Our Verdict


Features to Consider


Before you jump straight in and buy one, let's take a look at what you should consider when buying a dog treat bag or pouch ?


Size

How you would like to use your dog treat bag? Will it be solely for storing dog treats (so more of a treat pouch than a bag) or would you like a bag big enough to use as a dog walking bag. Should it carry your essentials - keys, phone and poo bags when you're out and about?


Attachment

How would you like to wear the bag when out walking? Bags can be worn in various ways - hooked onto your belt, over the shoulder or are you looking for a waist bag with it's own belt included?


Washable

Ideally chose a bag which you can either throw in the washing machine or wipe down after use.


Closure

There are three main methods for closing treat bags.


If you are looking to use your treat bag for dog training sessions, can we suggest a magnetic closing pouch. This will enable you to grab the treats one-handed without distracting your dog and not worry about them spilling on the ground whilst you concentrate on your commands.


If you are looking for the odd reward whilst on a dog walk, then a zip or drawstring will work well as you can use both hands.


Our Buying Guide features different sized dog treat bags and pouches with a variety of ways to wear them, so there should be something in our Top 10 for everyone and their four-legged friend.




Our Picks of the Best Dog Treat Bags & Pouches


1. Kurgo Go Stuff-It

Best Dog Treat Pouch Overall


If you're looking for something small which you can simply snap on your belt then these bright Kurgo dog treat bags are perfect.

Kurgo blue and teal coloured dog treat bags with a carabiner hook

As you'd expect from Kurgo, they are well designed and excellent quality.


It's worth noting that they offer a wide opening so you can easily reach your treats, alongside a drawstring closure to keep them fresh whilst you're out and about.


This dog treat pouch also incorporates two attachment options - a strong plastic clip to attach to your belt or a carabiner which could attach to a belt or coat loop.


Better still, there's a small zipped pocket at the back large enough to stash your keys or a few poo bags. You have a choice of this blue and teal combination or red with a blue interior.


Small, simple, well designed and easily cleaned, this is a great value and long lasting dog treat bag.


Dimensions - (W H D) : 14 x 7.6 x 19 cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Small and compact

+ 2 attachment options

+ Zipped second compartment


Reasons to Avoid

2. Pet Room Dog Treat Bag

Most Versatile Treat Bag


We've taken a shine to this upgraded Pet Room dog treat bag because it's great value and extremely versatile.

The previous version was well designed but the new and upgraded version is even better if you're looking for a bag to hold all your dog walking essentials!


We love the flexibility the Pet Room dog bag offers. It can be worn attached to your belt using the integral metal clip, around your waist using the belt provided or as a shoulder bag.


It's one of the few bags to offer all three options. The upgraded treat bag is now slightly larger, has added D rings which are useful for carrying used dog poo bags hands-free.


The main compartment stores treats whilst two smaller compartments can hold all your other essentials, think poo bags, keys and of course your phone for yet more dog photos !


It's great value and includes a silicone dog bowl, poo bag dispenser opening and 2 poo bag rolls so really you are buying a mini dog training bag.

Dimensions - ( W H D) : 16 x 18 x 7.5 cm

Reasons to Buy

+ All in one training bag

+ Flexible attachments

+ Lots of compartments

+ Great value


Reasons to Avoid

3. Pecute Dog Treat Bag

Best Large Bag


This dog treat bag from Pecute is a good alternative to the Pet Room Treat Bag featured above. Both are at the larger end of the treat bag scale.

The bag has been upgraded and improved to include a dedicated shoulder strap in addition to the existing waist strap and a pocket to hold a water bottle


So it now has the flexibility to be worn in three ways: as a dog treat belt, clipped directly to your waistband or it's one of the only bags to offer an adjustable shoulder strap.


The larger zipped pocket is ideal for storing your phone and we loved the cleverly built-in poop bag dispenser.


This treat bag arrives with a few extra touches including a roll of poo bags, clicker and a collapsible water bowl.


If you're interested in the Pecute bag, it's available in two sizes (the original smaller bag and the upgraded larger treat bag).


Admittedly, both sizes are slightly larger than most of the treat pouches featured here, so it really depends how you use your treat bag - solely for treats or to store phone, keys and poo bags too.

