Is it comfortable for my dog?
Yes! Your dog sits in the “begging” position which is a natural stance for dogs and does not create any pressure points on healthy legs and spines. Your dog is also leaning up against your body which creates stability and comfort. Furthermore, we developed multiple strap systems that support the dog’s lumbar region, upper back and upper shoulders to allow as much freedom of movement as possible without sacrificing the snugness your dog needs. Based on veterinarian feedback we recommend that dogs not stay in the bag for any more than 45 continuous minutes. Although your dog may protest, he/she should have 15 minutes out of the bag for every 45 minutes in the bag.
Is it safe?
When used correctly, extremely safe. When we designed the K9 Sport Sack safety was our priority. The bag comes equipped with a “D” ring that clips to the dog’s collar as well as a system of safety straps that protect the occupant while offering structural and ergonomic support.
Is it adjustable?
Yes! Although this will not take the place of choosing the correct size, the K9 Sport Sack comes equipped with a system of cinch straps that secure the dog snuggly in the bag and limit the dog’s balance altering mobility.
Can my disabled dog ride in one?
It depends on the disability and condition of your dog. Please consult with your veterinarian if you have concerns about how the K9 Sport Sack may affect your dog’s condition. The K9 Sport Sack was designed for healthy dogs and accepts no liability for the exacerbation of disabilities.
Is the K9 Sport Sack Washable?
Yes. Hand wash with mild detergent and hand dry.
