NICREW Front-Facing Dog Carrier Backpack Review

All dog owners know that sometimes, your dog will just get tired of walking, or you’ll be out in areas where you don’t feel comfortable with them walking about.

However, not all backpack carriers are created equal, and we’ve had a hard time in the past getting a carrier that felt comfortable for Sami and for us.
