What dog walking bag do you have?

Quite new to dog ownership <eyes DDog thoughtfully) and when we go on walks i’m currently carrying my handbag (vape, phone, purse, car keys, tissues, lip salve etc) and a bag-for-life with dog kit (poo bags, emergency wipes, spare balls, treats).

I’ve realised I need a proper dog-walking bag. Waterproof, wipe-clean, cross-body, with loads of pockets. If it has a strap that I can use for carrying a massive Chuckit that would be a big bonus.

Does anyone have anything like this, and if so where can I get one?

Thank you!

Gosh! None!

I have a poo bag that is attached to the lead. In one pocket I have my phone and keys. In the other I have a pouch of treats. Job done!

Gorgeous pup by the way!

I think both DDog and I are quite high maintenance grin He’d go spare if I didn’t bring the balls and the Chuckit, and i’d go spare without my phone/vape/coffee cup (another thing i’ve just remembered). We go on long walks if that’s any excuse

Thank you grin His handsome face makes most of this worthwhile (springers are absolutely insane - 50% of the dog walkers I meet say ‘ho ho, you’ve got one of them! You’re brave!’)

. I wear a coat , poo bags and spare ball in one pocket , keys , phone and inhaler in another . I carry the ball thrower with one ball in it and dog carries the other spare ball . In the summer I use a very small mountain warehouse x body pouch and the pockets of whatever shorts / dress I’m wearing .

This time of year coat pockets are a godsend and full of dog paraphernalia

In the summer when wearing clothes with not as many pockets I wear a rather unsexy but bloody useful bumbag

I use a Converse stash bag. Pretty much everything you want-cross body, water proof, lots of sections. Is very handy!
My chuckit gets hidden up my coat sleeve (slightly awkward I know! 😀) because maisymutt gets very excited when he sees it. 😀

I bought a second hand brady cartridge bag off ebay. Just the right size for all the essentials and goes well with barbour wax jackets, if you're into that look. (Which you can also get for your dog).

Yep, I am the same I am afraid. Wear a ski jacket with 50 million pockets at the moment.
Pocket 1 has dog treats, 2 has poo bags.
Side pocket has phone and a couple of quid for emergency chocolate.
Ball chucker (if I take it) goes into big pocket, with the 'stem' slotting into a pouchy pocket.
Leads, when they are allowed off (i have 2 labs) go around my neck.

In summer, i use a bum bag for essentials when I dont have enough pockets😁

I have a cross body nylon bag with lots of zip pockets I bought on ebay. It is big enough for a bottle of water, several tennis balls, tissues, poo bags and a gazillion other things, but the external zip pockets mean that my keys are safely zipped away along and things like my whistle have a place.

Of course all my casual coats smell of dried sprats and theres a poo bag everywhere!

Ooh converse stash bag looks great, thank you. (Cartridge bags also look great but a bit £££!)

I use a small Kipling cross body bag, I have 2 infact- one blue and one red. Ideal for all doggie accessories needed on walks . Plenty of pockets and zips, machine washable if needed .

CMOT ‘nylon’ appears to be the magic word - was googling ‘waterproof’ and getting nowhere - thank you

He is gorgeous!
I think you need a brown bag to match him grin!
I have an Adidas cross body bag - like the ones all the teenage boys have (I'm a middle aged woman!).
Catch Kitson do some nice ones if you want floral and they look waterproof.

I need one OP, I've got 2 spaniels (glutton for punishment) and have pockets so full of poo bags, whistles, balls, and treats that there is never room for my keys or phone and I have given up even attempting to zip my coat up!

TresDesolee Mon 04-Nov-19 19:55:13

Thanks 8mile. Am now in the happy position of having too many to choose from - I shall add a few to my Christmas list...

I have a responsible owner dog walking bag, does the job well

TresDesolee Mon 04-Nov-19 20:06:44

Ooh at Responsible Owner - I knew someone must have realised there was a gap in the market

Look it up on google, had mine since it was very first launched on Facebook think they may now be sold through larger stores now. It's still going strong, been through the Battersy muddy dog challenge twice wink and the washing machine a few times I've 3 dogs so with that comes lots of poo bags and balls. I find it's just right to pop car keys, phone and water bottle on and not have to take a handbag with me.

Bumbag with two pockets. Phone, poo bags, penknife, treats, clicker, spare slip lead... Space for a ball.

Big jacket with lots of pockets but mine are not into balls so don't need to bring that, could probably fit 2 tennis balls too though smile

HotdogSausagedog Tue 05-Nov-19 09:26:26

This is mine smile I've tried across body ones but find they get in the way (especially for poo picking!!) I can fit so much in and always have easy access to what I need. I would highly recommend a backpack smile

(And it doesn't make you hot in summer! )
