Did You Know Trainers Recommend Dog Backpacks To Calm Energetic Dogs?
Well exercised dogs behave better.
It can be super challenging to provide energetic dogs with enough excercise. Dog Backpacks are great way to up the ante and can work wonders in settling your dog. Most dogs love having a job to do. Match your dog's strength and energy by adding weight to the backpack. Dogs can comfortably carry up to 20% of their weight in a backpack.
Carrying their own water can be a great weight bearing exercise & provide hydration for your dogs.
Some dog backpacks come with built in water bladders or you can just pop in a bottle of water on each side. The important thing is to be sure your dog's backpack is balanced with an equal load on each side.
