How do I put my dog’s backpack on?

Here the creation of the dog bag 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!)!

The basic settings for your child in the dog backpack, which can also be used as a child’s crab “light”, are the same as for the dog!

In advance, however, it is still fundamental to our dog bag / child crab:

Flat-rate recommendations and information about the dog carrier® in use as a dog backpack:

Dogs often find it easier to accept when they can see a sense of carrying in a dog bag.

Often this sense is well conveyed once the dog is exhausted!

During the wearing – after a short period of acclimatization – your dog can then come to relax!

The vast majority of dogs enjoy the luxury of being carried!

And quite a few dogs even fall asleep while wearing!

Please now observe the steps with the presets as well as the preparation of the dog carrier for attaching to your dog!

The basic settings of the dog carrier or child crab itself only have to be made once!

Step 1

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)

(abdominal belt)

(Zipper on the side to open the backpack)

Step 2

Height adjustment of the chest harness.

Depending on the size of the dog/child, its shoulder height must be adjusted.

You can do this on the two lower straps of the chest harness.

(Lower straps chest harness)

Why is the correct height adjustment of the dishes so important for the Dog Carrier?

The point here is that the harness of the dog carrier / child’s collar reaches just below the neck of the animal or that of the child. If it is set too high, it presses into the neck!

The upper straps, which are connected to the upper click fasteners 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)

Step 3

Insert the back feet of the dog/child into the two lower holes while the dog/child stands or by lifting it/it into it. Through the lower middle hole of the dog bag guide the tail of the dog.

A perforated, padded seat cushion is supplied, which is also suitable for children!

The hole is not so big that the child’s seating comfort suffers from it, and in case of need, a common, flat seat cushion can be inserted!

Step 4

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 and tightly tightened at a steep angle of about 45 degrees!

Step 5

Then close the backpack / child crab with the side zippers.

You can – especially in hot weather – leave the zippers open about halfway! This does not make your dog/child 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!

Step 6

The abdominal belt for the dog / child.

Why is it so important to put on the abdominal belt?

The belly strap holds your child or dog stable in the backpack and thus gives a comfortable sitting position.

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.

You can lift the dog/child 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/child 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!

For the child, it is best to open both upper straps of the chest harness, and the lateral, longest zippers!

And here is the film with the dog carrier’s mooring process:

(From 2013 with the old Dog Carrier and still with the old Velcro on the abdominal belt):

Swap the old Dog Carrier! This is what you need to know here – read why!

Your child or young dog grow out of the purchased backpack quickly?

That’s why we offer you the next bigger dog carrier in exchange for your used backpack plus payment of a difference price!

Simply order the next size under “Exchange Backpacks”!

Then send us your roughly cleaned old backpack back, pay the difference and we will send you the new, larger copy in return!

Why switch from the smaller BIG to the largest dog carrier, the XXL backpack?

It is not uncommon for us to receive requests from dog owners who get a puppy or already have it.

The most frequently asked question is whether and why to carry a puppy in your backpack!

We can say yes to this in most cases, after all, it is about the sustainable health of their young dog.

And if – especially at the age of adolescence – something is permanently done wrong, then this usually has not insignificant consequences for the skeleton of the dog.

This often involves pain and further impairment.

Most of our enquiry here naturally opt for the smaller version of our DOG-CARRIER range for the time being.

From this, the puppy /child often grows out in a few months. As a result, the smaller backpack can no longer be used.

So that you have something of our product in a sustainable way, we offer this exchange offer!

BIG&SLIM backpack also for slim dogs

mehr erfahren

We have made modifications to our most popular model to date, the Big Dog Carrier dog bag as a dog backpack.

The most important thing was that the popular backpack was not 100 optimal for very slim dogs!

To solve this problem, we first made the backpack slimmer.

We have also extended it somewhat.

For clarity:

The classic BIG Dog Carrier dog backpack is ideal for dogs up to max. 53 cm back length (measured from tail approach to neck).

