Project Description

PawPail - The World’s Best Pet Waste Station for your Home

Convenient & clean pet waste management

Mike Harakal, inventor of PawPail, came to HaA to alleviate a problem in his community regarding the control of everyday pet waste. Many community living neighborhoods, like his, require homeowners to keep their pet’s waste in their garage until the weekly garbage truck arrives. This is not ideal as the smell can easily build up over time and attract other animals.

HaA worked with Mike to turn his ideas for a pet waste management station into a convenient system that is multi-functional and affordable.

PawPail is a revolutionary container designed to supply you with custom controlled life PawBags, discreetly stores your dog’s waste in a convenient area and keep your environment clean. When your dog goes to the bathroom, simply open the top lid of PawPail, dispense a PawBag to pick up the waste, open up the main lid where you will find a perforated basket to pop the waste inside. Pawprint perforations are located on each side of the PawPail to properly ventilate your pail to prevent odor build up, paired with an activated carbon air filter to trap odors and removing harmful chemicals from the air.

PawPail was manufactured with UV and weather resistant materials in a sleek, modern design. Features include a patent-pending DualVent™ technology that facilitates airflow through the pail to minimize odors and eliminates the need for liner bags. PawPail. A mounting system allows for flexible placement options giving you a convenient cleaning experience.
