Product Review: Doggone Good Rapid Rewards Pouch

Doggone Good has packed a surprising number of features into their Rapid Rewards treat bag. The main compartment has a magnetic closure that is very easy to fumble open or shut with my hands full of things. The interior liner is rigid enough that treats don't disappear into folds, and there is even a little pocket inside that closes with velcro for separating types of treats. There are little pockets on the sides, a bigger pocket in the front, and a zippered compartment in back. That's a lot of pockets. The bag also has a D-ring on the outside, a belt clip on the back, and comes with a waist belt in case your clothes aren't very belt-clip-friendly. This bag is available in seven different colors and can be personalized with your name or business logo.

This is it, I've found the very best bait bag in the world. It's a bit big, but it's everything I've ever wanted and more. I didn't know I was missing an interior pocket, but now I realize it's the greatest thing ever. I can have a bag full of kibble with a little pocket of freeze dried liver treats for major jackpots. No more fishing through a bag of mixed treats for just the right goody.

I really love the way this bag holds its shape. It stays open when I need it open, and closed when I need it closed. The opening is big enough for my whole hand. Opening and shutting it requires gross motor movements, not fingers. I can drop a tennis ball or my Stibbar leash in there and it just sits conveniently on top of everything.

Admittedly, I have not yet found a use for every pocket on this thing. There are normally a few folded up poo bags in the back zippered pocket, and I always keep a clicker in the front. I could probably keep an emergency backup clicker in a side pocket, we can never have too many clickers.

Pros: Belt clip and weight distribution means it actually stays on my pockets/waistband/whatever. It has never fallen off. Enough pockets for training doodads. Stays open or shut as needed. Big opening at top. Magical interior pocket in main compartment allows for two different types of treats. Very durable. Light interior color makes it easier to see inside. My purple bag doesn't show dirt.

Cons: Obviously it's pretty big and bulky, doesn't hide nicely in a pocket and screams "I AM A DOG TRAINER!!!" to the general public. Or maybe the general public just thinks it's a weird fanny pack. Either way, it's definitely not helping me pass as normal.

Bottom Line: So convenient I just sort of wear it around all the time so I can drop stuff in as needed. Leash? Poo bags? Ball? Clicker? Treats? Supertreats? I've got all that right on hand.
