Hands down, among all of the training tools you can use, a dog treat pouch is one of the most valuable and highly recommended by professionals. Whether teaching the basics or developing advanced skills, how you time the delivery of training treats can make or break your training sessions.
Well-made K9 treat pouches easily attach to belts and waistbands, allow for the quick access to training treats (without the risk of spillage), and provide storage for additional items that can enhance each training session. Check out some of our traditional dog treat pouches: The PetSafe Treat Pouch, the Doggone Good Rapid Rewards Dog Training Pouch, and the Ruffwear Treat Trader.
PetSafe Treat Pouch
Dog training often results in slobbery hands and equipment. Aimed at creating a mess-free experience, PetSafe has designed an outstanding dog training treat pouch that is made with water-resistant materials.
Thanks to its built-in hinge, the PetSafe Treat Pouch can be opened easily and stays open to avoid repeat contact. Want to carry two different treats at the same time? This dog treat pouch has an interior partition that allows you to do exactly that!
Attachable to your tactical pants in a variety of ways, including a waist strap and a belt clip, carrying dog rewards in this treat pouch is effortless. Other noteworthy features include an external carabiner and a front pocket with VELCRO® closure.
Doggone Good Rapid Rewards Dog Training Pouch
Jam packed with awesome features, specifically tailored to the most serious of dog trainers, the Doggone Good Rapid Rewards Dog Training Pouch is easily a top pick. This dog treat pouch can be attached to your belt or waistband via a custom-made clip.
As one of the newest additions to our line of high-end dog training products, this treat pouch misses nothing. It boasts a super spacious, easy-to-open pouch, two side pockets (one with a dog waste bag dispenser feature), a large zippered back compartment, and a VELCRO®-sealed front pocket. The Doggone Good dog training treat pouch also shuts tightly, thanks to its magnetic closure.
Ruffwear Treat Trader
Delivering a fully hands-off training experience and a myriad of top-rated features, the ultra-durable Ruffwear Treat Trader treat pouch is another great pick. Worn around the waist, this dog training treat pouch can be secured to the handler using its sturdy belt (adjustable between 30 and 48 inches). It can also be attached to the Ray Allen K9 Trainer’s Belt.
The interior of the Ruffwear Treat Trader is easy to open and is constructed with a waterproof liner. Its exterior features a water-resistant shell, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze. Dog treats of nearly all shapes and sizes can fit into this roomy pouch.
What Are the Benefits of Dog Treat Pouches?
Handlers can significantly improve the overall training experience for themselves and for their dogs. Being able to quickly and easily retrieve treats for your dog while teaching valuable skills streamlines the learning process. Dogs are less distracted, and thus they learn more rapidly when correct behaviors are rewarded without delay.
As an alternative to your pockets or to treat pouches that can easily tip and spill, using one of the three recommendations we list here, will take the hassle out of each training session.
What’s the Best Way to Use Each Dog Treat Pouch?
Amateur and professional dog trainers alike know the importance of using dog rewards, such as toys and treats, for positive reinforcement while teaching skills. From preparing your dog for agility work to hardcore police K9 duties, individuals who opt to use treats should use a well-made treat pouch during every single training session with their dog.
