New Dog Waste Management Solutions Ideal for Pet Owners at Home or On The Go


Arlington, TX (June 7, 2013) – Dog owners around the world share one common challenge: how to quickly and easily clean up their dog’s “business.” Petmate® is launching the new Clean Response® Dog Waste Management line, which offers thoughtful solutions for pet owners whether they are at home or are on the go.

Backyard Solutions

The Clean Response tools for backyard waste pickup are thoughtfully developed to address the varying needs of retailers and pet owners. Efficient space utilization, coordinating compatible refill bags and distinctive features make this program a comprehensive in-store solution center, which provides consumers with multiple conveniences for managing dog waste. The lightweight and free standing Claw Scoop is a convenient and powerful one-handed operation that’s ideal for picking up waste in thick grass. The Arm & Hammer Swivel Bin & Rake makes cleaning up after a dog quick and easy. The large capacity swivel bin saves time with less unloading, and the rake size and tine spacing are designed for optimal pickup capability on any surface. The Swivel Bin and Rake also eliminates back and leg fatigue and strain with a convenient handle that is over three-feet tall and features a comfort-grip. The Jumbo Rake & Pan has a high back design to help keep waste in the pan. And, like the Swivel Bin and Rake, it has a high capacity bin to save pet owners time with less unloading, and its durable steel poles are over three-feet tall for ergonomic operation.

Compatible with the Swivel Bin & Rake and the Jumbo Rake & Pan, the odor-neutralizing Heavy Duty Handle-Tie Waste Bags are twice as thick as standard grocery bags and feature easy-tie handles for quick and convenient disposal.

On-The-Go Solutions

The ingenuity of Petmate’s Clean Response on-the-go dog waste solutions removes daily inconveniences such as dispenser assembly and cumbersome bag replenishment. The new Quick Load Dispensers features a small, compact design and an adjustable strap that tightens securely to any leash or retractable leash. Both a canister shape and bone shape are available in a variety of colors.

A variety of compatible odor-neutralizing waste bags are available including: the Refill Waste Bags with Microban®, which helps prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria and features a thick and dependable construction that reduces the chance of tearing; the Biodegradable Refill Waste Bags that is thick and dependable but breaks down much faster than standard waste bags; and the Easy-Tie Waste Bags that has a quick-dispensing “grab and go” box for added convenience. Available in 90 and 180-count, all waste bags load in the dispenser in seconds with no plastic spool to discard.

All products in the new Clean Response line contain Microban to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria and will be available to specialty retailers in August.
