Rated 4 out of 5 by Blotto Great dispenser, ditch the included bags
The end cap on this dispenser is screw-on, instead of the rubber cap on some others. From experience, rubber caps are easy to pop off, and the first indication of a problem is usually 20 feet of poo bags trailing in the breeze behind you. Not a problem with this dispenser. The bags that come with it however, are terrible. The perforations are shallow and difficult to see, and the bags themselves are small (both depth and width), making clean pickup almost impossible. Apparently they're recycled plastic, which is floppy and weak. After walking about 200 yards with a full bag towards a trash can, the bag came open and dumped on the ground. Luckily I had another brand of bag to re-scoop.

My purchase of the pet waste bag dispenser was a departure from our usual purchase of loose rolls of waste bags as sold in most pet stores. I carefully loaded the roll of bags and then fed the first length of bag material through the front opening. Holding onto the plastic bone and bag material firmly, I pulled sharply on the end to separate the first bag from the others; nothing happened other than to have more bags feed out from the dispenser bone. I'm a 200 pound guy and fit and found it very difficult to burst the bags apart at the perforation. Finally, I had to hold a length of bags up to the light in order to see the perforation, then concentrating the bursting force at that point to break the bag off from the roll. Aside from being nearly impossible to separate the bags from one another, they are very shallow when compared to other brands. I will probably trash the remainder and go back to buying loose rolls of waste pick up bags.
