There's nothing that dampens the excitement of leaving for a trip quite like a sad-eyed dog moping in the window as you pull away.
Luckily, if you have a small dog (or you're really, really strong), Ruffit Dog Carriers has invented the travel accessory every pet owner has been missing: a backpack that comfortably straps your pup to your back, so you never have to be separated again.
Picture this: You're walking through the cobblestone streets of Florence, your pup taking in the sights, sounds, and smells along with you. Or, maybe you're hiking through Canada's national parks (for free), without worrying about him chasing bison and getting lost in the woods.

Plus, just imagine what a conversation starter (and adorable photo opp) this would be.
The carriers come in sizes ranging from small to extra-large, but they are recommended for dogs under 18 inches and 25 pounds. The Ruffit website explains how to properly measure your pooch.
