Our PickPocket foraging bag is a fantastic addition to our range. Simply fill the pockets inside the bag with treats and let the foraging begin!

PickPocket Foragers are fully washable/tumble dryable fleece feeders in which dogs hunt for treats inside pockets. They are simple to use, easy to launder and bring all the benefits of foraging into your dog’s home.

Our PickPocket foraging bag is a fantastic addition to our range. Simply fill the pockets inside the bag with treats and let the foraging begin! If you want to add complexity to the foraging environment, add a Caterpillar, some pouches or bean bags. The foraging bag offers a rich foraging game by engaging the seeking circuit and exercising your dog’s natural instinct to sniff. The foraging bag can be taken ‘on the go’ as it has a handy carrying cord which, when the bag is fully open, is completely enclosed within the foraging bag and therefore poses no danger to your dog. It can also be used as a bag to tidy away foragers not being used, keeping it out of your dog’s way until next time.


Our foraging bag come in three sizes:

  • Small for dogs up to small terrier size such as JRT
    • 32 pockets, each pocket is 8cm deep x 15cm wide
    • Total size approx. 52 cm high x 60cm wide
  • Medium/large for dogs English Springer spaniel size and above (excluding giant breeds)
    • 30 pockets, each pocket is 8cm deep x 20cm wide
    • Total size approx. 60cm high x 60cm wide

Foraging bags are suitable for all ages and all breeds and can be successfully used by brachycephalic (flat faced) dogs. They are ideal mental stimulation for dogs on post-operative care, on restricted exercise or for those with reduced mobility due to arthritic conditions. Eating from the foraging bag can provide these dogs with a few minutes gentle weight-bearing exercise. Foraging games are especially beneficial to senior dogs with cognitive dysfunction and ‘golden oldies’ whose other senses may be in decline and who come to rely more on olfaction. The foraging blanket is especially suited to visually impaired dogs, senior dogs and puppies as the skill level required is easy yet the game is highly rewarding, satisfying and safe.

HAPPY FORAGING!

Warning! Some owners are concerned that their dog will chew the fleece, however most dogs find foraging so immensely rewarding that this instinct usually overrides their desire to bite the fabric. Please ALWAYS supervise your dog and follow the instructions for use on the packaging to minimise risk. No dog should be left alone with any of the PickPocket Forager range as ingesting fabric could lead to serious medical issues. If you have any concerns or suspect your dog has swallowed some fabric, please consult your veterinary surgeon immediately.

IMPORTANT!! PLEASE ONLY USE THE FORAGING BAG WHEN IT IS FULLY OPEN WITH YOUR DOG, SO THAT THE CARRYING CORD IS FULLY ENCLOSED WITHIN THE NECK OF THE BAG. DO NOT USE PARTLY OPENED.

PLEASE CONTACT US FOR FLAT FACED BREEDS AND TO DISCUSS CUSTOM FLEECES.
