Dog backpacks can be either dog carriers or pet backpacks to be worn by the dog. When it's not convenient for your pooch to walk by itself, such as hiking a steep grade or in a public place, dog backpacks enable you to carry your pet on your back. Dog carriers such as these provide hands-free movement for you in case you need to hold on or are doing something else with your hands. Other pet backpacks permit your dog to carry his own supplies, treats or water.

Q. I am going on a 6 hour flight with my 13 week old 5 pound puppy. Is it safe to give them a mild sedative to keep them calm for the duration of the flight? -- Lucy M.

Q. Dear PetRelocation,
My husband and I will be relocating to either Shanghai, China or Amsterdam, and I was wondering if I would be able to take my one-year-old Shih Tzu with me to fly overseas. Which airlines are most friendly to fly? Would they allow her to fly? She's healthy!
