Here the application of the dog carrier by Dog Carrier is shown step by step !
At the end of this post you will find the link to our video showing the mooring process after the backpack has been set to the dog (steps for the setting are explained here below!)!
But in advance something about our dog carrier:
Since we don’t know the background of your interest/purchase of our dog carrier/backpack for the dog, we can hardly give you any real specific advice!
In general, it is often the case that dogs often do themselves more easily with the acceptance when they can see a sense in wearing. Often this sense is conveyed quite well once the dog is first exhausted, only to get into the backpack and thus into relaxation …
The vast majority of dogs then enjoy the luxury of being carried, and quite a few fall asleep during transport:-)
In the case of very slender dogs, it may well be that it makes sense to stuff a flat pillow into the dog carrier bag / the dog backpack; best from one body flank of the animal over its back to the other body flank. This gives your dog an even higher seating comfort in the backpack for dogs, and-with very slim dogs-a more stable and enclosed seating position.
The basic settings themselves only have to be made once!
Open the chest strap on the upper straps, open the belly strap and open the dog carrier on the two side zippers.
(Open State Dog Carrier)
(Upper straps chest harness)
(Zipper on the side to open the backpack)
Height adjustment of the chest harness.
Depending on the size of the dog, its shoulder height must be adjusted.
You can do this on the two lower straps of the chest harness.
(Lower straps chest harness)
The point here is that the harness of the dog carrier reaches just below the neck of the animal.
The upper straps, which are connected to the click fasteners of the upper straps of the chest harness, are also height-adjustable.
For this purpose, you can see inside the backpack in 2 parallel rows, running from bottom to top, 3 height-different tabs.
(height setting with 3 tabs each)
There you can – depending on the need – thread the rotatable carabiner into the respective tab and thus determine the height.
It is optimal if these upper belts, if they are applied, lift from bottom to top at an angle that is about 45 degrees steep!
These belts should also be tightened tightly!
(Upper straps chest harness in 45 degree position and tightly tightened)
Insert the dog’s hind feet into the two lower holes while the dog is standing or by lifting it in. Through the lower middle hole of the dog bag guide the tail of the dog.
Click in the chest harness with the upper straps and then tighten tightly.
And as a reminder: This important part of the process is optimally adjusted when the belts are positioned at a steep angle of about 45 degrees and are tightly tightened!
Then close the backpack with the side zippers.
You can – especially in hot weather – leave the zippers open about halfway so that your dog doesn’t get too warm!
All zippers are AUTO-LOCK-ZIPPER from the high-quality manufacturer SBS.
This means that the zippers cannot open independently, so that each position can be locked independently!
The belly strap for the dog.
In the current, further developed click version, the belly strap for the dog no longer has to be carried out by a medium loop!
The abdominal belt is only set once in length when first adapting to your dog.
(Still applies to the old Velcro version of our Dog Carrier until September 2017, if someone has bought a backpack somewhere used (these versions are no longer available from us)):
Guide the abdominal belt through the central tab and then the lateral tab (plastic eyelet). From there, tighten the strap in the opposite direction and fix it with the adhesive surface so that the dog is well edged.
There is the possibility to pick up the dog with the backpack from step 5 of this guide. But then a second person should help to put on the abdominal belt.
Release the dog from the backpack:
Carefully place the backpack and dog on the ground, and open one of the two upper straps of the chest harness! Already your dog can get out of your backpack on your own!
And here is the film with the mooring process (2013 with the “old” Dog Carrier):
We have made some elementary modifications to our most popular model to date, the Big Dog Carrier dog bag as a backpack.
The most important thing was that the popular backpack for carrying dogs was not 100 optimal for very slim dogs!
To clean up this problem, we first made the backpack slimmer. But we also extended it a bit.
This backpack is just as optimal for medium-slim and very squat, well-built dogs!
However, he is – unlike the BIG Dog Carrier backpack for dogs – also designed for considerably slimmer dogs. Such as whippets or dachshunds …
We’ve also added new features. They are intended to make it easier to create the dog sacks and to improve the seating comfort for the dog a little more.
So we have two zippers attached to the side flanks of the backpack’s sack area.
