If your dog's measurements don't line up perfectly with one size, don't worry. Select the size that accommodates your largest measurements. You can always add a Booster Block to make up for the lack of length. The Booster Block adds 3 inches to any Small, Medium and Large K9 Sport Sack. Made from quality foam, with a removable and washable cloth cover. The Booster Block has been built to last.
All K9 Sport Sack carriers are specially developed under the close direction of animal professionals, veterinarians, dog trainers, and outdoor product engineers to be ergonomic, safe, and strong.

We recommend starting out for a short 10-15min at the start, to get both the dog and human used to the carrier. Subsequently, your dog shouldn't be in the backpack for more than 50 minutes at a time and even lesser on a hot day. Always monitor your dog for signs of discomfort.
It's best to consult with your vet prior to using the K9 Sport Sack backpack, as putting your dog in a vertical position for a prolonged period of time may cause discomfort.
- Have your dog stand or walk onto the bag.
- Place front paws through the arm holes.
- Clip the top collar enclosure buckle.
- Place back legs in and zip up.
- Feed collar enclosure buckle through zipper loop.
- Tighten side cinches, collar enclosure, and back lumbar straps.

If you have the right size and are wearing the carrier correctly, it’s not a problem if your dog prefers to ride in the K9 Sport Sack with their paws inside of the carrier.
If your dog is too small for the bag and isn’t able to put their paws through the arm holes, you need to either exchange the bag out for the right size or get a booster block to give your dog a lift inside the carrier.
You may also need to pull the collar enclosure a bit tighter and make sure the carabiner clip is clipped to your dog’s collar.
Some dogs really love to lean back into the K9 Sport Sack.
This is completely normal and natural. Please make sure you have tightened your collar enclosure and side cinch straps to help your dog stay forward in the bag.
