Dog Poop Bag Dispenser Disguised as a Birdhouse

I know this will be a delicate subject for some of you, so I’ll try to be as tactful as possible. I had a crappy situation in my backyard and I felt it was my duty to come up with a solution. You see, when “nature called” for my pup Coco, sometimes I was left holding the bag, strike that, I was left without a bag. Coco scored “number 2″ and I had zero bags to handle waste management. I’m sure you can understand my dilemma. I needed a way to keep some bags on hand, so I could pick up the “funk” from Coco’s “trunk”. A “bank of bags” for when Coco left a “deposit” in the yard. A bag holder for Coco’s ca ca. You get the point.

I needed a bag dispenser this is what I came up with. A tall, “condo” style birdhouse that’s not a birdhouse at all. The front is hinged to add bags and there is a hole in the bottom where bags can be dispensed. I’ll always have bags on hand and no one will be the wiser.

You can check out how I built the Dog Poop Bag Dispenser disguised as a Birdhouse on my blog.
