A Carabiner Lets Your Dog Carry His Own Weight Like North

"Awww, that dog has a purse," exclaimed one girl on my walk with North on a sunny weekend. (Shhh, don't tell him that – he'll get a complex.) Anyway I use this carabiner to clip a lil bag to my pup's harness so he pulls his own weight in poop bags and biscuits. Yeah, it's not the most stylish way to do this, but it gets the job done and frees up my hands when I want to go purse free!

I know it's not technically his whole weight (although he'd willingly try to lug that many yums around if I let him), as you can tell from his expression, he's thrilled. Actually I woke him up out of a deep sleep so I could snap these pictures before work last week but consider making an impromptu treats and baggies bag with an old change purse and a carabiner. Super easy snaps for snacks!

I want to try this on my dog, but it will most likely distract him or make him nervous...:oy:

something this light-weight is fine but people should remember that if they want their dogs to carry anything with some real weight to it they have to be careful to distribute the weight evenly and carry packs high on their dogs back in order to avoid joint or back injury from carrying weight on the middle of the spines or only on one side of their body.
