The latest Dicky Bag innovation – a self-closing treat bag!
The Dicky Bag team have not only given us somewhere easy, soft and hygenic to carry those dog poo moments whilst still on our walks, now the design team has come up with my latest favourite for dog training.
The Dicky Bag Treat Bag has a slot in the top made in the same neoprene material as their other products. Easy open and easy close, by just reaching into the slot. I decided to put it on test and here are the results!
– Containment of treats when you walk, run, bend or move about whilst training.
We gave this the ultimate test. Taking four dogs out on our walk across fields and ditches, with each dog of varying height. An enthusiastic dog jumped up at the bag but nothing spilled out unlike my other trusty drawstring one which would have emptied. Result – excellent
– Access to treats
The Dicky Bag Treat Bag meant I could easily get to the treats (we used chopped up dried meat pieces mixed with kibble). As the treats pull out, the opening simply closes so you only get out what you are holding. No more fumbly treat delivery. Result – economical/no waste!
– Comfort and attachment to belt
The treat bag has a large, secure carabiner clip and is stitched firmly. It is lightweight so easy to forget you are wearing it, but I felt like it was securely clipped onto my belt. Result – phew!
– Quality and design
If you are anything like me, you leave treats in the bag and forget about them. This makes rediscovery always rather interesting! I found that because the Dicky Bag treat bag was a neoprene, it was so easy to clean and didn’t suffer at all. The flowery pink design still looks very nice although there are other designs available (a blue version and also camouflage, amongst others). Result – guilt-free cleaning and a nice looking bag no matter what I do to it. Price – not the cheapest on the market but the only one I am ever going to use from now on, so worth every penny as it is so future-proof and Karen-proof!
– Future trials
I tend to use my treat bags as search items and targets for my dogs when training them to move ahead, but the drawstring ones are too flimsy to allow them to pick them up for me. I am going to try the Dicky Bag version and see how this goes, as I think it is sturdy enough.
Dicky Bag have been asked if they do horse-sized ones so this is also in the pipeline. Each bag is hand made over here in Britain so, yes, I am biased, this is a terrific product and another leap forward in the dog training product world. Thank you Dicky Bag for making life easier for us!
