Rated 5 out of 5 by jasjermom The Best Scooper We have ever used.
We have had dogs for over 30 years and this is the absolute best scooper we have ever purchased. The fact that you can attach a standard plastic grocery/retail bag to it is the best idea. I was using an old plastic planter with a plastic grocery bag lining the inside of it & a small gardening shovei. This required me to bend down or squat repeatedly to pick up poop. We have 2 dogs & 1/2 acre yard! This scooper is easy to use & stays clean. My husband & I have chronic back pain and having this scooper makes this task a lot less painful:) One of our friends just ordered one after our recommendation.

This really works like a charm. I've tried others, however, this one is so easy to use and has a large capacity in case you skip the clean up for a couple of days!

This works great and is made well. I tried using it with a plastic grocery bag and it worked o.k., but the bag didn't stay in place very well so I just use it without the bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvmypuppydogs Not perfect, but does the job.
I'm 5'8" tall and recovering from a broken vertebra, so before I could get my 2 dogs back home again I needed to find a way to pick up their waste without bending over. I searched everywhere I could think of online to find the tallest, lightest weight poop removal system that seemed like it would actually work in my yard. After using it for a week I can attest that this 36" tall, all plastic product gets the job done, and was half the price of a very similar product on a major online retailer. Due to my back injury I can't lift the swivel shovel half while standing, but am still able to drag it across the yard to the poop. The rake half, however, is light enough for me to easily maneuver, and any tiny bits of poop that cling onto it seem to fall off by themselves the next time I use it. If I sit down afterwards I can then lift the shovel half up to remove the waste and put on a new bag. Grocery or drug store plastic shopping bags fit easily and securely onto the shovel half, held in place by external tabs. My only real gripe with the product is that the shovel's handle DOES loosen up with almost every use, so I quickly realized that I need to check and retighten it every single time. The instructions warn against over-tightening, so I don't, but it is somewhat annoying to have it always reloosening. I am really, really glad that I found a product that fits my immediate needs so well, but will probably not bother to use this again once I'm fully healed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MNSlaughter Works well as designed but design could be improved
The Petmate Clean Response Waste Management System Swivel Bin & Rake system does what it's intended to do - pick up poo. The bin is good size which if you do not pick up poo on a regular basis, it will help not having to empty out many times. That being said, the construction implementation could have been designed better - the handles of the bin and rake are a couple 12" poles that screw/rotate together (without screws). The screw is in the wrong direction for a right handed person: if you use the bin with your left hand and scoop poo with the rake with you right hand - the rake assembly will back out coming apart. If you do not pay attention to this, it will come apart. Nothing that is a show stopper, or can't be corrected with some tape around the joints, but it's a design flaw.
The bin has an integrated grocery bag holding system that allows the bin not to get filthy - it's a little bit hard to use, but better than having to clean up the bin after cleaning up the poo.
I've had 3 of these over 15 years and they work. They've worn out due to the harsh Minnesota winters (and leaving them outside in the cold).
If you are looking for a decent poo picker, I would recommend this.
