A dog that wears a backpack is most certainly not a new concept. Dog packs go back as far as the world wars and probably even further. Canine backpacks have improved though, along with our knowledge of dog anatomy, so they are more suitable and comfortable than ever before. Ruffwear are certainly leading the market with great canine equipment and the Ruffwear Approach Pack meets the same standards of quality, comfort, and ease of wear as the rest of their active dog gear.
Features of the Ruffwear Approach Pack
- Breathable and flexible harness base for optimum comfort
- Zipper Saddle Bags
- Five points of adjustment for a tailored fit
- Two durable leash attachment points
- Streamlined design with plenty of room to store essentials
The Approach Pack is designed for everyday wear and can be worn by your dog on multi day hikes and outings.
This pack based on the Webmaster harness frame ensuring comfort, a great fit and no mental or physical stress to your dog as they wear it. Five adjustable points ensure a comfortable and tailored fit for your dog, no matter what activities they will be doing whilst wearing the pack. The design has forward weight saddlebags which are streamlined with refined volumes, ideal for bringing along all the essentials like extra water, dog boots, first aid supplies and treats. With a useful handle for canine manoeuvrability, the Approach Pack is a great way to help your dog be independent on long hikes and camping trips.
Recently, the pack has been designed to have more breathability and flexibility in the perforated and moulded body of the harness, which means ultimate levels of comfort for your dog. The bold colours of the Approach Pack are long lasting, and the “flopper stopper” system makes it easy to stabilise the saddlebags against the harness.
Added extras to make life easier are reverse coil zippers, external gear loops and two leash attachment points, including an aluminium V-Ring and a reinforced, durable webbing loop. Not forgetting the Ruffwear low-light visibility reflective trim for staying seen on those after dark adventures.
It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25 - 30% of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as they get accustomed to wearing the pack.
