As a responsible dog owner who finds carrying used poop bags in my hand while on a walk very unpleasant, I wanted to find a lightweight solution that would allow me to transport the used bags in a RIGID structure – preventing bag breakage or smashing. I also wanted to carry it discreetly, hands-free and for it to be operable with one hand so I could still securely hold my dogs’ leashes while I picked up after them. I didn’t need a cup holder, so you won’t find one on a Porter PocketsTM.
Porter Pockets™ promotes being a responsible dog owner by making cleaning up after our pets less of a hassle. Our neighborhoods, parks, beaches, wooded trails, downtowns and other areas frequented by dogs benefit from the reduction of dog waste left by their owners. Dog owners benefit greatly by helping to keep these areas pet-friendly, welcoming, and accessible.
What’s important to my husband, Bruce, and I in this project is that the product:
- Is quality made and durable to last a long time;
- Be manufactured in the USA using as many locally sourced and domestic products as possible;
- Limit packaging, but when necessary use sustainable resources and recycled materials as much as possible. Even the unique, black rubber band that some of you may receive binding the strap (depending on where your Porter Pocket was purchased) is really cool. You’re going to choose to keep it because it is a great reusable item; and
- contribute to organizations that provide valuable services to our communities by donating a portion of the net proceeds from each purchase to a non-profit of the month.
Because WE are our dogs’ porters for the many things we carry and do for them (given they don’t have opposable thumbs) we chose the name, Porter PocketsTM. Plus, there seemed to be a strong need for alliteration in the name, for whatever reason.
Oh – and we have two corgis which is why you see one of our dogs, Rupert, in the logo. His buddy, Belle, is the one with the wild eye.
I know you will find the same value in having a Porter Pocket as we have. It really does make the walk with your best pals even better. Once you've started one, you will desperately miss it the very next time you go for a dog walk without it.Thank you,
