Best dog training treat bag ever
|July 3, 2011||Posted by woofhausen under Stuff We Love, Training + Behaviour|
Training with treats seemed to be out of style these days. For my little Pug though, treats been the best way to show what action I am seeking, particularly when introducing a new command. But how do I stay consistent if I can’t bring my treats with me when extending training outside of the home (and dishes to hold the treats)
Carrying treats in my pocket or some tourist style fanny pack (ick) just not really my style. Alternatively, nicer fanny packs are just too good to be used for dog treats.
After fumbling with ziplock bags, and designating some pocketed track pants for dog training only, I found these Outward Hound treat bags. Amazing! They that lays flat on my side and has hinges that props the bag open when I need to reach for treats. When I am done, tap the edge inwards towards my hips to close. Extra pockets too for poop baggies, keys and cellphone. Delightful. I realized this is like the type Victoria Stillwell uses on her show, “It’s Me or the Dog”. Feel a sense of approval just by bait bag association.
Simple, easy peasy, and I don’t look like a 1980s tourist (with the fanny pack) or have random spillage with the barrel style treat bags. This makes me wonder why most Petsmarts in the GTA are not carrying these.
I found mine at my local Global Pets. Visit myoutwardbound.com for more info or other retailers.
