IS IT SAFE TO BACKPACK WITH DOGS?

With the right preparation and planning, you can set you and your dog up for a fun and memorable time in the backcountry. We always recommend checking in with your vet ahead of your trip for any questions you might have specific to your dog's health.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN MY DOG CARRY IN A BACKPACK?

It's best to keep the total carrying weight (including the pack and its contents) under 25% of your dog's body weight. First-time barkpackers may want to go even lighter. And, as always, it's a great idea to check in with your vet.
Example: A 45-pound (20-kg) dog's pack should weigh no more than 11.25 pounds (5 kg) including food, water, gear, and the pack itself.

WHAT DO YOU DO WITH DOG POOP WHILE BACKPACKING?

Leave No Trace are our go-to pros on this topic, and they recommend that dog waste be packed out in poop bags. Regulations might differ depending on the wilderness area you are in. Check their website or call in and speak with a ranger before heading out.
