Top Tips for Outfitting Your Dog With a Backpack

1. Determine the right pack weight for your pup.

  • Guideline: For a healthy, athletic dog, 25% of the dog's body weight is about right.

  • Puppies, older dogs, or dogs that aren't regularly active should carry less, typically 10%-15% of their body weight.

2. Fit the backpack on your dog first without weight and then again loaded up.

  • Packs fit a little differently once fully packed. Dialing in the fit is important for maximum comfort and reducing potential hotspots.
  • Do some shorter test hikes with and without weight in the pack.

3. Plan the packing list.

  • Choose obvious things: food, bowls, doggy first aid, 2 or 4 dog boots, and treats!

4. Keep the weight as evenly distributed as possible.

  • A well-balanced load is important for comfort, reducing potential injuries, and reducing the chances of the pack shifting.
  • Keep heavy things on the bottom of the pack and lighter items at the top.

5. Don't put anything too important in the dog's pack.

  • Keep your car keys, wallet, and mobile phone with your own gear.
