I was thinking of getting a backpack for my dog to wear when we go on walks to get a bit more exercise, and so that he can carry his water and a few other things when we take long walks and hikes in the spring/summer.

I was looking at Ruff Wear, but those are pretty expensive. Are they worth it? Are there other similar models that are less pricey?

Thanks!

I think they are worth it...although I haven't bought mine yet. I do have the Kelty K9 Chuckwagon. It's a good pack, but it does slip to one side even with the load balanced (1 cup of dog food in either side). It's a small for Mutt on our hikes. When Pistol gets a little older I'll start using it to get her used to an empty one on her back (we're already working with a regular harness) and then when she's ready for it she'll get a Ruff Wear Palisades. I like it because you can remove the bags from the harness. I'm going to REI in a week or so and I'm thinking about going ahead and getting it and seeing how Millie likes it.
