If I had to choose between doing something with another human or my dog, I would 100% choose my dog (sorry mom). I'd bring my dog everywhere with me, if it were allowed—even grocery stores. However, when it comes to doing outdoorsy activities, some obstacles can arise, like not having having a safe way to transport or carry the pup.
Lucky for dog lovers, there's a bag on the market that solves these problems. Going for a bike ride? Going on a work trip? Going to Target? Don't worry, now you can now easily bring your best friend with you thanks to the K9 Sports Sack.
The K9 Sport Sack is a forward-facing dog backpack "specially developed under the close direction of animal professionals, veterinarians, dog trainers and outdoor product engineers to be ergonomic, safe and strong" according to their website.
This product is incredibly easy to use. First, clip the hook to your pup's collar. Once hooked, guide the dog's legs into the two holes. Once the arms are in, just zip up the bag around their little bodies and head out.
The best part of this bag? It comes in several varieties:
Best for Small Dogs: The Air
The Air is great for bike rides, shorter hikes, quick trips or any other pet-carrying adventure you can dream up. This classic model is the most flexible, breathable and lightweight pet carrier they offer. There is a weight limit of 30 pounds, so this isn't the bag for larger dogs.
Best for Mid-Size Dogs: The Air Plus
The next tier up is the Air Plus. Just like the Air, the Air Plus comes with additional storage, padding and ventilation. This one is built for dogs up to 40 pounds and for intermediate hikes, bike rides and/or other moderate outdoor activities. While the Air and Air Plus cater to the great outdoors, the Urban was designed for city dwellers, and it has a 30-pound weight limit. If you think you have a smaller dog, you can purchase a booster block for their bum.
Best for Large Dogs: The Rover
Now for the big one. Literally. The Rover was created with larger dogs in mind. Recently launched, it is quite literally THE biggest bag on the dog market. The Rover has been developed over the last two years to be the premier big-dog carrier on the market. With sizes ranging from Large to XXL, this bag is the perfect fit for pups up to 80 pounds.
Once you find the bag that fits your pup, the fun begins. Time to accessorize! There's a rain jacket insert, goggles, and even reflective strips. But I think my personal favorite has to be the name custom Velcro patch.
There are other dog backpacks out there, but I'd be willing to bet one month's rent—I live in NYC, so that's A LOT—that they aren't nearly as comfortable OR safe as the K9 Sports Sack.
