    My left shoulder is playing up, probably kicked off by granddaughter-cuddling, and I've been told by my physio to avoid carrying my dog bag over my shoulder. Which is doable in coat weather, when I have enough pockets for everything, but a pain at this time of year when I need a coat in the morning and not in the afternoon. And I can't find my bumbag....

    This set me to wondering what everyone carries around on dog walks. What's in your bag/pockets? This is what I usually carry:

    house keys
    phone
    emergency mask
    emergency cash
    poo bags
    treats: kibble & high value
    Piriton (in case of adder bites)
    whistle
    tick remover
    nail clippers (sometimes I can get a sneaky clip in when Jasper has a mid-walk snooze)
    sling fashioned from a bag for life in case his legs give way
    water bottle in warmer weather

    My house key and whistle are on a keyring attached to the lead handle. Phone, poo bags and treats are about all else I carry. If it is very hot I take water but that's almost never when we are at home. I have a light rucksack if I need to carry more. Right now I'm carrying my passport, Timber's old passport, his vaccination certificate and animal health certificate as we are waiting to see a vet about a Spanish passport for him to save us getting an AHC for every trip.

    I have a falconer's vest (you can get gundog trainers' vests that are similar) which has more pockets than you can shake a stick at, some zipped for keys/phone, some waterproof and wipe-clean. Not cheap but last a long time.

    What I carried:

    CO2 spray for fending off attacking dogs and I have broken dog fights up with it too, but you have to know what you're doing with the latter, and I wouldn't recommend anyone else doing it.
    Small change purse
    Poo bags
    Tissues
    Keys
    Spare mask
    Treats
    Spare lead
    Usual lead
    Whistle
    Phone (switched off)
    Small water bottle + collapsible lightweight bowl in hot weather. Not that I exercised in hot weather, but old dogs sometimes get thirsty.

    I think the Piriton is a very good idea.
