K9 Sport Sack

This Bag comes in multiple designs and sizes for all kinds of uses!  We have listed this first as this has been our “go to” bag thus far!  

K9 Sport Sack is continually updating their bags and has designed them for both comfort and functionality for both you and your pet!

Below are some informational excerpts from their site:

The K9 Sport Sack® isn't meant to take away from your pet's exercise, rather to give your pet a needed break from a hike or to ride a bike. This carrier allows you to take your dog or pet on adventures or to places you never thought possible.

First things first. Make sure you know your dog's measurements.

GIRTH - Measure around the widest part of the dog's chest.

LENGTH - Measure from the collar to the base of the tail.

If your measurements don't line up perfectly with one size or have a growing dog, don't worry. Select the size that accommodates your largest measurement. You can always add a  Boostsr Block to make up for lack of length.

Buy with Confidence

Customers with an imperfect first experience report that exchanging for the correct size resolved most issues.

If your carrier is difficult to zip, seems to scrunch your pet or he/she extends too far out of the collar enclosure, try the next size up with a Booster Block and you’ll likely be surprised that your passenger will settle right into place.

If your pet is drowning in fabric, sliding down inside the bag or able to exit through a top that is too loose, exchanging for a smaller size or fine-tuning with a Booster Block is likely to do the trick.

Additionally, most pet owners who return their K9 Sport Sack eventually make a second purchase as the excitement to take their best friend on adventures weighs heavily on dog and owner alike. According to a survey conducted in 2018 the majority of all customers who ultimately kept their second K9 Sport Sack reported that their dog needed 1) the correct size and 2) a bit of additional training in order to make the K9 Sport Sack work for them.

Please Don't Give Up

We understand that no sizing guide is as accurate as a product in hand so we have made exchanges simple and fast. Reach out to our knowledgeable customer support team at or (385) 515-8908 for any advice, tricks, hints or ideas to take your adventure off the leash.

Kurgo Rucksack

Kurgo creates wonderful quality products and the Rucksack doesn’t fall short in this area!  We have found that it holds a lot but oftentimes less comfortable for many pups.  Some pups have liked the more “crate” feel to this bag though.   Another thing to keep in mind is that the Kurgo bag is only suitable for pups up to 25 pounds 
Kurgo Excerpt From Their Site:

The K9 Rucksack has all the features you want in a carrier, plenty of room, ventilation, and an interior pad that can be washed. But the pack also comes equipped with room for your laptop or iPad, an interior tether to keep your pup in place and a completely water and muck proof bottom that wards off even the dirtiest of subway floors. We understand you want to go together everywhere, we just made it easy to do it in style.
