A pooper scooper typically comes in a combo of dustpan with a long handle and a rake for raking dog poop. These are great for ensuring you can stay clear of your dog’s waste while scooping it up. The only downside is that you are having to spend the time cleaning your dog’s poop, and if you don’t keep up with it, you can accidentally end up stepping in it.
