Approach™ Dog Backpack

full-day hiking

    Selected: Orange Poppy

The Approach Pack is an everyday dog pack with excellent performance, fit, and functionality. It provides dogs with the ability to efficiently carry a load, generating instant four-legged motivation to explore. The integrated harness enhances fit, pack stability, and overall performance. Radial cut saddlebags create a passive compression system that is form fitting and better load carrying.

Combined with the lightweight materials and a streamlined design, the Approach backpack is comfortable and allows dogs to carry trail necessities on day hikes and light overnight adventures with their humans.

A good rule of thumb for how much dogs can carry in their packs is no more than 25% of their bodyweight. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and slowly work up to a heavier load as they get used to wearing the pack.
