IS THE K9 SPORT SACK SAFE TO USE?
The carriers were designed under
the close supervision of
multiple veterinarians to ensure maximum
comfort and safety.
Will This Hurt My Dog's Back?
No, if the K9 Sport Sack is used properly, you should not
have any issues with your dog's back.
Each bag is equipped with
a lumbar strap for
extra back support.
However, if your dog
has pre-existing health concerns
or we recommend consulting
your veterinarian before purchasing.
During the consultation, it
will be important to
know your dog may stand on the base
of the bag at first, but will
settle in to sit in an upright
position on their bottom.
Their front paws will be exposed and
resting on your shoulders.
We recommend using the carrier
for 30-45 minutes at a time.
My dog Gizmo gets excited everytime I bring out his backpack.
I did get the trainer which is good for shorter trips. Ive done a few longer ones and will be purchasing the nicer one with more padding. If youre thinking about this, get it. So practical and perfect to take your doggy around!
Lucille is just big enough that she doesn't fit in most backpacks so I was so happy to see that these come in such big sizes. It is great for our bike rides and for when she will get tired on hikes. It is pretty comfortable for me and she seems to like it. I only wish that the straps could tighten more. She's got a long body, but doesn't have a lot of girth.
Easy to use and as soon as I got my dog to sit in it instead of try to stand, she loved it too.
I ordered the K9 Trainer for my newest rescue. Molly is a puppy mill survivor and she is eight years old. She is a chihuahua, short with short legs. She loves her walks, but she does tire. She still wants to stay out and the K9 Trainer is the perfect solution. She can ride and my hands are still free to walk my other rescues! I have three other K9 sacks in sizes extra small to medium and a booster block so everyone has a carrier I can use as the dogs get older. My dogs love their carriers. Thank you K9!!
