I am a huge fan of dog packs, enabling a dog to carry up to 20% of his own weight in equipment. The dogs are a huge help to me when hiking!
Daika carrying water, her kibbles, the map and a rain coat.
In 2013 I have gone on a 5-day hike with Daika, Ebi and Ewok. Ebi carried the tent, Daika the food, Ewok the kitchen and the water and I only my clothes and the sleeping bag.
Starting off with Ewok, Ebi and Daika
First night out, we were pretty tired after 10 hours of hiking
Beautiful landscapes and Daika off-leash (yes, it's possible but under certain conditions)
Ewok on the summit
A little rest in one of the rare villages we passed
Kisses between Ebi and Ewok
It was really tough but be loved it!
