4. Drawstring Treat Bag

Training a dog not only helps her be better behaved but can build her confidence and make her a happier pup in the long run, and treats are crucial to most positive dog training programs. If you’ve ever been to training class, trying to wrangle your dog, follow the trainer’s instructions, and juggle a treat bag can be a little distracting. Check out this tutorial for making a treat bag that clips onto your belt!

Nerdy? Yes! But freeing your hands means you can focus on petting and rewarding your dog for learning a new trick!

Have you guys made any DIY treats, toys, or accessories for your precious pup? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

  1. Hello – While browsing for homemade puppy projects, I found this page on your site. Such great ideas. Thought you might be interested in a very green DIY puppy project I am experimenting with at the moment. I wrote up a blog post which describes a variation on a Wee wee pad, which doesn’t need to be sent to a landfill, but can instead be used in a garden once its been ‘loaded’!
