The Citizen Canine is a small bag designed to come along when you take your best friend for a walk. The treat compartment makes up the top two-thirds of the bag; the top edge of the pouch is stiffened to remain open for easy access, but closes with a drawstring so the treats stay inside otherwise. The treat portion is also big enough to fit a tennis or similar sized ball (or toy) if your buddy is more inspired by fetch than by food.

Poop bags dispense discreetly from a soft plastic grommet on the lower back side of the Citizen Canine; there’s zippered access to the inside of the Citizen Canine where a clever metal pin assembly retains the roll of bags so they can roll easily. We ship the Citizen Canine with one roll of compostable BioBags; more are available for purchase here.

On first glance it may seem like a simple little bag, but on further inspection you’ll be impressed how many cool features we’ve packed in to such a small amount of real estate. For us, making such a small, feature-filled bag is a bit like working in nano-technology: the cutting and sewing gets more challenging as it all gets smaller.

There’s a front zippered pocket sized to fit an iPhone (room enough for ID/credit card/cash too) AND a back zippered pocket sized for keys, change, or a clicker, so you can go out with the Citizen Canine and nothing more. Plus, below the label on the front of the bag is a loop of nylon webbing so you can attach a Guardian Light for use after dark.
