For day hikes or overnights, the Long Howl from Granite Gear is perfect for the serious hiking dog. The saddle bags have a yoke-like harness that is made of stretch-woven nylon that can support ample weight without pulling on your dog’s neck. So you can load up the saddlebags with a collapsible water bowl, leash, and all the food that your dog needs to be a self-sufficient member of your pack.
The stretch woven nylon is also the same material that Granite Gear uses on their award-winning packs for humans. It ensures maximum comfort for dogs by providing a secure, non-twisting fit that allows your dog to hike along with you to its heart’s content.
