Features to Consider

Before you jump straight in, let's take a look at some of the points 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 holding dog treats for training sessions or should it carry your essentials - keys, phone and poop bags when you're out and about on a dog walk?

✎ 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 its 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.

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

Our Picks of the Best Dog Treat Bags & Pouches

1. Best Treat Pouch Overall


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

If you haven't heard of the brand Kurgo, it's a leading manufacturer of pet travel and safety products.

So, as you'd expect these dog treat bags are well designed and excellent quality. We particularly liked that they offer a wide opening so you can easily reach your treats.

There's also a drawstring closure to keep them fresh and avoid any spillages whilst you're out and about.

What's more, the Kurgo 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 bright blue, a rather smart navy with orange or red with a blue interior.

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

⭐️ 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. Best Treat Pouch for Training


If you're looking for something waist-worn, practical and unobtrusive, this treat bag from Ruffwear is ideal.

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 any clothing.

Whilst admittedly it's a slightly more expensive option than the Kurgo Go 'Stuff-it' bag (which is why we rated it in second place), 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 grab your treats easily when needed.

Dimensions: (HxWxD): 15.5 x 12 x 3.2 cm | Adjustable belt fits waists up to 48".

Reasons to Buy

+ Integral belt

+ Magnetic closure

+ Durable design

+ Easy to use one handed

+ Compact

Reasons to Avoid

- Pricier option


3. Best Budget Buy

Company of Animals

NEW FOR 2023

If you're looking for a value dog treat bag then this Company of Animals option is ideal.

Company of Animals dog treat pouch

A simple dog treat pouch designed to clip directly to your waistband using an integral clip or a carabiner.

It hasn't got all the bells and whistles that some of the large bags offer, but it works well as a small treat bag. 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 a little tricky to operate one handed.

Although small, the design has a zipped pocket on the front for stashing a few loose poo bags and a whistle with an additional side mesh pocket for a poo bag roll.

It's worth noting that there's no room for keys or your phone. Available in navy /coral or navy / light blue.

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

Reasons to Buy

+ Great value

+ 3 colour options

Reasons to Avoid

- Tricky one-handed

- Too small for keys and phone


4. Best Pouch for Wet Treats


These silicon treat pouches offer a 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 thin material - they definitely work better if you're wearing jeans. It's worth noting that there are no other attachment options.

The key feature of these pouches is they're incredibly easy to clean with soapy water. Perfect if you're planning on using high-value, wet 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


5. Best Dog Walking Bag

Barking Bags

If you're looking for a treat bag with a few extra pockets, then take a look at the award-winning Original Dog Walking Bag from Barking Bags.

Barking Bags - Original dog walking bag

You may remember the team behind Barking Bags from their appearance on BBC's Dragon's Den and since then they have gone on to win the Pet Industry federation Award.

For me (and for most people I suspect), the key to a good dog walking bag is being able to grab treats, poo bags or you phone quickly and easily. Also I like to keeping my keys and phone well away from dirt and the inevitable smell of meaty treats and poo bags.

So Freddie and I took the Barking Bag for a few test walks and we think you'll love the organisation it offers.

As an extremely forgetful person, I am constantly delving into various coat pockets looking for poo bags, treats, tissues, and I always miss that all important photo op because I can't find my phone quickly enough.

The bag itself is strong and sturdy, washable and water-resistant. We loved the thoughtful addition of a padded shoulder strap for comfort and a luminous band for safer night walks.

The bottom line is that if you're looking for a superior dog walking bag for long, leisurely dog walks off the beaten track then look no further, the Original Dog Walking Bag from Barking Bags is a perfect choice.

Barking Bags also offer a more compact bag without all the bells and whistles but ideal for a stroll in the local park.

Dimensions : 25 H x 32 W x 8 D cm

Reasons to Buy :

+ A pocket for everything

+ Multiple ways to wear

+ Water resistant

+ Separate treat pocket

+ Unisex design

Reasons to Avoid :

- If you want a compact bag

Buying Options


6. Best Instagrammable Bag


If you are planning to impress at the park, then a coordinated set of accessories could be the way to go.

Cocopup dog treat bag and accessories

Coconut Lane has taken the obsession for instagrammable matching accessories to another level. You can now buy a whole range of matching dog accessories from their sister brand Cocopup!

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.

Their simple but stylish treat pouch can be coordinated with their utterly gorgeous walking bag and clipped directly to the coordinating strap for easy access.

Cocopup coordinating treat and walking bag

Available in three different colour-ways - black, mocha (grey) and tan.

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.

With an on-trend range of bag strap designs, coordinating straps, phone covers and scrunchies you can be photo ready!

Dimensions -( W H D ) : 8.5 x 9 x 3cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Small and compact

+ On trend design

+ Coordinating accessories

Reasons to Avoid

- Zip closure

- One method of attachment


7. Best Waist Bag


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

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.

If you prefer a more traditional shoulder bag, the Doog range offers a shoulder bag and a mini belt for running with your dog.

⭐️ 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.

Dimensions -

Walkie Belt extends from 70cm to 130cm

Reasons to Buy

+ Innovative design

+ Streamlined

+ Durable

Reasons to Avoid

- if you prefer a clip-on pouch


8. Best Designed Small Bag


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 its 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


9. Best Value Matching Set


If you can't quite run to the Cocopup collection featured earlier, take a look at the Purrfects range of dog treat and walking bags.

Purrfects dog walking and treat bag

In a similar on-trend style, they offer a dog walking crossbody bag which comes with a coordinating dog treat pouch in both black and this gorgeous pale pink.

The shoulder strap is adjustable so it can be worn over the shoulder or around the waist.

The larger dog walking bag has zippered pockets with plenty of room for your phone, keys and an integral poop bag dispenser.

The coordinating mini treat bag can be clipped onto the shoulder strap to keep those treats handy.

The exterior nylon with a polyester interior, so it's waterproof on the outside and water-resistant on the inside. Oh, and they also offer a range of three corduroy dog walking bags but they don't have matching treat bags.

​⭐️ The bottom line is that this is a great value option if you're looking for a chic dog walking bag.

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

Reasons to Buy

+ Matching set

+ Easy to clean

+ Great value

10. Most Versatile Bag


We love this Pecute Dog Treat Bag which is at the larger end of the treat bag scale so ideal for those longer weekend walks.

Pecute dog treat bag

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 Pecute 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 and has a handy pocket to hold a water bottle.

The main compartment stores treats whilst 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 and more details and photos of the Pecute Treat Bag are available in our in-depth Dog Walking Bags review.

⭐️ Ultimately, 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

Reasons to Buy

+ All in one treat bag

+ Flexible attachments

+ Lots of compartments

+ Great value

+ Shoulder strap option

+ Integrated poop bag dispenser

+ Water bottle compartment

Reasons to Avoid

- Larger than a treat pouch

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 Barking Bags Original
