    What do you take with you on walks and what sort of bag do you use?

    Poo bags in one coat pocket, treats in the other.

    I can't be bothered with bags, I like pockets too. In fact, I'm terrified to carry a bag now because I'm so unaccustomed to having one, I'd leave it behind and not realise.

    Pockets in winter, bum bag in summer, usually with poo bags, treats, phone and sometimes camera,

    If I'm out for any length of time, I may take drink and/or snack

    Depends short walk I just wear a coat with poop bags and keys. Longer walks I have a rucksack this carries the boys water, balls, poo bags treats. In the summer I carry so much water I practically tip over.

    I use quite a large bum bag type designed for dog walking.
    I always carry poo bags, treat pouch, a toy, clicker, tweezers (for thorns), rectal diazepam (Jessie had some seizures last year), a packet of tissues and a spare slip lead (I often forget to take a lead).

    Normal daily walk just poo bags, phone, keys and tissues in pockets.

    If a trip out, then I use a small rucksack so I can take Jack’s water, chews and a coat plus my money, oat milk & specs.

    I usually have my phone in my pocket whether dogs are with me or not. Most of my coats have poo bags in the pockets. So basically the only extras when walking the dogs are the dogs and their leads.

    Like others it depends on whether it's a normal daily walk or more of an adventure or training walk. I either just use my pockets and take phone and poo bags, or I'll take a bum-bag with some treats in, or I'll take my light rucksack with a couple of toys and water. I have got a training vest that I use on the odd occasion too and that has loads of pockets!

    20m long lead
    10m flexi lead

    Collapsible bowl
    Harness
    Puller rings

    I'm a bit mad :D

    Usually for walks near the village or in the surrounding fields, just me, the dogs,their leads and treats .

    I don't even bother locking the door, have no need of poo bags and as we don't get a signal no point in taking my mobile!

    I always take poo bags with me and use them, when we go to training or are walking in town or the grass surrounding the hypermarkets etc.

    At home though it seems pointless picking up poo when you're in the middle of a field stepping on deer and rabbit droppings and where the only thing that will step in it is a tractor!

    At the back of my land there's a 8 foot high manure heap that most dogs would give their back teeth to play in!:eek:

    I love 'what do you do' threads.

    Local walks straight out of my door I take my treat pouch. It's a Doggone Good one with multiple pockets, so I also have a clicker and a supply of poo bags in there.

    Anywhere that involves a car journey first I take my backpack. Depending on plans I may leave my backpack in the car rather than taking it with me, but it also has: water bottle, collapsable bowl, Cad's warm cape, minimal dog first aid kit, and I'd usually have a spare short lead in there as longer walk = long line.

    If I’m walking near my house then just treats and phone in my pocket. If it’s warm then I have a small bag. I always have a dickie bag attached to the handle of a lead.

    When I’m going out then for my dogs I take the above plus a tiny pair of scissors. They’ve had burrs stuck on them before and it’s easier to cut them out. I also take a water bottle where the lid is also the bowl and dog wipes. I carry it in a bag that turns into a dog bed if I’m going to one of the country parks for when I go to a cafe.

    In the boot of my car I have a bag with everything I could possibly need including a first aid kit.

    I dont wear a jacket unless its pissing it down, so i have to take a bag.

    I have a 12lt Salomon backpack with a water bladder. I take water (obviously), Neds tuggy, tissues for my constantly runny nose, a waterproof coat for me and one for Ned, a small sports towel, a flask of coffee, a spare lead, high vis bands and tabbard, camera and sometimes a snack (porridge at the moment).

    We are walking 15-18 miles at a time though, so 'stuff' is important.

    Its also great for picking up litter.