From time to time it is the case that this flank can push the dog under the armpit (see photo 1). This is caused by the tension at the top edge of the sack part.
By opening the side, newly attached, small zipper, this tension dissolves. The pressure under the armpits thus subsides.
In addition, we have greatly simplified the upper height adjustment of the chest harness! Until now, one had to thread the belts out of the click carabiners a little laboriously and then insert the strap through the bag arranged at its height. After that, you had to bundle the strap back into the click carabiner.
We have now made the switch to even higher quality click carabiners.
These carabiners have a brace on the side for folding up and butting. This means you just have to fold up, put the carabiner sideways into the respective flap, and then fold it up again.
These carabiners of our dog bag can even be rotated 360 degrees around their own axis.
This has the advantage that when you put on the dog bag regularly, you no longer have to make sure that the strap of the chest harness is properly aligned!
Then we have an additional stiffening with aluminum installed in our dog bag or dog carrying, in the back part of the backpack.
At the end of the day, we have –, unlike our predecessor model, reinforced the chest harness itself. That’s why this can never tear even on the strongest train! It should be noted here that we only had one such problem with an XXL backpack! This is the only reason why we have made this reinforcement! It ensures that the chest harness cannot tear, no matter how firmly you would pull on it …
We had given these new BIG & SLIM Dog Carrier Hunderucksack 10 testers who already know the BIG DogCarrier. Through this direct comparison, we were able to filter the feedback of the test subjects as neutrally as possible!
With the SLM & BIG DogCarrier, we have achieved the masterpiece of our backpack range. This comes at a price, but it doesn’t get any better than that.
By the way, the Slim & BIG DogCarrier is designed to accommodate even squat dogs!
MINI (from 3-6kg, back length up to 35cm (measured from tail root to neck))
SMALL (from 5-10kg, back length up to 42cm (measured from tail root to neck)
BIG (from 7-16kg, back length up to 53cm (measured from tail root to neck))
XXL (from 15-30kg, back length up to about 70cm (measured from tail root to neck))
Regarding the sizes, the following must be observed in principle:
BIG Dog Carrier Dog Bag for dogs up to 16kg Weight:
In principle, the weight is not a problem for this dog backpack itself. Even dogs weighing 24kg fit into the BIG Dog Carrier dog bag when they have penetrated (for example, Bulldogs).
We still recommend carrying dogs in the XXL dog pocket/dog backpack for an end to 18-20kg at the latest. Even if the BIG were basically sufficient. After all, one’s own comfort is the decisive criterion.
The weight indication is more of a guide. Therefore, slim dogs with the same body weight as squat dogs have a different back length (back length is measured from the tail root to the beginning of the neck). With a very slender dog, such as a greyhound with 16kg, it may not fit into the BIG Dog Carrier anymore.
As a problem solution for this, we have created our SLIM-Dog Carrier, which will be available from approx. will be launched in the middle/end of April 2019.
Small Dog Carrier up to 10 kg weight:
Similar to the BIG-Dog Carrier dog backpack, this is less about the weight, although 10kg of weight should be the limit on this backpack.
This is due to your own comfort alone. The comfort is about 9kg in weight at the BIG Dog Carrier dog backpack/dog bag more comfortable.
A maximum rite length (measured from tail approach to neck approach) of 42 cm should not be exceeded in the Small Dog Carrier!
The XXL-DOG CARRIER backpack for dogs from 15kg to 30kg weight:
In the highest weight class of our backpack selection there are also weights that can be worn over medium distances.
From our personal experience, we would say that everything from 20 kg or 20 kg only fulfills short-term purposes, such as stairs, climbs, medically indexed bridge or, for example, lifting into the hunting stand!
Not to be underestimated is the importance of the belly strap for the subject area of the dog!
Quite a few customers neglect the wearing of the belly belt. But the belly strap is quite significant in the comfort of the seat, involved in the sitting position! He stabilizes the dog in the backpack and he encapsulates it. He prevents the dog from slipping into the sack area with its backwoods!
So be sure to put the belly strap on, it’s an essential part of the backpack system!
From time to time, customers send us photos of their dog in our dog backpack. A selection of these photos, which have been approved for publication by these customers, are summarized in a special customer album.
