Backpack??

At what age did you start letting your dog carry a small amount of weight? (E.g. Water bottle)

Around a year old I started putting keys, poop, half empty water bottles in there. Not much at all, and he was already used to having the backpack on. I didn't add more until about 2.

How early did you start getting him used to just the pack... No weight

When I got it for him around 6-8 mos probably. Short periods of time, lots of treats, some fetch maybe. Completely empty.
