The medium fits my 47 pound dog great although she could have gotten away with a small as well. We've used it a few times so far in preparation for backpacking this summer. For the price she seems to be really comfortable and Ive had no issues getting her to wear it.m

If you own a dog, you will discover that they enjoy doing chores. I purchased this well-made OllyDog Back Pack for my dog and she is very happy with the fit, comfort and durability of this pack.
She is eager to pack garden tools and follow me around the yard, carry fruits from the gardens and even helps indoors with hauling the unclean laundry into the utility room.
Sierra Trading Post has never disappointed me in the quality of varied product they amass throughout the world. They are again spot on with the Olly Dog pack.
If you own a dog, and he/she is the type who enjoys collabotating on tasks--then you really need to buy this back pack. It will last for years--yes, it has the strength to withstand a lot of physical exertion. Remember, to measure your dog or dogs properly for a super comfort fit. Your dog will thank you, by his/her performance.

I love this product. As soon as I took it out of the box, I put it on my medium size, 60 pound dog. Fit was great. Not once did she try to pull it off! Stays secure. Although the picture makes the pack look bigger than it is, it still is a good size and will hold everything my dog needs for a few days out hiking and camping. Well made product.

The Olly Dog backpacks are amazing -- well-made, comfortable for our dog, adjustable, lightweight, great ventilation to keep our dog cool. We have a pit bull/American bulldog mix, who is only a year old. She has a lot of energy and needs more than simply a nice long walk each day. She needed a job, something to focus on. This backpack is the perfect answer. She loves it -- the issue is that when she sees it, she gets all wiggly and it's hard to get her to sit still. We connect the chest clasp first and then slip it over her head, then we only need to get the belly clasp. You can put ice packs in the pockets on a hot day (we put the ice packs in plastic bags, so they don't get the pack and dog wet). A dog can carry up to 10% their body weight, but work up slowly. Can't recommend it enough!

We just rescued a 7 month old belgian shepherd. We figured a pack would be a good thing to get him used to and give him a job to do. He wasn't so sure a first.. But quickly adapted and while hiking got lots of comments from other hikers on how will behaved and impressed they were by him "working" . We only put a few items in it and my only complaint is that is easily slides if not equally weighted to perfection... So not sure how that will effect more weight? For this I give it only 4 stars. And the medium fits a 58 lb dog with room to grow. So many great dog products at Sierra.. We will keep buying from them for sure.
The medium will fit a dog that is 50-80 lbs.

I have a Small Munsterlander that weighs 50lbs. His girth is about 26 inches,and a medium fits him with plenty of room to go bigger, and a little room to go smaller. I would recommend a medium. Awesome product, highly recommended for your puppy.

My Std Poodle has a 26" girth and the Med is almost too large for him. I suspect the Med would be perfect for your greyhound.
