No one likes to leave the dog behind when going out for a hike, which is why more and more parks, forest preserves, national forests and recreation areas are opening up trails to dogs. Let your dog help out with a Kurgo Baxter Dog Backpack, a lightweight and durable pack that allows dogs to help carry their weight on the trail.
The pack comes with eight adjustment points to ensure a proper fit, and a large handle can help you pull your dog out of a jam. The pack is balanced for even weight distribution and comfort, making it easy to bring along treats, toys, a water bowl, first-aid supplies and anything else your dog might need when off the grid. The rear-mounted leash hook on the pack provides a more comfortable option when you must use a leash, and the backpack is made with all the same high-tech fabrics you’d expect on your own pack. There’s breathable mesh for better ventilation, padded straps and even a chest pad with a bottle opener. OK, the bottle opener is for you, but your dog will still love joining you on your next outdoor adventure.
