Dog Carrier Backpack

DOG PERCH BACKPACK

The dog carrier for active people

As Featured on CBS's The Early Show with veterinarian Debbye Turner!

The Dog Perch Backpack is a superb backpack with a special seat for your dog. Pets ride in a natural position without legs or tail dangling, and our technical backpack suspension system eases the load on your shoulders and back, and moves most of the weight comfortably to your hips. Safety harness restrains pet without discomfort. The ideal dog carrier for taking your pet hiking, around town or to outdoor festivals! Great for puppies, ailing or elderly dogs, and possibly even going where dogs are not usually permitted.

"Our dogs are 11 and 12 years old, and need a little help on those long day hikes. We tried [the Dog Perch Backpack] out...at Grayson Highlands in SW VA. This worked perfect! The dogs loved it and one of them fell asleep while we were hiking." Erick Allen, Hendersonville, NC.
• Designed to be worn by adults 5' to 5'11". Taller users should check out our "Extra-Large" size below!
• Fits small dogs; up to about 22 lbs suggested weight. The size of the seat area is 11” x 8” at the base, and 12” high. At the top, it widens to about 11” x 11". You may want to measure your dog when in a seated position. If your dog is larger, check out our sizes Medium & Extra-Large below!
• Control straps fine-tune load distribution between your shoulders and hips.
• Sternum strap distributes the load and eliminates under-the-arm pressure.
• Shoulder straps & hip belt have sturdy foam to cushion load and absorb shock.
• Mesh backband provides cool back support for carrier.
• Five-point safety harness holds dog in securely, and clips to collar
• Water-resistant 480 cu. in. underseat pocket.
• Tubular aluminum loading stand opens out for stability, folds back when in use.
• Weighs only 3 lbs. 8 oz.
• The Dog Perch Backpack is a combination of our Pal'mino backpack and the Dog Perch Seat. The Seat can also be purchased separately (see below), and used with many of our various-sized child carriers (see all options).
• The dog seat is easily removable without tools, is machine washable, and can be quickly re-installed.
• Works great with our accessories, including Rain/Sun Hood & add-on bags and pouches
