I have taken dogs backpacking on several trips. My daughter's dog is a hinze 57 mix. He's a mix of black lab, some kind of hound, and rottweiler. So he's a big dog. I'm planning on takeing him with me on trips. I'm not that old at 42 but don't wante to carry his food, blanket, water dish. We are still training him and I thought this might be a good time to get him use to the pack. I spoke with a not so helpful sales person at rei, and a women at black dome sports. Who knew a lot more about dog packs than at rei. So does anyone have any advice about what kind to get? I have used gear in the past that I did't like and just wante my daughter's dog to be comfortable when we go. And so far no one have given me advice
On how to even the load out? I'm guessing it matter too? Thank you oogway.
