Never heard of Ruffwear? For the backpacking or hiking enthusiast with a dog, Ruffwear is a must have! They have many wonderful items available, including this Approach Pack, which is perfect for day and overnight hikes, and just plain recreational use. Load it up with lightweight items like toilet paper, or simply have your dog carry your keys while walking at a local park. Working dogs will especially enjoy being given a job as they carry plastic baggies (to pick up after the dog, of course!), water bottles, or cell phones. Another perk of the backpack is that many dogs who pull hard will be easier to walk without having to wear prong or choke collars. Here are the features of the Approach Pack:
- Attached saddlebags with lightweight streamlined, go-fast shape
- Weight-forward saddlebag design for ideal load-carrying position
- Trail-savvy details like coated zippers, high-visibility reflective trim, external gear loops, and durable construction
- Comfort-fit Web Master™ Harness frame ensures good structure, stability, and load dispersion
- Five-point adjustable fit and extended size range to accommodate dogs of all sizes
This is a great gift for your pup and will last for a long time, as these packs are very durable! They are $75 at Ruffwear. Be sure to visit the website and read all of the great reviews for more uses!
