Why would I use the Poovac over more traditional methods?
Our product has many advantages over traditional methods. There is minimal bending over involved in removing pet waste. The other major advantage is with the bag system. The machine and operator will never get contaminated with dog mess.
I have a large dog, will it be able to pick-up big mess?
The Poovac will vacuum up mess from the smallest of dogs (like the Chiwawa) to the largest (such as a Great Dane).
