The dog pack is a good idea. Just make sure it is properly fitted to sit as far forward on the dogs shoulders as possible and watch for chafing. I'm a fan of RuffWear www.ruffwear.com/
but here are several good brands. You also need to gradually acclimate your dog to the additional weight. Start w/just the empty pack and gradually add weight. There are soft-sided collapsible water bottles you can get that work really well w/the dog packs.
Another option, depending on how much water you need, you can carry a hydration pack, clip a small, collapsible dog bowl to your belt and fill it from your pack.
Enjoy running w/your pooch. It is always more fun having a buddy.
