Maybe Your Dog can carry his own weight!
Many of us enjoy taking our furry friends with us on trips and walks and it can be great fun. But what about the dog’s water and drinking bowl? Do you simply add that to your own pack?
There is no reason your dog can’t carry his/her own stuff, especially if he is not too small. For my husband and myself, our dog “Boaz” is plenty big enought to carry his own stuff at 130 pounds. Bo loves to go walking and hiking with my husband, but he does need to have water and something to drink out of just like my husband does. Recently Bo went along on a 10 mile hike and we decided that he needed to carry his own things. My husband jury-rigged a small human waistpack for him to carry across his shoulders but that didn’t work out so well – his movements made the pack slide around off his shoulders. So my husband went shopping to get him a “real” doggie backpack. Bo is rather large, so he had to go along to try it on. It just fits and is a little snug but works well without being too tight on him.
