Dog Pack - Harness & Backpack for Stylish Pups

Upgrade Your Harness With a Backpack

Clip your leash to the back of the bag and take your pups for a walk just as you would with a collar or harness. Only now you can pack some goodies and look extra cute.

We’ve all seen the helper style saddle bags for dogs, but this dog backpack is equally as stylish as it is functional. Let them pack their own treats, doggy bags, water, hoodie and toys and look good doing it. It makes you smile watching them pack around their stuff (my favorite part).

Being a pug and frenchie owner and a backpack designer, the dog backpack was an inevitable adventure.

Fits Small Dogs of All Shapes! 

Tra la la

So many places to go!

Car Ride / Camping / Airport / Daycare / Dog Park / Weekend Getaway

Wear over your coat too! 

No more forgetting doggie bags! 

You can even pack along a water bowl, sweater, some toys and treats.

Sizing 

Size 'M' is perfect for medium size dogs. Measurements are: 15" - 23" around the neck 21"-27" around the chest and can accommodate 25 - 35lbs

Unfortunately at this time, we are not making large dog backpacks. If this is something you want us to pursue, feel free to drop a comment or send an email to hello@maggiemodena.com. If we get enough interest, we may just pursue it!

Dog backpacks will retail for $55 later.

For Kickstarter only, we'll be offering them at $45!

Production Timeline

Good news! The first 50 earlybird dog packs will ship on-time for the holiday as a thank you for being our first supporters.

If you’re looking for a holiday gift for friends and family and did not get a chance to grab the earlybird dog pack, we’ll send you a holiday gift certificate including a picture of your order and when they should expect their gift. Please note that regular priced dog pack gifts will not ship on time for the holidays, but this means they can open their gift twice!

Made With Care

The early prototypes have all been made in Milwaukee, WI. If this campaign is funded, we hope to continue manufacturing locally. All materials are sourced in the USA from great companies and kind people.

About Maggie 

Maggie Modena is the DJ alter-ego of Maggie Welsh, who entered this world as a shy child determined to live a bold and powerful life. Young Maggie struggled to express herself, but Maggie Modena knew no such limitations. She spoke her mind, acted without hesitation, and lived life with no filter. 

The two Maggies meld vividly in the Maggie Modena handbag line. Maggie Welsh brings her design experience from Nicole Miller, Franco Sarto, Lucky Brand, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and Maggie Modena lends her fearless ethos. The result is a series of handbags cut from loud, one-of-a-kind prints for the confident, adventurous woman.

Risks and challenges

We have lined up a factory and have a lot of experience in production. With that being said there are always challenges with producing large orders. We will be completely transparent with any delays in manufacturing and shipping.
