Cleaning up after your furball is never a pleasant job, but freezing temperatures make it that much harder. These cool gloves might make winter Poop Capades more manageable.

If you live in an area where winters get really cold, you already know the struggle. You’re out and about with your pooch, and when they do their business, it’s time to whip out the poop scooping bag. That’s when the shit gets real. You need to get your gloves off, dig out the bag from the holder, and scoop the little sucker, all the while keeping your dog on the leash and fighting the creeping cold that’s about to freeze your fingers. Or, if you’re a daredevil type and go on walks without gloves, there are probably popsicles where your fingers once were, and your hands are too numb to even feel the bag, let alone open it. Either way, it’s safe to say that walking your dog in the cold is not the most enjoyable experience.

That’s where Walkease winter gloves step in. Designed by dog lovers for dog lovers, these stylish and comfy gloves are packed with useful features. On the top of the gloves, there is a hidden pouch for storing poop bags for easy access, and the synthetic grip fingertips make sure that getting the bag out and opening it really is effortless. There is a synthetic reinforcement on the palms of the gloves, too, for an extra-secure grip on the leash. The gloves are waterproof and come in three different sizes, so they’ll be a snug fit for everyone. I was blown away by how the people at Best Friend Apparel truly thought of everything you might need during winter dog walks- down to the fleece thumbs for taking care of your runny nose.

Innovations in the pet industry don’t have to be all about our four-legged companions. I mean, sure, we all love to spoil our fur babies rotten, but sometimes, it’s nice to see a cool product that’s designed especially for pet pawrents. I certainly can’t wait to see what else Best Friend Apparel will come up with in the future! To find out more about Walkease gloves, check out their Kickstarter campaign.
