I got my dachshund Lucyfurr 6.5 years ago, we lived in an apartment at the time and our landlord who didn't really want us having a dog said that we had to pick up after her, which wasn't a problem but I found myself forgetting baggies when I would run her down the stairs and outside to go. There was also the problem of the heavy door slamming shut behind me so I needed to make sure I had my keys.

I came up with a pouch attached to her leash to house the baggies, some treats (because I was house breaking her at the time) and attached an extra key so I would never get locked out in the snow again. I've made a few new ones, I still have the first one I made, it's lasted longer than her leashes.

Yes I used vinyl, makes keeping it clean easy.

It's a simple zipper pouch, you just figure the size you want to make the pouch, I determine this on the size of the zipper I'm going to use. I cut one piece of vinyl, sew the zipper onto the ends. Open the zipper half way and pinch the ends together and sew up the sides. The pouch is now inside out, I unzip the rest of it and then just turn it right side out.

This is great! I can't say how many times I have locked myself out with the dog just staring at me like I am dumb because I won't let her in. I like the extra key idea the best. I am going to get on that!

Great idea. I may have to remember this once we get a puppy.
