@itsdawsontime Great topic! I am a puppy aunt to a super cute Golden Retriever. I really enjoyed this Expert Advice article about Hiking or Backpacking with Your Dog. I also plan to purchase an emergency rescue harness just to be prepared for when he gets bigger. Carrying him on the trail is fine now, but not when he is 75lbs!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
