My dog (a year and a half foxhound/labrador mix that I adopted a month ago) has developed severe separation anxiety, and according to Cesar Milan one of the solutions is to give him more exercise before I leave in the morning. Since a two hour walk before the hour of seven seemed a little excessive, I began looking for other answers to this dilemma.

The suggestion of a doggie backpack with filled water bottles or other weighted material (not too much, but enough to make the dog work harder) was presented to me. I loved the idea of giving my dog the workout he deserves without completely tiring myself out before a day at work to do it, and also the idea of him being able to carry his own water, food, toys, and treats on long hikes and camping trips once the summer months roll around. Therefore I began scouring Amazon for quality packs that weren't too overpriced. I was shocked to see some dog packs that cost more than the backpack I carried in college, but this one seemed to be of quality construction and was affordable to boot (and eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, which is a major bonus).

I am pleased to tell you that this product was everything I was hoping for and more. The straps are fully adjustable, so I got the perfect fit for my dog after only a couple of adjustments. You can even adjust where the saddlebags fall on the dog's flanks, so the pack can fit a wide range of dogs. The materials are also very high quality and I can tell that this was designed to be an item that gets ample use throughout its lifetime. I managed to squeeze two 32 oz Nalgene bottles, filled with water for weight, into the saddle bags, and I can't believe the change in my dog. He is calmer and more submissive, and his separation anxiety is already decreased.

Bottom line: if you are looking for a quality pack for your medium to large sized dog, BUY THIS ONE! The price is right and the quality is great!

I gave this only 4 stars for the simple reason, the sizing is a little off. I use it on a Staffie Bull Terrier (smallest of the pit bull breeds, 40lbs) and its a little large on her. But with that said, the bags stays in place while she walks 3 to 4 miles daily with 2-8oz bottles of water. She actually gets worn out, and if anyone owns any type of terrier breed you know these dogs go on forever. In addition, she loves to pull and comes from a long line of AKC registered award winning "weight pullers". Imagine how suprised I was to find NO MORE PULLING. She proudly walks right beside me with what seems like a purpose!

I love these bags, and this one has done the trick. I just ordered another one for my American Pit Bull Terrier, hopefully it will do wonders on her too :)

See my pics of Lady in Kurgo Wander Pack Dog Backpack (images 1 & 2) - July 2011 - I originally bought this backpack as a means to provide something that would be more energy-draining for my very active Husky-Shepherd mix, Lady, but it has turned out to be the catalyst for getting me involved in hiking with my girl. After a few minutes getting the straps adjusted to the correct length, Lady accepted it on her back immediately without weight and when I put some bottles of water in, it was like she became worklike and confident. I at first just put it on her for walks in the park but then we ventured onto a wilderness trail with full packs and she did great - the pack weighs 4 lbs (10% of her body weight) when we start - 2 bottles of water, water bowl, bug wipes, snacks for her, a couple of cheese sticks and some glucose tabs for me - she handles it like it is nothing. The pack fits well - Lady is small - 42-43 lbs - and the straps are adjusted almost to the smallest they can go. I especially like the broad back section that seems to distribute the weight evenly, and she learned her new 'width' capacity right away so it doesn't hinder her movements on the trail. While I thought the pack would slow her down, it doesn't at all - she has as much energy as ever and trots and jumps around like always - she does seem to be more businesslike with it on so I guess it makes her feel she has a 'job', and after a 2-3 mile hike, she is relaxed, calm, and settled for the rest of the day - not something a mere 2-3 mile walk can do.Read more ›

I really like these saddlebags! My dog does too! We try to run every day to keep in shape, and it's nice to have him carry things. He loves carrying my phone, the water, and the car keys! The bags stay out of his way while he's running, and don't seem to slow him down any. It took him only 10 minutes to get used to having the bags at his sides, but before I knew it, he was running like his usual self. I think the way the bags are designed make him less likely to pull also. I really like having the hook on the back of the harness too because it keeps the leash away from his legs so it doesn't get tangled. The bags themselves are relatively large. They fit a bottle of water on each side, along with my phone, and keys like I said. I wouldn't put much more in there because I wouldn't want to put too much weight in them and hurt my dog. I have an australian cattle dog. He has a huge barrel chest and this fit him so If you're worried about fit, I wouldn't. The straps extend to much more than necessary for my dog. Not only does this give your dog a job when you're out and about, it makes it easier to carry more water along. My dog really liked that we could stop halfway through our run to take a little break and get a drink. Hope this helps!
