Baxter Dog Backpack
Why we like it:
The Baxter Dog Backpack is the perfect size to not overload your dog carrying gear in their weight class. Not to mention the back d-ring is also a bottle opener! We love the customization built into the pack to move saddles bags to adjust for weight similar to a human backpack. The padded spine support also sits higher on the dogs back to take pressure off the middle of the spine for safety and comfort. This pack is VERY well designed. We use this for our pup! It is important to note that if you have a medium sized dog both Baxter sizes should fit, it comes down to the size of the saddle bags and the type of gear you want your pup to carry. Remember, your dog should only carry 20% of their own weight so if you have a 50 pound pup their maximum load should be 10 pounds.
From the Manufacturer:
Great for everyday use or backpacking adventures. Built strong to withstand rugged outdoor conditions, it has 8 different adjustment points to get the proper fit for any dog. It includes a rear-mounted leash hook that works like a harness for pups that need to be on their lead. The ergonomic padded spine support contours to the dog’s back for a comfortable fit and provides weight distribution for the two saddlebags. The pack offers space to store all of your canine's travel essentials such as food, treats, toys, first-aid supplies and travel bowls. Includes a large handle to help dogs over rock scrambles or extract them from water.
