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 poop 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 recall 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 Bag

Best dog treat bag for training


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

Kurgo 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 belt clip or a small 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.


The only downside we could find when testing, was the carabiner was quite small so fiddly to fit.


We recommend the Kurgo Go Stuff-It treat bag because it's fairly 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

+ Drawstring opening


Reasons to Avoid

+ Only one extra compartment

 


2. Doog Walkie Belt

Best dog treat bag with belt


Doog is an Australian dog brand founded way back in 2007. The Walkie Belt was the first product to launch, and it won multiple awards for its innovation.

Barkley & Fetch dog training treat bag in tartan

Designed to wear around your waist as a belt, it sits snugly on your hips so you hardly know it's there.


Since launch the dog belt has undergone various updates.


The new and improved version has 2 small yet strong carabiners, and the front pocket is larger to fit the bigger sized phones, plus more treats.


It boasts two zipped pockets for valuables and treats along with a pocket designed to hold poo bags (it comes pre-loaded with some eco-friendly poo bags). We love the blue and red combination but it's also available in grey/ pink and black.


We recommend the Doog walking belt if you want a dog treat carrying solution to wear around your waist but are ideally looking for something more stylish and streamlined than a traditional bum bag.


The Doog range also includes shoulder bags and a mini belt which is designed for those of you looking to run with your dog.


Dimensions - belt extends from 70cm to 130cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Innovative design

+ Streamlined

+ Durable

Reasons to Avoid

- If you prefer a shoulder bag style

 

3. 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 use the shoulder strap


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

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 so ideal for those longer weekend adventures.

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.

Ruffwear treat bag for dog training

You have a choice of attachments with an adjustable belt included or you can clip it directly to your waistband if your prefer.


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.


We recommend the Ruffwear dog treat bag if you attend puppy or dog training sessions. You can focus on your dog and the trainer knowing you can reach for your treats easily.

Cocopup dog treat bag and accessories

Their simple but stylish treat pouch can be coordinated with their utterly gorgeous walking bag.


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


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 it works well on dog walks.


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.

7. Silicone Dog Treat Pouch

Best treat pouch with magnetic closure


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

silicone dog treat pouches in green and blue with dog treats

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. PuiPet Treat Pouch

Best designed large treat pouch


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

PuiPet grey felt dog treat pouch

The standout design feature is the large magnetised pocket for treats which is really easy to open and close one handed.


PuiPet have considered how you might use this pouch and have incorporated a couple of good sized pockets. As you can see we easily stored our poo bags, keys and of course our phone.


Matched with cool looks on the designer front it's made from felt with waterproof internal pockets.


Admittedly the felt outer isn't waterproof which is a consideration, but due to it's flat design it can comfortably be worn under a jacket. The adjustable belt provides flexibility to wear it around the waist or as a shoulder bag across your body.


Dimensions - ( W H ) : 23cm x 17cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Magnetised treat pocket

+ Several spacious pockets

+ Wearable options

Reasons to Avoid

- Not waterproof

Company of animals purple dog treat pouch shown on a waistband

A simple dog treat pouch designed to clip directly to your waistband, it hasn't got all the bells and whistles but it works well.


It offers a nice wide opening so you can fit your hand in to grab those dog treats.


Whilst it has a drawstring closure to keep the treats safe, it's quite tricky to operate one handed.


Although small, the design has a zipped pocket for stashing poo bags and a pocket on the outside big enough for a poo bag roll. It's worth noting that there's no room for keys or your phone.


Available in three different colours - red, black or purple.

 

Dimensions - ( W H D ) : 16 x 25 x 2 cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Great value

+ 3 colour options

Reasons to Avoid

Our Verdict


Whichever dog treat bag you choose, your dog is sure to be delighted that their

favourite treats are so close at hand.


If you want a pouch style treat bag which attaches to your waistband and is solely for treat storage then we think that the Kurgo Go Stuff-It Dog Treat Bag is perfect.


On the other hand, if you are looking for a bag which will carry all your stuff on a walk including phone, keys etc, then you can't go wrong with the beautifully designed Doog Walkie Belt
