This is a sewing dog craft, but it is a pretty easy one. It only takes about ten minutes to make this travel homemade dog training treats pouch.

Travel pouches make it nice for teaching walking on a leash, manners around others, how to behave in cars and buildings, and so on.

This is a pretty small pouch making it great for traveling. However, if you did want a larger one, you can use all the same steps and just use a larger piece of fabric and cord.

If you could use a recipe for dog training treats, here are a few to try.

How To Make This Pouch:

Cut fabric to the size needed. You will need a 7″x4″ piece.

Pin fold along top edge

Lay the fabric face down. Along the 4-inch side folded it over on one end by 1/4 inch and pin in place. You only need to pin it so that it is about 1 inch long. Do the same on the other side.

Sew down the edge you pinned

Sew that fold down sewing close to the raw edge. Do both sides.

Pin fold along long side

Now on the 7-inch side at that same end, fold it over by about half an inch all the way across and pin it in place.

Sew that fold all the way across close to the raw edge.

Fold over and pin bottom and one side

Now fold the fabric in half along that stitched area so the right sides are touching each other. Pin along the side and bottom edges.

Sew down the side starting at the stitching of that cross stitch. You don’t want to sew those open ends closed where you stitched. When you get to the bottom, turn the corner and sew across the bottom as well. Be sure to do a backstitch at the start and finish.

Turn the pouch right side out.

Feed cord through the opening

Feed the cord through the opening around the top.

feed cord through toggle

Run both ends of the cord through the toggle.

Tie the two ends of cord together

Then knot the ends of the cord together and you are done.

How To Use The Travel Homemade Dog Training Treats Pouch:

Fill the pouch with small dog training treats. Then slide the toggle down to draw the bag closed while not in use.

You can either keep it in your pocket or loop it around the handle of the leash. You can attach it to the leash in two different ways. Either by putting the cord through the handle then looping the pouch back through the cord.

Or you could also clip something like a carabiner clip to the end of the cord to clip it onto the handle of the leash.
