What to store in your dog treat pouch
Dog treat bags aren’t just for gravy bones and chew sticks, you know? If you get the right one, they’re actually pretty multi-functional products that can come in handy for a whole host of different reasons when you’re on the go with your furry friend(s).
Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s a lovely review from BullyBillows customer, Stephanie :
“Bag is just the right size for treats, poo bags and I can even put my phone in it! Looks really cool too.”
So, here are some other things you can store or carry in your BullyBillows dog treat pouch:
- Mobile phone
- Poo bags
- Small dog toys
- House and car keys
- Loose change (you never know when you might need it for parking - or ice cream!)
- Training whistle
- Your own snacks
What to look for in a dog treat pouch
You might think there isn’t too much to dog treat bags—it’s just somewhere to stuff some biscuits while you’re out and about if your recall training tactics fail, right? It doesn’t matter what it looks like or the feature it has, right?
Wrong. All of these things are super important if you want to find a pouch that is going to tick all the right boxes. Below are the top must-have features of any great dog pouch.
A secure fastening
Whatever you’re toting in your dog treat bag, you want to be able to access it quickly without hassle but also know that the contents are secure when you’re on the move.
Look out for a pouch that has a good-quality drawstring fastener (like ours do) so you can dip in and out whenever you need to without worrying about losing your valuables.
A secure drawstring fastening will also help keep smells at bay so you don’t have to endure the whiff of salmon while you’re trying to enjoy your walk or pollute your coat pocket with the aroma of chicken skin. Gross.
An easy (and comfortable) way to wear it
The last thing you want to have to do is carry a bag of treats in your hand when you’re trying to control your dog or play a game of fetch. Even rummaging around in your pocket is annoying and entirely avoidable with the right treat bag.
Look for a pouch that you can wear on your waist so you can keep your hands free but have easy access to your essentials at all times.
Our Dog Treat Pouch comes with a handy adjustable waist strap so it can be customised for comfortable use by whoever is wearing it. Our Premium Treat Pouch features a low-key fastening clip so you can attach it to the waistband of your clothes—or anywhere you like really.
It’s more than likely that you’ll be stowing away more than just tidbits in your dog treat pouch, which is why it’s so important to make sure you’ve got ample capacity.
If you are going to want to carry things like your phone and keys, be sure to choose a bag that will accommodate everything you need.
That said, the difference between dog treat pouches over any regular small bag is that the depth is designed for easy access. When you need to whip out a biscuit quickly to bribe your furry friend or train your pupper, you don’t want to have to go digging in a bag that’s too deep.
As with anything related to dogs, your treat pouch is probably going to experience a whole lot of wear and tear over time.
Look for products that are made with durable materials and manufactured to a high standard so you aren’t having to replace them every few months when stitches come loose or fabric tears.
Weather-resistant, washable fabric
As well as looking out for durable material and high-quality construction, also keep an eye out for weather-resistant fabric because your dog treat pouch is going to be exposed to the elements on a regular basis.
Go for something that will dry quickly when it gets wet, can be wiped down easily if it gets dirty, and can be chucked in the washing machine when it needs a good clean.
Bonus feature: multiple pockets
When it comes to dog accessories and pockets, the more the merrier, we say. There’s always something else you need to carry so it’s useful to have a place to put it.
Our Premium Treat Pouch, for instance, features a purpose-built poo bag holder on the side for neat storage and fast access.
