Have been searching for a quality bag or apron.
Am hoping to get some recommendations.
My question should i try and get a apron with 3 pockets for special or different
rewards? Or one that has a snap closed pouch design.
Any input is much appreciated :)

Some folks use an arm pouch which works well for heeling. Hoodies with a large front pouch are common or just jean pockets. No matter what you use you have to fade it out fairly quickly and leave the treats on the table or in your training bag.

In the Agility classes the trainer wanted us to have our treats in a bag we could throw to get the dogs running straight out of the tunnel and weaves. My sister and I went into the dollar store and found a couple of leather cosmetic bags and use them. They get a little messy by the time the dog drools all over them but they seem to be standing up alright. Before that, I just used a plastic sandwich bag in my pocket.

I just use a training pouch that I ordered online. Sometimes I just use a ziplock baggie as well. I've also seen people use things like a Lowe's tool bag. They all work well. I have no personal preference, I just use what's easiest to get at the time.

I got one I like a lot from Petsmart. It's purple, but there were other colors available too. It clips onto my belt and has a drawstring opening at the top, I think it also has a loop that I can put my belt through to hold it.

they have quiet a few at petsmart that you can choose from. or you can order online at amazon, just go to their website, type in 'treat pouch' for the search and see what they have. i have the planet dog one which is just one sack but you can pull it out and wash it. (invert it, not actually pull it completely out). it holds a good amount of treats and is easy to close.

everyone's different though so i would try your local petsmart to try on what they have in person and see what you like

Fanny Pack with ziplock bags for me, cheap and easy to use and the treats don't fall out if I have to bend over.

I have a little mini fanny pack. I don't like the ones that are very open on the top because it makes it too easy for treats to fall out if you bend over and for my very quick dog to try to steal a quick snack :rolleyes:

Anybody have one of those snap open treat & clicker pouches from the active dog site that poodleholic posted? Or any others that snap open or closed. I'm interested in how they work.

I use a plastic bag in my pocket but it is hard to get my hand in especialy in winter with gloves on. I have lost a few when I pulled them most of the way out and didn't relise it. They then fall out as I walk. I walk in woods day and night and in all kinds of weather.

Belly packs have problems of access or they spill when I spill or when I wrestle with Rufus.

I thought it would be nice to have a bag that had a big mouth that a gloved hand could get into and would pop open but then snap shut on exit. It would then stay closed if you or it where upside down.

I had been using a zip-loc bag but it was hard to open and close fast enough. I bought a $3 leash-mounted bag that works great (it has large pockets, plenty of room for various treats and poop bags). I used it on my 16' retractable tape-style leash (for potty outings) before we had the fence installed... now I don't use that leash that much so I ordered another cheap-but-does-the-job bag with a belt clip and a ring where you can hook a key, clicker etc.

I'm not the kind of person who will spend $30 on a gadget if something like a zip-loc bag will work just as well, but it's well worth spending a few dollars on something that works much better.

I use the Premier Treat Pouch. Premier's customer service is *excellent* and they have replaced this one bag twice already, due to hinge issues.

Treat Pouch


I really like that the top snaps open and closed using just one hand. When the bags is closed, no treats fall out no matter what position I'm in. When it's open, it's large enough to hold enough treats for a couple of sessions, plus a clicker and a ball.

I bought several different pouches over the months, and this is the one I like the most.

That looks interesting. Is it rigid to hold it's shape? How does it hinge and snap? What would happen if you fell on it or it got body slammed by 120 lb dog?

I'm all about cheap. Both bags are $16 if they are quality products which Drea thinks, of one anyway, thats pretty cheap. I always think how much to make it. I would give almost any out door product a fair share of abuse.

I was thinking of trying to find some kind of hinged kitchen storge container for a rigid one. They are easy to get into and for walks around the block and such might work well.

Well, I wear it all the time, pretty much all day long, and I've sat on it many times. It holds up well; but more than that, as I previously said, Premier's customer service is spot on. They've replaced the one bag I purchased, twice. Outward Hound makes a similar version, so does Leerburg (at least they sell one), but I can't speak to either of their customer service and replacement policy.
