She packs hers and I pack mine. I had a guy give me hell for making my dog carry my weight. I set him straight. Evidently he hasnt seen a working dog before. Maggie loves her job. I started on a progression for the weight and she can carry her water/food/bed/raingear for 3 days. Over that and I carry her food. Guy later passed us on his way back up the trail and shouted that "she better have a good bed tonight for having to carry all that weight.........people!! :-)
