Doggy Backpacks

When Your Pup Needs A Lift

     Some dogs need a little more pampering, and if you want to take them on a long adventure you might need to carry them part of the way. It might also be easier to carry your smaller pup if you're headed to a crowded event. Having a pack will let you hold them more securely and to keep your hands free. 


     There are many great options, primarily falling into two categories: backpacks and slings. We rounded up a few of the best options to get you started on finding the right one for your pup. Keep in mind that these are all designed for smaller pups (we've never seen anyone carrying a German Shepherd around anyway :)). There are a lot of different brands and styles, and while we couldn't possibly cover them all, here are a few to get you started on your search. Let us know if you have a favorite and think we should add it to our list!
