The AUDWUD Silicone Dog Treat Pouch is a soft, pliable silicone treat pouch that’s perfect for short walks and training sessions.

I’m a huge fan of this treat pouch for one specific reason – I’m lazy! This pouch is by far the easiest to clean of all the best dog treat pouches we’ve reviewed. It’s one of the only pouches that’s dishwasher safe, due to it being made of food-grade silicone.

Design

TLDR; Simple with no frills

The silicone treat pouch features a very simple design – it’s just a treat container, with no extra pockets, clips, or panels. I don’t consider the necessarily a drawback though.

When I first began reviewing treat pouches, I looked for pouches that could hold my phone, clicker, poop bags, etc.

However, for my simple dog walks around the neighborhood, I found I often just kept my phone in my pocket, even when I did use a treat pouch that had a cell phone pocket available. The pockets really weren’t essential for me!

Now, if you often walk without any pant or jacket pockets, or if you go on long hikes where you’ll want to bring lots of extra goodies like a portable water bowl or a fetch ball, you may want a bigger, more all-encompassing treat pouch.

But for simple walks, you may find that this one works just fine!

It’s also worth noting that this pouch is available in six different colors (navy blue, dark grey, yellow, pink, green, and sky blue). It’s definitely nice to see some fun color options, as most treat pouches don’t have this many style choices.

Attachment

TLDR; Waist clip attachment only

As far as attachments go, this pouch only has one attachment method – a waist clip. The waist clip isn’t the best quality in the world, but I found it to be fairly durable and more sturdy than most other treat pouch waist clips I’ve used.

In sampling a variety of treat pouches, I’ve found that waist clip pouches are best for when you have a very light jacket or no jacket.

If you have a thick winter jacket, it can be difficult to access the waist-attached treat pouch since it naturally will be covered by a puffier, bulkier coat.

Closure

TLDR; Magnetic closure with some flexibility

This treat pouch features a handy magnetic closure that makes it ridiculously easy to take out treats. The magnetic closure snaps back together right away, preventing stray treats from flying out.

I love that you don’t need to fiddle around with drawstrings to get a treat out – this is definitely one of the best treat pouches for speedy treat removal.

However, this does come with a slight disadvantage. Because the magnetic closure is fairly loose and generous with its clasp, while it’s easy to remove treats, it’s also easy to accidentally push the flimsy top flaps apart and have treats fall out when you are bending over.

This only has happened to me a handful of times, where one of the rubber top panels is pushed away and doesn’t clasp against the other magnet. However, when it did happen, it was kind of annoying because a few treats fell out!

Washing

TLDR; Easy to rinse off or toss in the dishwasher

One of the biggest benefits of this treat pouch is definitly how easy ot is to wash.

Most treat pouches require you to pull the lining inside out and hand wash the liner. Some allow for machine washing, but this will quickly wear away at some pouches, resulting in messy, frayed stitching.

Since the Silicone Treat Pouch is made of 100% BPA-free, food-grade silicone, it can just be tossed in the dishwasher and cleaned alongside your plates and bowls. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

This is especially beneficial if you use moist treats with your dog, like cheese or hot dog pieces. Dogs go crazy for stinky, wet treats. You’ll get much better results out of your training sessions with your dog when using high-value moist treats over dry kibble. The only drawback with wetter treats is that they make cleaning your treat pouch more difficult. That’s why this silicone pouch is perfect for high-value stinky treats!

Capacity

TLDR; Not too big, not too small

This treat pouch is on the smaller end of the treat pouch spectrum but is still able to hold approximately 1 1/4 cups of kibble.

Usually I find this treat pouch can hold the perfect amount of treat for taking on a walk where you might need them to desensitize and counter-condition for other dogs or strangers when working on leash reactivity. However, if you’re training loose leash walking or are attending a group training class, you’ll probably want a treat pouch with a larger capacity.

In Summary: A Solid Pick

This treat pouch is a great pick for owners who value ease-of-cleaning above all else and don’t need extra pockets or panels. The magnetic closure allows for quick treat dispensing and the single waist clip, while not leaving many other attachment options, is sturdy enough to suit most owners.