This backpack is just as optimal for medium-slim and very squat, well-built dogs!

The SLIM&BIG DOG CARRIER dog bag, on the other hand, is ideal for dogs up to max. 56 cm back length (measured from tail approach to neck)!

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 / child crab can be rotated 360 degrees around its own axis.

This has the advantage that you no longer have to take care when putting on the dog bag that the strap of the chest harness is correctly aligned!

Then we have an additional stiffening with aluminum installed in our dog bag or dog carrying, in the back part of the backpack.

This stiffening can be pulled out.

This allows you to roll in the backpack and take it to another transport backpack.

You can also put the backpack in the washing machine!

Our patented backpack offers the world’s most comfortable carrying option for dogs from approx. 6kg !

In addition, there is no other backpack in the world in which you can carry a child or a dog in an alternative and reasonably secured way!

The developments around our backpack for dogs and children allow you the greatest possible benefit and wearing comfort!

In the end, we reinforced the chest harness itself, so that it can not tear even under extreme pull!

This ensures absolute safety!

We have also achieved another masterpiece with the BIG&SLIM Dog Carrier!

Admittedly, this has a price to pay, but, you will find nothing better!

The SLIM&BIG dog backpack is also designed to accommodate even crowded dogs!

Here is the detailed report as well as photo documentation on the BIG & SLIM Dog Carrier:


Size chart of our backpacks

mehr erfahren

The size chart for our backpack also applies to children!

Measure in children easily from neck to step, and in dogs from the neck to the tail base!

MINI (back length up to 35cm (measured from tail root to neck) and from 3- 6kg) ,

SMALL (back length up to 42cm (measured from tail root to neck) and from 5-10kg) ,

BIG (back length up to (measured from tail root to neck) 53cm and from 7-16kg), and

XXL (back length up to (measured from tail root to neck) 70cm and from 15-30kg)



The dog backpacks / children’s crabs of sizes MINI, SMALL and BIG can also be worn at the front!

Regarding the sizes of our backpacks, the following is to be considered here:

-BIG Dog Carrier dog bag / child crab for dogs/children up to 16kg weight:

In principle, the weight for this dog backpack / this child crab itself is not a problem.

Dogs weighing 24kg also fit into the BIG Dog Carrier dog bag (e.g. 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 specification for the Dog Carrier therefore serves rather as a rough guide!

Therefore, since slender dogs with the same body weight as penetrated dogs have a different rist length (rist length is measured from the tail attachment to the neck attachment).

With a very slender dog, such as a greyhound with 16kg, it may not fit into the BIG Dog Carrier anymore because the back is too long.

As a solution, we have developed our SLIM-Dog Carrier dog backpack!

We have been offering it since June 2019!

-Small Dog Carrier up to 10 kg weight:

Similar to the BIG-Dog Carrier dog backpack, this is less about weight!

Nevertheless, 10kg weight should be the limit for this backpack / child crab, even for your own wearing comfort due to

The wearing comfort is from about 10kg weight with the BIG Dog Carrier dog backpack / dog bag at least a lot 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 / child crab 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 serves only short-term purposes for a short term!

The abdominal belt provides stability when sitting!

mehr erfahren

Not to be underestimated is the importance of the abdominal belt for the area of the sack;

This gives your dog or child a significant and additional stability when sitting!

Some customers neglect the wearing of the abdominal belt, according to our experience.

But the belly strap is quite significant in the comfort of the seat, involved in the sitting position!

He stabilises the dog or child in his backpack and he captures both safely.

It also prevents the dog from slipping into the sack area with its hind legs!


Customer Album Dog Carrier®

mehr erfahren

Every now and then customers send us photos of their dog in our dog carrier.

A selection of these photos are summarized in a special customer album.

Of course, the photos of these customers have been released for publication!

You can see different breeds of dogs, from the little malesto to the Australian Richback, all in our Dog Carrier!

