Ray Allen G-Hook Backpacks

It goes without saying that professional dog handlers can get a little frustrated when trying to juggle all of their tactical dog equipment while they’re in the field. Thankfully, our team has developed the perfect solution for handlers with a lot to carry: G-Hook Backpacks.

Take The Burden Off Your Shoulders

Our tactical backpacks all allow dog handlers to carry all sorts of K9 equipment during routine training or during real-world missions. But carrying all of your gear in a clunky backpack weighs trainers down and is a real burden (no pun intended).

Instead of toting all that equipment around by yourself, why not let your working dog take care of some of the load too?

Our G-Hook Backpacks attach to any dog harness that features loops on both sides of the piece. The backpacks consist of two saddlebags connected by a heavy-duty strap that runs under your dog’s stomach. The G-hooks are designed to easily slide into a harness’s loops and are meticulously engineered to stay put in any weather conditions.

We make both two-hook and three-hook dog backpacks to accommodate any-sized harness. The three-hook backpacks measure 13" wide x 7" tall x 4" deep, while the two-hook models are 8" wide x 7" tall x 4" deep.

The bags are made of 500-denier Cordura and feature a heavy-duty zipper across the front. Handlers can put nearly any item in these bags and rest easy knowing they’ll stay secure.

Keep All Of Your Gear In One Spot

Everything from your handy dog muzzle to an extra collar fits neatly inside our backpacks. Our backpacks are also perfect for holding dog treats and reward toys for use when your working dog is on their best behavior.

Although our dog backpacks are designed for nearly any harness, they work best on a few of our top sellers. The Icon Harness, Icon Air Harness, Modular LLC Harness, Ultimate Harness, and Guardian Harness are your best bets if you want to get the most out of your G-Hook Backpacks.

Be sure to check out our Harness Comparison Chart and Harness Sizing Guide to ensure you’re getting the perfect harness for your working dog.

Keep The Weight Off Your Dog’s Back

You’re certainly not alone if you’d rather weigh yourself down than accidentally put too much weight on your dogs and hurt their spine. As industry experts, we take your dog’s safety into account when designing all of our dog harness accessories.

Whether you get a two-hook or three-hook model, the heavy-duty bags are a tapered D-shape designed to allow the weight of the items inside each bag to fall to the bottom.

The farther the weight falls to the bottom of the bags, the less pressure it puts on the centerline of your dog’s back. Our backpacks are guaranteed to fit safely and comfortably when worn correctly, so dog trainers don’t need to worry.

Plus, even weight distribution in the bags helps prevent the contents from shifting and tumbling around as your dog runs.

The secure fit afforded by even weight distribution, the thick under-belly strap, and the fact that nearly any item fits in the bags make our G-Hook Backpacks perfect for any type of K9 work.

Whether you’re in the field some detection training or you’re enjoying the weekend weather on the hiking trail with your adventure dog, be sure to slide our G-Hook Backpacks onto your dog’s harness.
