Corgi Carrier Backpack Buying Guide

Searching for the perfect Corgi carrier backpack can be a daunting task. When we were in the market for one, we had to choose between two options. The most important considerations are a comfortable fit for both you and your Corgi (which may require sizing up), and selecting a reputable company with high quality products. Corgi carrier backpacks are a great way to bring your furry friend along on your adventures, and if you need some ideas for toys to pack in the backpack, check out our list of the 5 Best Corgi Dog Toys. It’s also worth noting that it is not recommended to leave your Corgi in the backpack for more than 30-40 minutes at a time, as the vertical position can put strain on their spine.

K9 Sport Sack

Benji and I going for a bike ride!

The K9 Sport Sack is the first one you’ll come across that’s recommended for Corgis. The backpack comes in a variety of styles (mostly just adding more pouches and pockets for more intense hikes and trips). I mostly use the K9 Sport Sack to transport Benji, my Corgi, when I want to bike around the city. He loves sniffing the air and the view over my shoulder. With the carabiner loop up top to fasten your Corgi securely in the backpack, and the leg holes, I never had any concern that he would hop out if he saw a squirrel. The materials do feel a bit thin but I’ve personally never had a problem with any ripping or tearing. One concern was definitely the price, though as a counter to that, there are customizations available including a velcro badge that has Benji’s name on it. It’s a nice touch but I don’t think it warrants the hefty price tag especially considering the lighter use of materials.

  • Price: $$$
  • Weight Range: 4 – 30 lbs
  • Summary: Personally tested and the bag I use with my Corgi. Materials are a bit thin, but also allows bag to collapse and be easily transported.

Little Chonk

The Little Chonk also comes recommended, I personally don’t have experience with this carrier but it was made popular by Maxine the Corgi. The materials seem to be better than the K9 Sport Sack (though I don’t have personal experience with this). This Corgi carrier backpack was designed jointly with veterinarians which offers some more peace of mind that your Corgi’s back will be safe. This guide will get updated when I get the product myself and offer some insight as it’s the second most popular Corgi carrier backpack. One negative appears to be the lack of a waist strap option. It’s also recommended to size up in this particular backpack to ensure a good fit for your Corgi.

  • Price: $$
  • Weight Range: Up to 50 lbs
  • Summary: A cheaper alternative to the K9 Sport Sack, has a brace to support the neck. Good quality materials.


In conclusion, you can’t go wrong with either, but I think if I was shopping for a Corgi carrier backpack right now I’d give the Little Chonk a try. I think the fact they consulted with Vets and had SGS (a leading company in verification, testing and certification) check the product makes it a more viable choice. The cheaper price point also makes it an attractive offering compared to the K9 Sport Sack.
