I have four dogs, with two being rather large, and then the two cavs.... so poo disposal was becoming rather a problem. I looked into a dog septic system, but they don't work well once temperatures fall below 40F and our winters are quite cold here in Ohio.

I had been using a bucket with a plastic garbage bag in it, but the smell has become awful with the hot weather here now, even if I dumped it everyday. I also felt pretty guilty about all those plastic bags I was using.

I did an internet search for dog waste disposal and found the Flushable Bag. I ordered them from a company in Wisconsin, but they are made in England. They came yesterday, and boy are they a good solution for me! Once you do your pickup you put the bag in the toilet and let it sit for one minute, then just flush it away. I'm not sure how they would affect a septic system, however. We have city sanitary sewers here, so they work great!

Here's the Wisconsin company I bought them from, in case any of you would like a look at them:

Here'a an option for UK members -- cornstarch based bags from Mango Mutt:

They also come in 25 bag packs. I think I will order these.
