WHAT'S IN YOUR BARKING BAG?

Part harness, part backpack and full out awesome accessory - our amazing CHARLIE'S BACKYARD | Charlie's Bag Backpacks are a must-have item for any busy beast. But what do dogs keep in their bags, you ask?

We caught up with some of our favorite backpack-wearing canine customers to find out.

What do you keep in your bag?

I love to carry my favorite greenie treats, the balls my humans throw for me, snacks, more snacks, my poopy bags, and on hot days - my ice cold corona chew toy (with a slice of lime, of course).


 

Where do you like to wear your bag?

I wear it to the airport and on my really long walks. I like to to sport it when I travel to Brooklyn or Queens from Manhattan. You might spot me around Harlem wearing my backpack too!

How do people react when they see you in your backpack?

Once I was walking around Chelsea with my backpack on, and a large group of tourists all took turns snapping photos with me. They were so excited that they took photos carrying me, on the steps with me, group photos with me, and even photos with them sitting on the ground with me! People love my backpack!



Where do you like to wear your bag?

I like to take my backpack on hikes or long walks in the park. Now that I’m older Mom makes me carry my own stuff...but I don’t mind!

What do you keep in your bag?

Obviously I like to keep treats (the most important thing in my bag!), a ball to play fetch, a collapsible dish for food or water (very necessary on long walks!), edible bubbles (because why not! It’s so fun to stop, play & poop bubbles), a squeaky toy (just incase I want to lounge & play), poop bags (another must for anywhere we go) & an article of clothing just in case of a sudden change in weather.

How do people react when they see you wearing your bag?

People always stop me when they see my backpack. People say it’s the cutest thing they’ve ever seen - and others say it’s hilarious yet a smart idea. I love all the attention I get with my backpack. It makes me feel unique & special!

1 year old, French Bulldog, 18 pounds (Large Backpack)
 

What do you keep in your bag?

I like carrying my favorite treats, of course! A girl can't function without some munchies. I also carry my favorite toy so I can play with it when watching humans just isn't cutting it. Poop bags are also essential because I like to clean up after myself, and I never forget my super awesome on-the-go bowl that keeps me hydrated and refreshed at all times!

How do people react when they see you wearing your bag?

People always stop to ask where I got my backpack - it's just the life of a stylish girl like myself! It also brings attention to all the boys on my block. Everytime I walk down my street I always have this song in my head " My backpack, brings all the boys to the block, I can tell you where to get one, But I have to charge. I know you want one, La la-la la la, Show it off, Lala-lalala, the boys are watching."
 



 
2.5 years old, Scottish Terrier, 20 pounds (Large Backpack)

 

What do you keep in your bag?

1. Balls, because I never know when my pawrents are going to let me off leash to play. I also leave room in my bag for any toys that I find in Central Park!

2. Treats, because why not? Anytime is a good time for a snack.

3. Paw Balm! NYC can sometimes make my pads dry, so I always carry it to keep my paws soft and smooth. Especially after all the digging in Central Park.

4. Dry Shampoo, I like to stay looking fresh so I bring it because I never know what I’m doing. I literally never know until my pawrents walk me there!

5. My ID, so I can get into all the fun puppy play times.

6. My bandana, to take me from day to night. You never know who you're gonna meet!

 

 

How do people react when they see you in your backpack?

II constantly get stopped and told how cute I am when I’m wearing my pack. I just look at them and tell them, “I’m just out here living my best life.”

 

Where do you like to wear your backpack?

Central Park and the Ramble trails, Riverside, and The Pier - basically everywhere I go! I look so good in it, and it matches my collar. It’s also good for the long car rides to my summer house, since I can keep all of my necessities in my bag for easy access. Fashion meets function!



 

"As an independent woman, I feel empowered with the ability to carry my important belongings with me on the go. When I wear my Charlie's Backyard backpack, I look good, feel good, and am sure to never arrive to the park without my ball!"

What do you keep in your bag?
II always keep a ball, poop bags, my rainbow hat, and of course, cash for some ice cream truck goodies.
 
Where do you wear your bag?
I'm a Brooklyn girl, so mostly in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
 
How do people react when they see you wearing your bag?
People always react with a smile and positive commentary...how could they not?! I gets a lot of "OH MY GAWWD THAT'S ADORABLE!" in our park, which I eat up with the biggest smile. I feel really special when receiving that kind of attention!
 


GEORGE | @georgenycorg
 

2 years old, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, 17 pounds (Medium Backpack)

What do you carry in your bag?
I love carrying treats and toys in my backpack. It’s also super handy to carry a change of clothes, or whatever I was wearing if I get too hot! Plus, it’s a really snug harness for nervous puppers like me who like to stay busy.
 
How do people react when they see you wearing your bag?
People FREAK OUT when they see me wearing my backpack. I’m used to the puparazzi snapping my pic...but people go wild for this look!

What do you keep in your bag?
Human adults always seem shocked that I have my own backpack and they ask my mom, “what does she keep in her bag?!” Well, Queen Roo always carries a crown (from Dog & Co.!), treats for snacking, and in the front pocket - poop bags because mom says I’m old enough now to carry them myself.
 
Where do you wear your bag?
My favorite is traveling with my backpack to my grandma and grandpa’s house for a sleepover. Then my mom puts in an extra sweater, rain booties just in case (because no one likes getting their feet wet in the rain), and a cute as hell bandana.
