Default Dog saddle Bags

I'm the guy that keeps asking Dog Questions. Does anyone know of a good brand of saddle bag that can accomodate discs. I've looked at several websites, but obviously all of the reviewers have used their saddlebags for camping and day hikikng. I want to know if anyone has DG experience with any brands or could make any recommendations. I don't have the dog yet so I don't know the size (probably 35-50 lbs) but I am looking to get the pack simultaneously to start training right away. ANy info would be great.

i heard about a guy who got a spare piece of canvas and sewed the top and sewed a belt on the bottom. i was told it worked really well. might be worth 100 bucks or so.

I love the idea and have even worked on putting a couple of the cheaper Innova bags together to create a bag that a dog could carry. You'll probably want to find some way to attach it to a harness collar. Just some ideas even thought they do require some work on your part.

As someone who has experience with dog packs on the hiking trail, I have a word of caution. If your dog isn't over 50lbs., the size pack that will fit him won't fit discs. You're not going to be able to get discs into a dog pack that's anything less than a medium, or depending on the brand, a large. These are usually designed to fit what we think of as "large" dogs (think Greyhound, German Shepherd, or Rottweiler). So if you want a dg pack dog, you should consider either working with a large dog or finding a way to adapt the saddlebags on your dog's "small" dog pack.

I've got no help on the bag front, but I have seen one dog on the course with discs. Smallish dog -- probably 20-25 lbs. The owner had taken a dog harness system and attached a small disc golf bag to the top (holding probably 10-12 discs). The bag was on the dog's back, and he said he didn't have any problems. Dog would follow him around, come when he called, and bring him discs... very cool to see.

So if saddlebags don't work for a small dog, this might be an option.

go to www.rei.com and type dog into the search box, several items come up. I would go to the store with some discs and make sure they fit before you purchase though. but this is a start.

when you do get your dog, please post a pic so we can all see it!

Thanks for the advice. I guess this is some more amo for talking my wife into a little bigger dog. I have a local REI that I'll check out. You can bet once I get the dog and the pack pictures will be up immediately.
