    Hello PF,

    I've been debating buying Enzo a backpack or weight pack to wear on walks, for the pure reason to drain more energy.

    What are people's thoughts and opinions on these being used and can anyone recommend a good one?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't... it's no different from having an overweight dog... dogs should be slender as to not put excess pressure on their joints.

    Big yes from me!

    It's something i keep meaning to get but just never got around to it, and am hoping it will help with their weight pulling a little bit

    You`ll either get a stronger dog - who needs more exercise - or one with arthritis from strain on the joints.
    The best way to tire your dog is to spend time training. Especially scent games.
