Over the past couple of years, Amazon has made efforts to improve its AmazonBasics line of home goods. One such example of a product is its Dog Waste Bags. If you have a dog who tends to “go” when you’re out for a walk in public, waste bags are a must. Below, we’ve provided you with a complete analysis of the AmazonBasics Dog Waste Bags so that you can make an informed buying decision.
The Dog Waste Bags by AmazonBasics have a 4.5-star rating, with nearly 9,250 customer reviews. Of those who reviewed the product, more than three-fourths gave it a five-star rating. Customers can purchase the bags in bulk, with the ability to choose from the following:
- 270 Count
- 300 Count
- 540 Count
- 600 Count
- 810 Count
- 900 Count
Additionally, this product comes with a dispenser and leash clip. You can put a roll of bags into the dispenser so that you can carry them with you easily when on your walk. One roll contains 15 bags. Each bag measures 13” L x 9” W.
- A leak-proof design allows for sanitary pickup
- Arrows point toward the top of the bag, making them easy to open
- The roll fits into a standard-sized leash dispenser perfectly
- The bags are unscented
- The perforations on the bags are not clear-cut, making it challenging to identify where the bag ends
Carrying dog waste bags is a must every time you take your dog out on the leash. There’s no telling when your dog is going to need to “go.” We feel that the Dog Waste Bags from AmazonBasics are one of the best products available on the market today. During testing, these bags stood out to us for a few reasons.
First and foremost, the bags are quite affordable. AmazonBasics’ goal is to deliver affordable, quality products, and they manage to do so here. Depending on how many bags you purchase, the bags cost less than two cents each.
Even though the bags are cheap, customers don’t skimp on quality. The bags are leak-proof, preventing messy spills while taking your dog for a walk. The bags are also large enough that you shouldn’t have to worry about coming in contact with your dog’s waste. During testing, we found it easy to tie knots with this bag.
We also liked the fact that the bags come with a leash dispenser so that you can easily take them with you without having to worry about carrying them or putting them in your pocket. The fact that the pre-portioned rolls fit into the dispenser perfectly was not lost on us, either.
Other competitors tend to deliver leash dispensers with their rolls. However, their rolls include 20 bags instead of 15. Although dog parents can fit more bags into the leash dispenser, it also means that the bags are much thinner as a result. AmazonBasics Dog Waste Bags were some of the thickest we came across.
Cost And Warranty
The cost of these bags depends on how many you purchase. For instance, you can buy 270 bags for about $9 and 600 bags for around $12.50. The 900-count item is quite affordable, costing a mere $15. Additionally, AmazonBasics offers a one-year limited warranty on all of its’ products. If you find that the bags degrade or that they do not perform as you intended, be sure to contact AmazonBasics for assistance.
Lifehacker describes AmazonBasics as “Amazon’s equivalent of a store brand.” Like most other store brands, products are often cheaper when purchased this way.
