Granite Gear Long Howlimages/Granite GearDon't tell him, but your best hiking buddy is not your spouse. It's your dog. Your dog rarely gets tired on hikes and does not mind if you want to extend or cut-short a trek.

Most importantly, they look forward to carrying their share in a dog pack. Dogs enjoy having a pack. They naturally like to work, and this allows dogs to please their owner by carrying their doggy essentials.

The Granite Gear is a recognized brand for outdoor dog gear. The Granite Gear Long Howl is the company's premier dog pack. Granite Gear has designed the Long Howl with 210D Nylon Cordura. It's the same material that is used on the company's human-designed packs.

The long Howl is available in five sizes to fit most dogs no matter the size. The Long Howl is secured to your dog by three adjustable straps. Two are under your dog's torso and one across the chest. The Long Howl is touted as a dog pack for longer day hikes and backpacking trips. According to Granite Gear, the Long Howl has a 35 pound capacity.

Two detachable saddle bags. Granite Gear has placed reflective racing-stripes on the saddle bags to protect your pup during night hikes. Each saddle bag is accessed by an external waterproof zipper. The interior is spacious and contains a zippered mesh pocket

Another favorable feature is the ability to remove the saddle bags. When you peel your pack off your back to rest along the trail, your dog can benefit from a diminished load too. Or just remove the saddle bags and use the Long Howl as an everyday harness or a vest for warmth.

Granite Gear LogoThe Granite Gear Long Howl does have a negative. The adjustable straps securing the dog pack along the torso can be cumbersome. It does secure the Long Howl adequately but does make it challenging to put on your dog.

The Granite Gear Long Howl dog pack allows your dog to be more involved during hiking and backpacking outings. Dogs enjoy Granite Gear retails the Long Howl from $99.95 to $119.95. The price is based on the size of the pack.
