Instructables
Tired of carrying around baggies for poop, baggies of poop, leashes or food? Make some of these snazzy Duct Tape Dog Panniers, and have your four legged friend carry their own things. And if your really lazy, you can throw a bunch of your junk in there too. Keys, cell phone, peanut butter sandwich, rocks, whatever you want.

What a beautiful dog. How old is she and what breed?

The panniers look nice but I wouldn't over load them. Even when I see a mule loaded up, I feel sorry for them. lol.....women!

I'm sure she'll get used to the width adjustment and be proud she can help out.:)

The guideline for service dogs is a maximum of 10% of their weight once their growth plates have fused. Medium to large dogs mature between 24 and 30 months of age, small dogs mature earlier and giant dogs later. X-rays can verify the growth plates have fused.

How do you get the flaps to hold the top closed? And by the way this is AMAZING and I can't wait to make one for my dog! A step by step would be awesome too! Thanks for the great post!
You could probably tape or glue two magnets, one on the "box" and the other in the flap. Remember to check the polarity before you tape them. This sould be an easy fix.

this is awesome! i would make some for my cat, but my cat probably wont like them :P loving the 'ible it looks amazing and i might try
This looks amazing! Rumbly is ready to go. Do you think cats would benefit from paniers as well?

No, I see more of a wagon apparatus for cats.
I love that image :-D
Knowing our cats... Just what would be pulling the wagon?

I'm looking at making some softer cloth ones, so that there's less to catch on things, and they're more comfortable.

I'd put no more than 3-5% of the weight of the dog in there, and not at all for a dog under 12 months old due to still growing.

Another idea was to make up a tow-harness (like a horse) rig for our collie huntaway - see if he will tow a light wagon or a sulky around.

Pretty good! these can calm down some dogs too, it makes them feel useful and sort of busy, they like to feel they are doing something for the pack.

Is there anything underneath to hold it in place?

Nice panniers! Please tell me what breed of dog Rum is- I have a crossbreed who is the spitting image of her, and I'd love to know!

Could anyone help me design a safe, comfortable harness and small cart for Ruby? I have a fused and cantankerous back and could really use some help with the groceries, as I'm also squint and don't drive...

You know this would have made a great step by step instructable, for hints and tips on how to make a step by step intructable don't hesitate to ask me or follow one of the many guides people have posted...

I bought a commercial set of panniers for my dog, but having a followable instuctable written step by step with how you did it AND pictures would help if i wanted to make my own

Welldone for posting your first instructable though :)
rocks haha
Great idea and Rumbly is the perfect model!

Thanks Debbie, I think Rum was enjoying being the model, it seemed like she was really posing for the camera.

Nice design. Looks sturdy and functional. How does the pooch like it?
killyourself (author)  smirnoff043 years ago
Thanks! She seems not to even notice it very much. She has knocked into some cabinets and door frames, but I think she'll get used to them.
