When man’s best friend goes with you on a camping or hiking trip, a dog backpack is a great way to let your pet carry some of the load, as it just makes sense that he should pull his own weight. Of course the size of the backpack your dog can handle depends entirely on how big he is. Not all versions of the dog backpack are made for the dog to carry items in, and there are a few products that are actually a backpack for you to wear and carry your small dog in. You should certainly have an idea of what you’re looking for before you purchase anything.
