Frequently Asked Questions
With the right preparation and planning, yes, you can set you and your dog up to have a blast hiking together. We always recommend checking in with your vet if you're just getting started to cover any questions you might have specific to your dog's health.
It's best to keep the total carrying weight (including thepackand its contents) under 25% of your dog's body weight. You will want to go even lighter if your dog is just getting used to the pack. And, as always, it's a great idea to check in with your vet to make sure your dog is old enough or healthy enough to wear a pack.
Example: A 45-pound (20-kg) dog's pack should weigh no more than 11.25 pounds (5 kg) including food, water, gear, and the pack itself.
Leave No Trace are our go-to pros on this topic, and they recommend that dog waste be packed out in poop bags.