You’ll see different breeds of dogs, from the little painting day to the Australian Richback, all in the Dog Carrier backpack for dogs.
After receiving the photos, we were able to give tips to some customers. Most of the time, the advice meant that the settings of the backpack could be made even more optimally. This also increased the comfort of the comfort for the respective dog …
Whether for shopping, shopping, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, supportive running or killing the dog over critical routes such as climbing paths, stairs, rocky ascents or descents, on the hunting stand, up or down for the dog not accessible to the dog Places/levels, or taking them in the METRO (in the US, in LA or NY, dogs may be taken exclusively in bags or backpacks), S-Bahn, or or or, the Dog Carrier is the right one because professional choice for such purposes.
So there are certainly many other uses that we leave to our future customers, but we are also happy to inform us about why they need the backpack …
The dog carrier is washable in the washing machine at 40 degrees.
Dry in the dryer only with sports program!
All our dog carrier bags have two Velcro fasteners at the top edge of the back part of the dog sacks. This conceals 2 alloy stiffness. Pull these out before washing and put the backpack in the washing machine. When the backpack is dry, slide the alloy stiffness back in.
Otherwise, our dog bags are easy to clean with water and a sponge.
mehr erfahren 2 years of intensive collaboration with backpack designers and developers, as well as a veterinarian and other consultants are the result of this well thought-out product! The dog backpack for carrying dogs. For us, the safety of the dog is paramount, as is the quality of our product. The back parts of our dog carriers / pet carriers are from a well-known, German quality brand manufacturer for backpacks of all kinds. The front part of the dog carrier bag comes from the same factory, but the development comes from us. Here you can see -following this text- detailed photos of typical features of our dog carrier, regardless of the size. All backpacks have the high-quality SBS – AUTO – LOCK – zippers on the sides, so that the backpack can stay open up to about half in very warm weather, without the zippers being able to open further on their own! The other photos show the interior of the respective outside pockets for provisions etc., the padding as well as the respective hip pockets for mobile phones etc. Since May 2019, we have made changes for the SMALL and BIG Dog Carrier series for the height adjustment of the chest harness in the area of the inner backpack back. With our XXL – dog carrier bag for carrying dogs up to 30kg weight, this was already part of the equipment! The above-mentioned change concerns the flanges themselves, and the carabiners, which have to be threaded there. An additional, third stiffener made of aluminium of the back has also been re-installed, and the chest harness has been reinforced so that it is absolutely tear-resistant! The tabs in our backpack are now rearranged. Thus, the insertion of the equally new rotary carabiner is as easy as possible. On the side, 2 zips were attached to the top edges of the bag part of the backpack. By opening these zippers, the pull is taken on the top edge so that the armpit of the dog is not exposed to pressure.

Basically, the sitting position for the dogs in our dog backpack is neither harmful nor unpleasant! Quite a few dogs fall asleep while they are carried or they are at least relaxed!
Before we dive deeper and substantiated on the topic of “Health restrictions” regarding our Dog Carrier be aware of:
Dogs with spondylosis or acute herniated discs should not be carried in our backpack. A healed operated intervertebral disc accident, on the other hand, is not a problem!
Based on the fact that dogs are naturally exposed to much higher joint loads in the fast-paced run, hunting, jumping or playing, this is-recommended on max. 1/2 to 2 hours long-daily carrying with appropriate breaks is recommended
Nima, an adventurer in pure form, lives for life!
She has been on the road with Horst for more than 3 years. Horst is their motorhome from the 70s. Aged, but reliable and individual. Her dogs are constantly, and, last but not least, their partner.
They have been living in a camper van with the three dogs for over three years and travel through Europe https://abenteuer-unterwegs.de/
Two of their dogs are already real seniors at the age of 13 and almost 15, but they also have an energetic youngster (just under 15 kg).
For the two older dogs they may well need a carrying facility for the hikes. So they came up to us and we provided them with a backpack. that was already in January 2019.
Well, the day before yesterday Nima kindly sent us an experience and experience report regarding our patented, world’s largest dog backpack for carrying dogs, the XXL-Dog Carrier for dogs from 15-30kg!
