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.

I'm looking into getting Qannik his own backpack. Does anyone else use one? If so, is there a weight limit I should be aware of with respect to how much he can carry? He's 14 months old and weighs about 52lbs.

Thanks for any insight!

I'm a big fan of Ruffwear packs. I have two Palisades for my dogs, and they are great. That's their biggest pack, so if you don't need that much space then one of the other two would be perfect.

Regarding weight limits, I try to keep mine below 20% of their body weight (~10lbs). Here is some good info:

Matt...so sorry for never responding to your post. I totally lost track of this! But, thank you for this information. I'm hoping to shop for one very soon. I actually had looked at this brand on-line and was happy with what I saw.
