Our fact of the week is :
Siberian Huskies like to pull on a leash!
I know what your thinking . . .
"Thank you Captain obvious, they are huskies, it is what they were bred to do!"
BUT there are ways to teach your sibe how to walk well on a leash. Although I am still trying to figure out how to get them better leash manners, I have done alright.
Today I am happy to be reviewing the Kurgo Wander Pack.
Now, in case your wondering what a doggy backpack has to do with leash pulling, read on, and you'll find out.
I love the fact that it also has a rear mounted leash hook.
The pack also has a unique adjustable saddle bag to fit the size of your dog AND an added bonus is that it is weather resistant.
I was so excited to try the pack on Koda when it came in the mail!
To my surprise, Koda almost looked proud to be wearing it!
I had anticipated him being a tad uncomfortable wearing this at first, however, he showed absolutely no signs of discomfort!
As you can see from the short video, he barely seemed to notice the pack was on him.
I even had filled water bottles in the saddlebags for weight.
The dog packs are said to give your dog a sense of purpose.
Since huskies are a working breed, it can be of great benefit to make them feel "useful."
By adding weight to the pack, you are giving your husky more of a workout, therefor they burn more energy. This means they are getting more exercise, in turn, their need to pull lessens.
Aside from giving your husky the extra exercise they thrive for, the Wander Pack is also great for carrying things on a hike, or even a long walk.
Ex : poop bags, water for your dog, treats, or anything else you may bring on your walks!

I was so interested in these packs and how they work for others, that I rounded up a few people, to get their statements on how the packs worked for them.

In conclusion, I have been super happy with the Kurgo Wander pack so far.
I will keep you all updated since we are still testing the pack out.
Something to keep in mind :
There are numerous ways to aid you in leash pulling, however training is #1.
By using an aid, such as a backpack or a head halti, combined with consistent training, you can absolutely have a husky (or any breed) who walks well by your side.
