What are the best treat bags ?

Hey guys,
I'm working on a project in school, i have to design and make something for an animal. I decided to make a treat bag for dogs.

I thought it would be a good place for inspiration to come here and ask you guys what you think are the best treat bags out there and what ones don't work.

i don't want it to look to industrial or tacky...
so far i was thinking of making something sort of like a clutch in a dog shape with a key ring/ clip on the tail to attach to the leash...

please help & thanks in advance!

unfortunately, it is the utilitarian approach here that works out the best, at least IME... i have one like this

and i LOVE it, in order for me to buy/recommend a different style, it would have to be pretty amazing...

I use a simple bag with a drawstring close and a clip that I can attach to my waistband or a pocket. The key is one-hand operation and not having to hold onto it or fumble around to get anything out of it. Timing is very important when training with treats - you have to be fast for the dog to make the connection between the behavior and the reward.

Still haven't found the perfect bag, though. Wish list:

- hard plastic removable interior liner for easy washing (vs. nylon that can get gross after repeated use with messy treats like cheese or bits of meat).

- better way to attach it to my clothing, e.g. maybe a caribiner so it won't pop off

- easier in and out. When training I tend to leave the top open because it takes too long to open and close the bag. I would prefer a self-closing bag. Not sure how you would make that, though.

As you can see from my comments style is meaningless. Function is everything.

Good luck and let us know what you come up with!

I have the same one Fawkese has. I like it better than the drawstring one I used to have because its stays open and closed firmly, and it comes with its own belt. Tho either is better than your pockets.

i got mine from amazon too, it has the bigger pocket in the front, if you don't want to use the belt, it has a clip, it has a key ring thing that i clip my clicker to and a little zipper pocket in the back, i LOVE it, i can also put my old pouch on the belt with it, gives me lots of flexibility, and pockets!

I'd prefer blue (color of my jeans) actually, the idea being it blends in and the bag itself doesn't become a cue.

Ironically enough, the hinge on my bag broke like three days ago...grrr
