The size of your bag determines its capacity to store treats. Therefore, you should consider how big your dog is and how much he eats in one training session, as well as how long those sessions usually last. A treat bag that is too small will constantly need to be refilled, while one that is too big might make it hard to reach in for a treat.
Ease of Use
Bag openings come in many forms, such as zips, drawstrings and snap openers, and each serve different functions. Zipped bags keep treats neat and tidy but may be hard to open when dealing with a fussy dog, same with a drawstring bag. Snap openers, on the other hand, while easily accessible, are usually larger in size.
Attaching the Bag
Treat bags are usually worn with a belt, or comes with a belt clip. In some cases, they also come with a shoulder strap. Choosing the right attachment really comes down to personal preference, as well as the climate in your area, which pre-determines your clothing.
Nowadays we are obsessed with things being multi-functional, and treat bags are no exception. Most come with hooks, rings and clips for toys and training tools, as well as extra pockets and compartments for your valuables, so you don’t have to carry a lot of things around.
Whether you are a first time dog-owner and looking to purchase your first dog treat bag, or simply searching for a replacement or an upgrade, remember to consider all these things before choosing the right one for you and your canine friend.
