We have an active pit bull who we take with us when we hike, fish, and swim in the nearby reservoir. We also have a blind shih tzu who cannot navigate the woods with us when we go. I can carry him in my arms but while hiking it can hurt my back. I feel bad leaving him behind when we go on these trips because he has horrible separation anxiety and once he gets to the fishing spot he is fine (actually he loves sticking his feet in the water!).
We have been looking into backpacks to carry him in but most of them are bulky. Then we found these (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pet-Dog-Carrier-Bag-Backpack-Front-Bag-Travel-Walking-Easy-Pink-Black-Strip-S-/280754210191) and we were worried the shih tzu would be uncomfortable in this. Do you think it might put too much pressure on the groin area?
