and pick up other items, including cigarette butts without very much of your existing pickings escaping.
When you have picked up the deposit(s) simply detach the handles from the bag and bring them carefully in front of the jaws. Open the jaws and then you have a bag full of your deposits which you don't need to touch and which hasn't touched the equipment either.
This piece of kit is marvellous. I own a hotel on a busy street. We get the odd inconsiderate person letting their dog do its business on the street. This has saved my life (once I worked out how to use a bag).

Take some industrial strength wipes. Leave your marigolds on and just wipe it down. Store the whole thing in a bin bag. It'll be right. Good luck.

The Dog Clear Up Scooper has not been designed for use with bags, the "teeth" on the edge of the scooper would tear through the plastic.

This item is around 57cm in length, so your height would determine whether you would need to bend while using it.