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 wearing comfort for the respective dog.

Since we have only started to expand the use since November 2019, namely the carrying of children, we do not have any more photos with children in our backpacks!

Purpose of use as a dog carrier

mehr erfahren

Whether it’s

-Shopping (for dog and child)

-Hiking (for dog and child)

-Fahcycling (for dog and child)

-Mountain biking (only for the dog)

-supporting running (for dog and child)

-or the movement of the dog or child over critical routes such as

-Climbing routes


-rocky ascents or descents

-on the hunting lodge –

-up or down on places inaccessible to the dog/child

-or take-away in the METRO

( in the USA, in LA or NY, dogs may only be taken in bags or backpacks )

-the take-away in the S-Bahn / Regionalbahn

-or or or –

our backpack for carrying dogs and children is qualitative and with its size offer a great alternative!

  • Consider rescue dogs, which find it impossible to get over passages without getting there with the help of a carrier.
  • Also older dogs, which no longer come up the stairs – or come down. Not infrequently there are still various old buildings or residential buildings, where there is no lift. The disabled dog must then be carried up by its owner. Without a backpack a much more laborious affair …
  • A rider claimed to have bought the XXL backpack because her dog was injured on a horseback riding trip! The dog was so heavy that she could not transport it. That’s why she had to leave her dog alone to get help and a suitable means of transport! With the Dog Carrier, this doesn’t happen to you anymore…
  • Hunters can take their dog to the hunting stand with the Dog Carrier

So there are certainly many other uses for our dog carrier.

How to clean our backpacks

mehr erfahren

The dog backpacks / children’s crabs can be washed 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.

In the tumble dryer dry the backpack only with “sports program”!

Otherwise, our dog bags are easy to clean with water and a sponge.

Hair can be extracted with the vacuum cleaner.


Dog Carrier – Quality and Details

mehr erfahren

Our experience since our sales launch in 2014, together with the feedback of countless communications with customers, has been constantly incorporated into improvements!

For us, the safety of the dog is paramount, as is the quality of our product.

The back parts of our dog bags / children’s crabs come 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, and is patented throughout Europe!

Below you can see detailed photos of typical features of our dog backpacks, regardless of the size of the backpack!

All backpacks have the high-quality SBS – AUTO – LOCK – zippers on the sides!

Thus, you can leave the backpack open up to about half in very warm weather, without the zippers being able to open independently!

The other photos show inside the respective outer pockets for provisions 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 bag / child crab for carrying dogs and children up to 30kg weight this was already part of the basic equipment!

These changes affect the tabs themselves (were rotated 90 degrees), as well as the new rotary carabiners, which are threaded into them.

For this purpose, an additional, third stiffening made of aluminium of the back was sewn in to strengthen the overall stability!

Also the chest harness has been reinforced again, so that it is absolutely tear-resistant!

The tabs in our backpack are now rearranged (so a finer adjustment of the height setting is possible).

And inserting the equally new rotary carabiner is thus very easy!

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.

Health restrictions

mehr erfahren

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!

We are not aware of any restrictions for children!

Restrictions on use in dogs:

Dogs with spondylosis or acute herniated discs should not be carried in our dog 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

Test of the XXL Dog Carrier(P) – from “Adventure on the Road”

mehr erfahren

A post about our XXL – dog backpack by Nima, an adventurer in pure form; she 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.

There are always their dogs, and their partner.

They have been living in a camper together with the three dogs for over three years and travel through Europe

Two of their dogs are already real seniors at the age of 13 and almost 15.

But, they also have an energetic young dog (with just under 15 kg) with them.

For the two older dogs they may well need a backpack for the hikes.

So they came up to us and we provided them with a dog backpack. that was already in January 2019.

Nima kindly sent us an experience and experience report about the world’s largest backpack for carrying dogs!

The XXL-Dog Carrier for dogs from 15-30kg!
