Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Best Hiking Dog Pack   Sun Mar 25, 2012 7:44 pm

I have seen several pics with dogs hiking with the backpacks. Since I'm finally able to get out and walk the trails with the dogs, I was wondering what the best one to get is.

This is what I need it to be able to do:
-hold clip on water bottles for the dog/me
-carry medicine and first aid things
-carry collapsable bowls
-other misc items as needed.

I carry my own backpack, but since I have to carry special items in my backpack, it gets too heavy with everyone else's stuff lol.

Any suggestions or advice would be helpful!

I will let the seasoned vets comment on why you should get one, but I can tell you Ruff Wear makes great products. We have the Palisades Pack, Top Rope Collar, and Knot-a-Leash, and all are top notch!

We have the ruffwear pack, and it is great. Do not get the cheap outward hound pack from petsmart, it didn't hold up for a mile walk around the block with us before the zippers fell off the sides! It is definitely worth the extra money to get a quality pack.

I'd second ... third ... whatever number we're on the Ruffwear packs. After that, REI like Jen said.
