Does anyone know of any online stores for doggy saddle bags?? Hiking season is coming and Iwant to get some backpacks for Meik and Kita. I want to make sure they are light weight enough for them and comfortable, the ones I have seen at Petsmart are bulky and kinda heavy!
Thanks

I got the Outward Hound Quick Release Backpack. It looks like it's much bigger than those Wolf ones.. I got it from here:

But it must be cheaper somewhere else.

I love it, but you have to make sure both sides are equally full because if they aren't, the dog ends up lob-sided.

It's basically a harness with a slightly padded top that is covered in velcro, and the backpack velcros and snaps onto the top. It's good for if your dog is looking hot, you just rip the top off and give her a rest. The only thing it's missing is a handle on the top for us, when we are carrying it.

I like the outward hound one. I'm holding off buying one till after woofstock though. Might find one that is unique or more fun coloured, lol.

Wish all OH stuff came in pink, and not just a few things, *tear*

I was wondering too. But it sounds like it's a howling good time!

(OK, that was my attempt at a joke. I know it was bad. I'll give up my career as a stand up comedian now. :o )

It's a toronto pet festival, tons of vendors, etc.. outdoors and you are more than welcome to bring your pet. I'm trying to not buy Cider anything, so If I see fun unique stuff their I can go wild.

Yeah, but Alberta seems to have more agility events, easier access to non snarky flyball people.. Has orgs for events that won't touch Ontario..

*tear* we are sorta even, lol.

Never been but I'm pumped to find new stuff and hopefully a backpack.. (in pink) lol.

Medium OH backpack was on sale at Petsmart for 35 today. I would have gotten it except they have a weird lacking selection of everything OH lately..
And it only came in green *cries*

hmm.. so to determine if a harness is good or not, it has to properly fit his dog? lol

I like the small neopaws one though.
