With three models of dog packs, a couple of questions we frequently get are, what pack should I get for my dog? And, what are the differences between your packs?

The question that we ask in return to aid in the decision making process is, “what activities will you be using this pack for with your dog?”

All three of our packs share the same great fit, thanks to the Web Master™ Harness frame – offering a customizable fit, with five points of adjustment. This optimum fit allows for the full range of motion needed in the active pursuits the packs are designed for.

The differences really come from the activities they are designed for. Here is a simple comparison to help you decide what pack is best for your adventure dog.

  1. Can/Should these be paired with a swamp cooler vest? Or only used when it’s not hot enough to wear the swamp cooler? Also, do these have leash attachments in the front (like a harness)to help with pups that need help to keep from pulling.
