treat bag

Post by swannyj » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:35 am

Greetings, I'm looking for a treat bag with multiple treat compartments. I would like to wear it all day to allow spontaneous training so would be helpful to be able to close when not in use but stay open during training. Suggestions?

I like the Doggone Good Rapid Rewards pouches, but their secondary compartments are a bit awkward - if you only need two compartments I'd recommend those. I keep the average treats in the main pocket and the super special treats in the secondary interior pocket. The pouch has a magnetic closure that snaps closed on its own, but is also easy to open super quickly. It will delay, but not stop, a curious dog. ;)

Another option are cheap cloth tool belts from a hardware store; they're what several of the trainers I work with use, and are also what the shelters tend to keep on hand for volunteers to borrow. They don't really "close," but tied tightly the tension of the fabric tends to keep them sort of sealed at the top.

Thanks for the reply. I like the ideal of a nail apron. I have sabotaged my pup several times by giving a treat and a crump from another treat flying out with it or the treat itself crumbling. I'm having trouble finding a soft but firm treat that doesn't crumble from multiple reaches in pouch.

if you dont mind a greasy mess, hot dog chunks or pieces of liverwurst are really good. they're smelly to so they're pretty high value

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried hot dog a couple weeks ago but pup is changing rapidly so will try again. Will definitely try liverwurst.