Dimensions - ( W H D ) : Upgraded Bag 20 x 20 x 7 cm | Original Bag 10.5 x 17.5 x 6 cm

The integral belt is the big selling point as it can be worn with anything.


Whilst admittedly it's a slightly more expensive option than the Kurgo 'Stuff-it' bag, as you'd expect from Ruffwear, it's incredibly durable and designed to stand the test of time.


Easy to clean it has a washable outer and waterproof inner liner. A well thought out design the treat bag is easily opened with the pull of a tab and it cleverly snaps shut using a magnetic closure so easy to use one handed.

Cocopup dog treat bag and accessories

Their simple but stylish treat pouch can be coordinated with their utterly gorgeous walking bag (and phone cover, hair scrunchy....)


Designed with a carabiner style clip, the treat pouch is easily attached to your bag or belt.


The team at Cocopup have put thought into the design and it has evolved from its original conception to a functional treat pouch matched with cool looks on the design front.


It's compact, water-resistant and wipe clean. OK, so the pouch has a zip closure to keep the treats safe which isn't the easiest to operate one handed if you are training, but did I mention it looks great ?


Available in three different colourways - black, mocha (grey) and tan, with a coordinating walking bag available and a on-trend range of bag strap designs which you can mix and match.


It's worth mentioning that the pouch is too small to store your phone or keys so you might consider the matching dog walking bag too!


The walking bag features an integral poop bag dispenser and both external and internal zipped compartments to keep your phone and keys away from your dog stuff. More colours and strap designs are planned for 2022. Let's face it, with these accessories you will definitely be the envy of the park.

Surprisingly spacious, this treat pouch by Petsafe has several pockets for treats and your phone but at the same time is designed to sit flat against your body.

The best design feature is the spring action pocket which is really easy to open and close one handed.


Petsafe have considered how you might use this pouch and have incorporated a couple of clips so you can attach a whistle or any other training devices.


It attaches via an adjustable belt or a clip, both of which are included with the pouch. Available in 3 different colours alongside 2 size options, the larger of which can hold a phone.


As it's difficult to tell from the photo, the video shows clearly the size and attachments.

Reasons to Buy

+ Spring action pocket

+ Several treat pockets

+ 3 colour options

7. Silicone Dog Treat Pouch

Best for Wet Treats


These silicon treat pouches offer an great alternative to the fabric treat bag.

Available singularly or in a pack of two they have a heavy duty clip for attaching directly to your waistband.


We found these clips durable but a bit too big and bulky on our waistbands. It's worth noting that there are no other attachment options.


The key feature of these pouches is they're incredibly easy to empty and clean with soapy water. Perfect if you're planning on using high-value dog training treats such as cheese or meat as a food based reward.


Super lightweight they cleverly use integral magnets to keep the pouch shut between uses. Available in various bright colours.


Dimensions - ( W H D ) :12.5x10.5 x 4cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Easy to clean

+ Suitable for moist treats

Reasons to Avoid

- Only attaches to waist band

- Bulky on waistband

It's worth noting that UK company - Mud Daddy offer their own version of this lightweight silicon treat bag. Available in three bright colours, they're available directly from the Mud Daddy store online.


8. Barkley & Fetch Tartan Dog Treat Bag

Best Coordinating Accessories


If you are planning to impress at the park, then a coordinated set of accessories could be the way to go. Barkley & Fetch offer a range of coordinating dog accessories so you can match your lead, harness and dog treat bag.

This gorgeous tartan drawstring bag is the perfect size to hold your dog treats and with a wide opening, it's easy to get your hand in to reach for them.


Admittedly the elastic drawstring closure isn't easy to operate one-handed.


Designed to clip directly onto your waistband it doesn't offer any other attachments.


The inner liner is waterproof and Barkley & Fetch recommend a hand wash in cool water, so better suited to hard biscuits and treats.


Ultimately this may not be the best designed dog treat bag in this review but it is definitely the best looking. Simply pair it with a matching lead, collar and harness for the ultimate chic look.


Dimensions - ( W H ) : 10 x 12 cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Stylish

+ Coordinating accessories

Reasons to Avoid

- Difficult to clean

- Tricky one-handed
