It’s easy to be a responsible pet owner by cleaning up after your dog – just be prepared to roll-up your sleeves!

Step 1 Be prepared When taking your dog for a walk, always bring at least one plastic bag.

Step 2 Put on the bag Turn the plastic bag inside out and put it on your hand, as you would a glove.

Step 3 Pick up the mess Wearing the plastic bag, pick up your dog’s mess.

Step 4 Wrap the mess Grab the edge of the plastic bag and gently pull it off your hand, turning the bag outside in, so that the mess is contained inside. Tie the bag shut.
