KAS ˙klid

No, I've no idea what the text on this Czech bag says -- though I'm fascinated by the potential connection between "elektrickÚ vysavače", "Pečlivě a profesionßlně" and the world of dogpoop.

This bag comes with a high-tech poop-scoop inside. This rectangle of cardboard is scored for folding in a cunning pattern to enable you to scoop up poop of various dimensions and consistencies without getting your hands dirty. Pop both scoop and poop into the bag, and you've fulfilled your civic duty to clean up after your pooch.

Of course, you can always use a broom (like the man pictured on the bag) to sweep any stray faecal particles into the path of pedestrians, who will duly carry the offending matter into their homes and offices on the bottoms of their shoes. Thereby also absolving you of your civic duty.

KAS ˙klid (white)

Same idea as the bag above, but now in white rather than brown.

Las Vegas

Home of the bag, not its name. Dog mess doesn't biodegrade in the desert, so it has to be cleaned up before it gets tracked into the casinos (as if Americans ever walked anywhere!). This large bag features three compartments: the main one (white plastic), plus smaller black ones on each side. Use the big one to carry your shopping; use the others for your wallet and your dogshit.

Mutt Mitt

The only dogbag to feature a plug for a website: www.muttmitt.com. There's a cartoon of Snowy (TinTin's dog) leaning on nothing. 

The website assures us that the Mutt Mitt "is totally degradable, decomposes with or without sunlight, is non-toxic, and environmentally safe in landfills or incinerators. Biodegradation starts as soon as the mitt is used. For best environmental results, compost after use." From Wheelwright Park in Cohasset, Massachusetts. Wherever that is.
