My pooper scooper broke. It was a plastic claw scooper from Petco. It costs 26 dollars. I'm not going to buy another plastic piece of junk for 26 bucks. I went to petco today and the only other alternative was an aluminum tray and a rake which was held to a stick with one rivet. The biggest piece of junk i've ever seen. That also costs 26 bucks.
I'm looking for some type of scooper. A claw preferably that is made out of metal. I hate plastic garbage. It doesn't even have to be a claw. Just something made of metal that works. Any ideas? I went ot petco, target, and gander mountain and found nothing of use.
I use a kids seaside spade and a carrier bag
Kitty litter scoop?
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
I use a garden spade to pick up or push the poop onto a flat ended roofing shovel. I can pick up several piles before I toss into the field.
We have been using this one, Petco, for a year and a half now. It is plastic, but works great for me. No moving parts or hinges. Unfortunately, two handed operation, but it works for us.

I like this one from petsmart mine is the rake http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2754403 I've had it for 4 yrs and its still in good shape and it stays outside year round.
I had this kind first http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2754402 it work out great util winter with the ice and the cold it lasted less than a year.
Actually, that's the one I was going to suggest. My original pooper scooper was the same one, but with a metal handle. After we moved here, I bent the handle hitting it against a tree to clean it off (back then we had woods behind us where I could toss the poop). Except for the bent handle, that thing lasted all of Mick's 15 1/2 years. We replaced it with a wooden handled set when we got Caleb. If the handles break, they're easy enough to replace.Originally Posted by Scoper50
I double bag with the plastic bags that come around my daily newspaper.
I use my rake from my old pooper scooper and a snow shovel.
In the winter I use a spade.
