I have never really talked with anyone but Jason about the odor problem I used to have. I would take the dogs out, clean up after them and pocket the bag of waste until I could deposit it in a garbage can. The terrible mistake I would often make is forgetting that I had a stinky bag in my pocket until I was in the groomers/pet store/pub having a conversation with someone... or trying to. I'd be mid-sentence when I'd become aware the terrible smell wafting from my pocket and try to politely high tail it out of there before anyone else noticed. But I'm sure others noticed. I was always just hoping to get away before anyone complained!
Then there's all those friends that used to frequently invite me and the dogs to walk with them. A few friends commented on the odor problem. others held their tongues (and probably their noses but I wasn't looking- I was trying to walk and clean up after three dogs!) Needless to say, by last fall, we didn't get invited out for walks with friends much anymore. Something had to be done! I am always, always going to clean up after my dogs but what about the smell?
The PoopPac was with me. It was in the car. I glanced at it and thought “it’s just a short walk, in town, with public trash cans around, I’ll be fine.” I ended up toting four bags full of poop. Even Jason wouldn't walk on the same block as the dogs and I. I came to understand that the faint smell I still noticed from a full PoopPac was nothing compared to not having the PoopPac at all. And I doubt anything short of carrying a vacuum sealed container was going to be better. I have not walked the dogs without my PoopPac since.
