Scruff Dog in a Bag

Add On Resources:

A superb “out front” solo puppet that is great for object lessons. With their cute faces your audience will love them. They come in two different colours Scruff (Grey) and Rover (Brown). Your audience will enjoy a great learning experience with these fun characters.


Dog in a Bag puppets are ideal tools for Solo Puppetry. The bag enables you to teach object lessons with your character. Using objects to teach is nothing new, Jesus referred to everyday objects in his teaching. Having an object in the bag facilitates participation with someone from the audience and helps to fix the illustration and message into our memories. Also, the next time you use the puppet, the audience will want to know what is in the bag as soon as it appears! See our add-on resources for more ideas and inspiration!


Solo puppetry is where the puppeteer stands in front of the curtain or without any staging at all on the platform or stage in front of the audience. Using ventriloquism the puppets can speak or using the whispering technique they can talk to you, with you then sharing what they have said with the audience. Key to this being effective is having a believable relationship with your puppet. Your puppet should be like a best friend with their own character, habits and personality. By animating and interacting with the puppet discover for yourself the potential of this style of puppetry.


Approx. 40cm tall (when positioned as shown in picture) and is suitable for use by both adults and children.

Customer Feedback –
Dear One Way UK, I recently bought your Dog in a Bag puppet at the Christian Resources Exhibition in Glasgow. After using it with our Sunday School Children, I decided that it would be a great resource to encourage children in my school class to write. This has been wonderful and so successful that I introduced the puppet to a course for early literacy which I was addressing. At the end of the course many of the staff asked for your e-mail address so if there is a rush on Dog in a Bag I am responsible.
Thank you for a great resource both for church and school. I also found your session at the exhibition inspiring. God Bless you in your ministry. Elizabeth
