I like to think that the most relatable experience for all dog owners is the sudden appearance of waste bags everywhere. You bring a dog home and they start to appear everywhere – in your pockets, in your handbag, they float around in your car – they’re literally all over the place!
Now, I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. After all, it means that you’re a good person who cleans up after their pooch. That said, I’m also excited to report that it’s 2021 and OH MY GOD there’s so many cool Aussie dog waste bag holders out there.
Like, you won’t find them in your average retail pet shop, but there’s some truly beautiful ones if you know where to look for them. In this article, I get to show you some of my favourites from small Aussie brands. Let’s get right into it.

How to connect a dog waste bag holder
Poop bag holders often come with a handy clip, so that you can easily connect them to your leash to make sure you’re never caught out without a bag for your dog.
To connect a waste bag dispenser to a leash, you want to have something like an extra d-ring close to the handle. Many dog leashes cater for this as part of their design.
If yours doesn’t have anything to connect a poo bag holder, an alternative work-around may be to make a knot into your leash to attach it.
