Trigger Action

The trigger action pooper scoopers open jaws to quickly pick dog waste off any surface. These are made to be quick and efficient without tearing up grass and can be used on any surface. 


Rakes and bins or rakes and spades are traditional pooper scoopers that allows you to rake up or push the dog waste from the ground directly into a bin or spade. 

Bag Attachments

Comparing Employee Dishonesty Coverage & Bonding

PCI’s employee dishonesty coverage is similar to a bond, but there may be some key differences to consider.

Employee dishonesty coverage:

  • Can be purchased in the same transaction
  • Doesn’t run credit checks
  • Provides $10,000 per occurrence and $25,000 aggregate coverage

Bonds may differ from our dishonesty coverage by:

  • Checking your credit during the application process
  • Having a “Conviction Claus;” Often bonds won’t pay on claims unless there is a conviction
  • Many require you to reimbursement the bonding company after a claim is paid
