With a Ruffwear dog packs and dog backpacks, your dog can join you on even more outdoor adventures! Some dogs just love to have a job on the trail, and you might appreciate not having to shoulder the whole load. Our backpacks for dogs come in several different sizes with lots of adjustability for an optimal fit.

Our different hiking packs for dogs carry different amounts of gear and supporting varying lengths of adventures – from day hikes to multi-day treks, and for simply carrying hydration or all the essentials for an backcountry living. Each of our styles has been trail tested and designed from a dog's perspective, distributing the weight evenly over their shoulders where it's most comfortable. Some things you'll find in our dogs' packs for a day hike: a bowl, treats, water, pick-up bags, dog boots. Ready to hit the trail?

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.
