Dog Backpacks Are Great for Long Walks and Hikes

It seems like our dog's have as many accessories as we do these days, especially when going for a long walk or hike. It's really only fair if they carry their own supplies, or at least some of it. Dog backpacks, like this one from Mountainsmith, are perfect for having your dog carry some of the supplies.

These doggy saddle bags are designed specifically for the canine body. As long as you follow the instructions to ensure the proper fit, your dog will be able to wear this backpack all day without any discomfort or chaffing. The 4-point adjustable chest harness is equipped with a padded sternum strap for added comfort.

The Mountainsmith K-9 Dog Pack has two zippered pannier pockets, a metal D-ring attachment to hook up to a leash, and air mesh panels against the dog's body for ventilation purposes. It also has reflective trim on the front, rear and side panels.
