Abstract Background

About Us

We’d like to introduce ourselves and explain how we got here. Our names are Justin and Michael. The original idea for the Alpha Scooper was born out of pure frustration with the available tools when Michael was starting Little Stinkers, a local Pet Waste Removal Service. In that profession, one can imagine the vast quantities of poop that had to be scooped by Michael and his employees.

Unfortunately, despite purchasing and trying countless pooper scoopers from both online and local sources; not one could withstand a week or two with Little Stinkers!  Keep in mind, at the time, Little Stinkers was a small business with 30 weekly customers. After eventually exhausting the current options, Michael still could not find a suitable pooper scooper to fit his needs. One day while discussing the problem with his good friend Justin they decided to make their own instead! Over the next 5 years, numerous prototypes & thousands of yards & cat boxes cleaned….the Alpha Scooper was born!

Why did we redesign (or reinvent) the standard pooper scooper? Well, because the pooper scoopers currently available have many issues but 3 critical ones that we figured out how to solve are: 

  • Not durable due to the low-grade materials they are made with

  • Not efficient removing all of the waste due to design flaws

  • Bad comfort design causing operator pain in the knees or back

Alpha Scooper is a small business created by a couple of friends who are now family and wanted to solve the endless frustration of scooping your dog & cat’s poop with sub-par products! This business was built upon the ingenuity to solve a recurring issue for all pet owners, and the perseverance to create a solution.
