Max's backpackI’m still of very mixed opinion about dogs on trails, but my sister and brother-in-law often take their dog, Max, along with them with apparent success. In any case, they’ve decided that Max needs to start carrying his own weight, so he is now the proud owner of his own backpack.

For the gear conscious Max is sporting the large REI Adventure Dog Pack seen here in “Ale” but also available in “Atomic Blue”.
