Your pup’s pack is as important as your own when embarking on a serious hike or backpacking trip

Whether you’re taking a furry friend with you on a camping trip or you live in a dog-friendly town, knowing how to pack a backpack for dogs is a useful skill for pet owners. Inside our Ruffwear Palisades Dog Pack, we packed a Ruffwear Collapsible Water Bottle, dog food and treats, Ruffwear Grip Trex Dog Boots, Adventure Medical Kits ADS Dog Heeler First-Aid Kit, tick remover, paracord, boar bristle brush, Musher’s Secret Pet Paw Protection Wax, Adventure Lights Guardian Dog Light, Ruffwear Roamer Dog Leash, Counter Assault Bear Bell, poop bags, and a collapsible bowl. Make sure the pack doesn’t exceed over a third of your dog’s weight, and you’re ready to take Fido for a walk.
