|I would never not give my dogs food on a hike. They burn way too much energy, hiking 10 miles in one day, over a period of several days, and carrying all their stuff in packs, as well as side-hikes and whatever play they may do in-between. They'd lose too much weight for me to be comfortable doing that. If I can't feed them, I'm either not bringing them, or not going.
I live in bear country too, so all that's gotta be hung up nice and high if bear boxes are not available. I don't usually take a very thick rope with me, so whatever's going into the bear bags usually has to be somewhat light weight. On longer trips, I'll splurge and buy dehydrated food, but for shorter trips, I'll just hope the rope will hold the weight of frozen raw.
