Barking Bags is a relatively new company selling bags to make responsible dog walking safe and convenient. In 2021 we won the Best New Business at the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) Awards.
Barking Bags were also nominated in two other categories at the Pet Industry Federation Awards (PIF) and were finalists in three categories at the Pet Quip awards.
Designed with input from young British fashion designers these stylish and multifunctional bags offer the wearer the flexibility to use them cross body or as a bum bag, helping dog walkers to carry everything they need without compromising on style. They are weatherproof and suitable for any climate or environment.
Barking Bags were launched at CRUFTs and met with high acclaim. Customers love the treat pockets, poo bag dispenser, mesh pockets for water and soggy toys, a safe place for your mobile and other special features.
They come with compostable poo bags and food samples, packaged here in the UK at MK SNAP - a local charity working with adults with learning difficulties.

Retail Trade Information
Barking Bags are the original award-winning British Company offering a range of dog walking bags.
A growing number of retail customers and charities have expressed an interest, asking if we are able to offer a wholesale option. Until now, we have been unable to do so. However, thanks to advice and investment following our appearance on Dragons’ Den, we have been able to start working with a manufacturer, recommended by Sara Davis and her team. The manufacturer is now able to produce a limited range of bags at prices that makes them attractive for retailers.
If you take the opportunity to make retail purchases, we will direct customers to you and make the most of social media advertising to raise your profile too. We are planning to use the opportunity afforded to us following our appearance on the BBC to roll out a campaign throughout 2022, aimed at encouraging dog walkers to consider their responsibility in reducing dog fouling and the dangers associated with not dealing with dog waste appropriately.
In the lead up to Crufts 2022, we are offering the best-selling products to our retail clients. The Black Bag with reflective straps and the Blue Paw Print vegan bag. Other bags will be available later in the year.
The Original Blue Paw Print Bag RRP Currently £39.99
The original blue paw print bag with an extra wide, breathable mesh side pocket, is suitable for carrying the bagged unmentionable stuff or wet balls or toys.
These bags come with fabric edging, rather than leather, which make them attractive to vegan and vegetarian customers. These funky designs are eye catching and very popular.
The bags are made from quality waterproof synthetic material and lined with a waterproof fabric. This waterproof outdoor PVC paw print fabric has a polyester base with a PVC backing. This fabric can simply be wiped clean with a damp cloth, using mild detergent if required.
These unisex bags are clearly made with dog walkers in mind. As with all our bags, they are multifunctional, with two breathable side pockets, to hold a water bottle, balls or soggy toys. There is an easily accessible section for treats, a handy poo bag dispenser, pocket for your hand sanitiser, a large inside compartment for all your essentials which can be sealed using the simple drawstring and a pocket on the back large enough for most phones.
They are designed as a cross body bag and the strap is both comfortable and extendable. However, the they also have clips at the back allow the user to attach the bags to their own belt. The metal carabiners on the front of the bag are to feed your imagination, for whistles, clickers, or collapsible bowls. They aren’t designed for clipping dogs to as they could rip if used in this way.
|Bag Width||22cm (32cm including pockets)|
The strap can extend to 130cm in length
The New Black Bag RRP Currently £44.99
Currently our best seller, this bag includes features recommended by our customers. The Black Bags are available for wholesale, but we also sell a cerise and midnight blue on the website.
What makes the new range of Barking Bags special?
The new bags have extra features, including fluorescent straps and a draw string sealable main compartment to help make walking safer, especially when the dark winter nights draw in. They are made from quality water resistant fabric and are multifunctional so you can adapt them to meet your needs. They all have breathable side pockets to hold a water bottle, balls or soggy toys. There is an easily accessible section for treats, a handy poo bag dispenser, pocket for your hand sanitiser, a large main compartment for all your essentials and a pocket on the back for your phone or keys.
The new range have the following features:
An extra-wide extendable side pocket which is useful for bagged unmentionable stuff or for carrying toys
Luminous fabric on the strap for extra visibility in the dark
A shoulder pad for added comfort
Waterproof inner lining in the main body of the bag
A draw string extended lining offering extra security for items you carry
Smooth-running nylon zippers
As a cross body bag the strap is both comfortable and extendable. However, they also have clips at the back allow the user to attach the bag to their own belt and wear as a bum-bag. The metal carabiners at the front of the bag are useful to clip a panic alarm and a collapsible water bowl and they can hold toys, clickers, etc, We don’t recommend hanging keys on them as they sit outside the bag and they aren’t designed for clipping your dog to.
