Bizarre AshPoopie Concept is a Poop-Burnin’ Machine

by Shane McGlaun

A long time ago, we had a dog for my kids before it escaped from the yard and was never seen again. The thing I hated most about the dog was having to scoop the poo out back so my kids didn’t get into it. Handling dog poo is gross for sure. A new concept product that I can’t see ever making it to market is called the AshPoopie or AshPuppie – the maker doesn’t seem to be able to decide what to call it.


The concept has a scoop that opens when you press a button and then closes on the poo. It then drops some sort of capsule that burns the poo to ash that you can dump out. There is no mention of what the capsule is made from, which makes me wonder if this is a gag. Check out the video to see the far-fetched product concept in action:

I like the idea of it though, it would be great to not have to deal with bagged turds if you are a pet owner. Picking up poo with a bag on your hand is nearly as gross as not having a bag on your hand. The maker claims the AshPuppie (Poopie) will be ready for early 2012.

    I expect fro someone like you to investigate more before you criticize or disqualify or have doubt about
    If you would have looked at the patent which is already allowed and public domain you would have understood that it has no fire at all.
    Did you ever think or know what does feces contain ? 80% water !
    And finally, if you would have read about who stands behind this invention I can promise you that you would have run begging to be one of the first one to use.
    What about some lack of envy and applause to those who really think of better and cleaner world ???

      There was no offense intended by the post. We actually find the concept both interesting and entertaining.

      If you can provide further insight into how the Ashpoopie as to how the waste is disposed of (which is not specified on the product website,) I will gladly update the post to clarify.

      Great concept! (I’m a dog owner and find the plastic bags are just stupid). I’m Just wondering if the ash is a dehydrated form of the waste OR if there is a chemical reaction that emits a secondary by-product as the moisture is released. Does anyone know?
