IN THE BEGINNING, THERE WAS POOP…
They say, be the person your dog thinks you are, and surely that person doesn’t roam around with a bag full of poop in their hand. Being a dog parent can truly fill your life with warmth and happiness. The thing nobody tells you about it is how you become an accomplice in your dog’s dirty business, for better, for worse.
OH, THE PLIGHT OF THE POOP!
We love our little poopers, err, Puppers! But we could do without the fetid aroma taking over pleasant conversations with our neighbours and ruining the taste of that precious morning coffee we like to casually sip on our morning walks. If only we had spare hands to hold the dog leash in one, our kid’s hand in the other, and forage for a trash can with binoculars in the third. Unfortunately, we couldn’t design a prosthetic hand to hold the poop bag! But we did one better!
CUT THE CRAP
Being proud rescue dog owners of two beautiful fur babies - Finn and Mayday, we felt a serious need for a stylish and functional product that could relieve us from the discomfort and embarrassment of carrying a full bag of poop around. Being covered in dog hair may be an easy and (quite honestly) endearing look to pull off. But straddling the streets with a bag full of poop is never a cute look.
ENTER WALK STAR…
In the balmy summer of 2018, out of frustration over the sheer absence of a solution in the market (and being the creative whizzes we are!), the idea for Walk Star was born. About a dozen inspiring dog walks later, we came up with a discreet and hands-free way to carry full poop bags. Walk Star is a compact, uber fashionable, and practical solution to dog poop disposal that will take the shit off your hands, literally.
THIS ONE’S FOR THE DOGS
Our Walk Star Dog Waste Caddy is just the beginning of our story. We are passionate about rescuing, raising, and living with dogs and aspire to make it a lot easier, all while adding heaps of style to it. We hope to support the rescue dog efforts across Canada and the wider world.
