Training treat bags - washable?

Stupid question, forgive me.

I have always used regular dog treats and sometimes mixed with a little kibble (taking on the flavor of the treats) in my training treat bags. The little roundish ones that clip onto a belt or pants, etc.

Recently decided to give the elcheapo hot dogs from wally world a shot, cut up into little pieces. Do I need to put them in a little baggie or something and then into the treat pouch? Or wont' the pouch get all gunky and nasty inside eventually growing all sorts of nastiness?

I quit using a treat pouch because it would get gunky and hard to access the treats. Where I use to train,there was someone selling fabric washable ones. I now just use a ziplock to store them during transport and throw the treats loose in my training vest, wash the vest.

I put messy treats into a sandwich bag before I put them in the treat bag.

I have a Gappay vest from Hallmark.Gappay French Vest

I tried to find a good fishing vest(pockets accessibility) but they are almost as expensive as a training vest! If you have a sporting good surplus, maybe check it out for fishing vest...

When we had wet treats, we used to use an empty yogurt container placed inside the treat bag. Even nicer if the container has a lid.

Rerun- if you have joined the advanced class, you might meet Mimi there. She has two little papillons (Oliver and Samson). She has a training pouch (round one) like you are talking about; it is a pink and black faux fur. I made that pouch for her. I made it by buying a normal one, ripping it apart, and using it as a pattern. I can tell you that of the three that I have ripped apart, those standard pouches (like the ones your trainer sells) are definitely washable. They're just nylon and lining material. I would tumble dry low, though.

WOW! That is one serious investment!

Your bag is definitely washable, just hand wash it with warm water or throw in the wash with a load on cold and air dry.

My bag has plastic lining that can just be wiped out. Its, uh, seen better days though if you hadn't noticed lmao. I'm thinking about making a new one soon. Or at least doing some repairs to mine.

The treat bags are washable, but I do what paulag1955 does. First put the treats in a ziplock, then the treatbag. Just saves on the laundry.
