Top Paw® Dog Backpack
Good Product but overpriced
Same exact item as the outward hound back pack for sell on Petsmarts website. You can even see in the picture where the backpack has the Outward Hound logo on it. Only difference the Top Paw one is about $6 more expensive. I will be returning mine.

Large dog/broke front leg in 2 places. The handle on the back of the pack was very helpful in lifting him in and out of the car.

Great for working dogs
My husband and I took our two in training Service Dogs on a day trip to a local cave area. We used their back packs for the first time today and the dogs did really well. They carried only their water bottles and their portable bowls going into the gem mining area but when we left they carried three bags of gem stones and some other trinkets that we had picked up. The dogs were very proud to carry their packs. As the two of them are male and female and weigh around 80 pounds for the male and 60 pounds for the female we bought an extra large for the male and a large for the female. The males is blue and the females is pink. The pockets are roomy and large enough for them to carry a gatoraid bottle in each pocket plus their portable bowls some pick up bags and still have room for other things. And it tires them out during their work training sessions. And they get complements on how stunning they look in their backpacks against their black fur. I have read reviews about the packs not being waterproof but I just bought some scotch guard waterproofing spray and sprayed the packs to make them waterproof. And although the straps were a little long I just tacked them up on the base or vest part so that the extra length doesnt drag the ground. I love the fact that the packs are removable so that the dogs can rest when we do.

Great extra Floatation and safety for dogs
My German Shepherd/border collie loves to swim but found himself sinking down under when tired. He is going to be ten years old this year but he is very active.
I found this in store at Petsmart and tried it on my dog for size. He is a fit 67lbs and the XL fit great. We tried it in the pool today and he swam with extra confidence with the added buoyancy. I could noticeably tell he sat higher in the water.
I look forward to trying it while canoeing.
He swam a lot and it dried very quickly afterwards. I like that it has two handles on the top as well.
*note it says here if you order online, thy choose the color they send, which is fine unless you have a boy og and thy send you bright pink!
