Check out our review of our favorite dog backpack, Ruffwear.
If your dog has a lot of extra energy, adding a backpack to your walk can help wear them out and can also help them focus because they have a "job." A dog backpack is also very helpful for hiking and events because your dog can help carry water and other essentials. I absolutely love the Ruffwear dog backpack. It fits well, sits properly on the dog, and does not inhibit the dog's movement (unlike most other types of backpacks).
