Five-and-a-half-year-old MONO loves hiking and is more than happy to carry his own belongings on a long hike. This double-sided backpack has handy Velcro fastenings that adhere to a harness that’s strapped beneath. It allows MONO to carry his own food, water, and a first aid kit that includes disinfectant, bandages and an all-important pair of tweezers for the removal of ticks. Please don’t feel sorry for him, as a dog can typically carry up to one third of its own body weight, and MONO weighs a handsome 34 kilograms. His favourite destination is the TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK in Slovenia, which features the most gorgeous mountain lakes for some post-hike swimming.
