IS IT OKAY TO TAKE MY DOG HIKING?
With the right preparation and planning, yes, you can set you and your dog up to have a blast hiking together. We always recommend checking in with your vet if you're just getting started to cover any questions you might have specific to your dog's health.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN MY DOG CARRY IN A HIKING BACKPACK?
It's best to keep the total carrying weight (including the pack and its contents) under 25% of your dog's body weight. You will want to go even lighter if your dog is just getting used to the pack. And, as always, it's a great idea to check in with your vet to make sure your dog is old enough or healthy enough to wear a pack.
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 HIKING?
Leave No Trace are our go-to pros on this topic, and they recommend that dog waste be packed out in poop bags.
