Ok, I need some help! How do you deal with this? I have 4 dogs and I walk them together all the time (3 years now). They're 45-70 lbs so the mess they leave behind them is no small thing. I always carry a roll of poop clean up bags and pick everything up out of people's yards. It's not uncommon to have 6-8 bags from one walk! I am sure that I am carrying about 5 extra pounds of "cargo" at the end of a walk. I have the dogs leashes threaded through my belt so I don't have to touch the leashes unless I'm directing someone. When I use a bag, I tie it onto one of the handle loops on a leash. Then they're flinginng all around, bumping me in the thighs, sometimes my hands and even occassionally getting squeezed between my thighs for a step. It grosses me out! And then there's the smell!! I can handle it until we get to about bag 4. Then the smell is just too concentrated and literally floating around under my nose. How do I deal with these bags?? I won't just leave it on the ground, especially in someone's yard because it's just rude to do. We do pass a gas station with trash can outside but I have two aggressive dogs so if anyone is there, and there usually is, I can't go and use the trash can. I carry a camleback on my back with their water and the belt I use is wide, padded and stiff (a special dog walking belt) so I have no room to carry a bag on my back or waist to tuck them in and I refuse to put the bags in my pockets (even if there was enough room). I have to keep my hands empty because the same two aggressive dogs. I have to be able to grab the two dogs at a moment's notice in case a dog sneaks up on us or someone quitely runs around us and surprises the dogs. Any suggestions/ideas?
