    Dog back pack?????

    Could anyone suggest where I could purchase a GOOD quality backpack so my bitch can carry her own bloody dog biscuits?????

    Anywhere BUT the crowd called Lifestyle in Auckland. I bought one of theirs off trademe & it fell to bits 10 minutes up the track!!!! Very poor quality stitching. I don't want to get caught again, so I thought I'd ask around.

    Oh, and it would need room for a couple of cans of waikato too!!!!!

    Not cheap but are supposed to be good. I don't own one but also thinking of getting 1 for the hound.

    Thanks very much guys. I'll contact those two & see what I come up with.

    If I get one & find that it is worth the money, I'll let you know.

    Beers to all.

    I'll vouch for real dog. Bloody good to deal with and top gear. I spend, um, more than I am prepared to say there and it really is top gear.

    Tell Rose the mad rabbiter sent you, the bill will go up then

    I got a blaze orange one from Twinneedle today. Looks to be very good quality as usual. Dog is wearing it around getting used to it and will give it a proper go on the weekend.

    Do Twin needle make them as custom fit ?
    I recall seeing them at the sika show, and just like all of their gear, the saddle bags were built tough.

    Yes thanks K95 & Pengy. I have been in touch with these guys & I'm just saving my pennies to get one for my wirehair.
    What size is your pooch K95??? & is there a choice of sizes???? What did you pay for your one????

    Beers.

    There is no size option on the website, it's a one size fits all deal. My dog is the same size as an average shorthair pointer and it fits well. I paid $200 which includes the two saddle bags. I'll take pictures this weekend.

    Does your dog carry bricks or something? Mine will carry her biscuits and not much else.
