Giveaway: Tom Bihn Citizen Canine hip pack ($100 value)

Last week I posted a review of the new Citizen Canine hip/waist pack from Seattle company Tom Bihn. I liked everything about it except its price (and even that I could live with) and its lack of a way to hold a water bottle (and I came up with a workaround for that). I flat-out loved how it would organize the double-handful of objects I bring with us to dog parks: ChuckIt! launcher, two small ChuckIt! balls, water bottle, leash,  … Read more

Product review: New dog-walking hip pack from Tom Bihn

The last dog-walking hip bag I really liked was the OllyDog Walker, but it’s no longer available and there are days — especially hot days — when I look at it and think dang, that’s huge.

Yet another hip pack for dog walking

Another hip pack for dog walking

While looking for something else, I came across another hip pack for dog walking or going to the dog park: the WalkyBag, either “Pro” (fully loaded with leash, harness, poop bags, etc.) or “Custom” (with only the Gulpy-type bottle; suitable for people who already have the items the Pro is loaded with). It looks like it’s a bit bigger than the OllyDog Walker reviewed earlier by Dog Jaunt, but you might like having the extra pocket. Like the OllyDog Walker,  … Read more

Hip pack for walks and dog parks

When I set out for a walk with Chloe, my pockets are stuffed with treats, a clicker, the house keys, a roll of poop bags, my phone, deterrent spray and a Gulpy. If I’m going to the dog park, I might also wedge in a mini tennis ball. At night I add a flashlight. All’s well (or well enough) when it’s cold or raining, because I have jackets with endless pockets. But when the summer rolls around — and it  … Read more
