Mouse packs quite often.  The pack we have now is the Palisades I by Ruff Wear.  Most of our human equipment is from Recreational Equipment Incorporated (REI).  Some people follow a training schedule and others don't.  We don't.  We just try to do 6 miles a night at least 3-4 times a week during the Fall and Spring.  Check out the working dog page for updates of hikes. and has several packs.
