Dog Backpacks

 

Dog Backpacks are great for treks, hikes or days out - allowing your dog to carry some of their own gear (food, leads, etc).   They are also popular as a dog training tool - a rucksack for your dog can give them a 'sense of purpose' / focus, and to help high energy dogs expend energy. We stock Ruffwear Dog Backpacks (4 styles to choose from!) as we love the quality and durability of the range, and how they sit comfortably and stably on your dog.  

We'd love your feedback!

Have you enjoyed or dreamed of an epic 'dog-friendly' holiday with your pup?

A comfortable and quality running or walking lead

I have used many leads for running with my dogs and this one is excellent. It’s another quality Ruff Wear product that will be my go to running lead.

The Beacon - Safety Light

Harness for pleasurable dog walking

These are the second lot for my schnoodle and mini-schnauzer. The schnoodle wore his out running through the scrub whilst the mini backed out of his and lost it in thick dunes at the beach! Beware dogs with large shoulders and small heads! Definitely fantastic harnesses.

What I was looking for

I have a 50kg Swiss Shepherd... Who is much stronger than me. I originally had the singletrak harness/pack, I jimmed up front clip... As I Need it.
Great... Love it, front clip works well.
Fits what you need, water, bowl, poop bags, lead..
Bag is small enough that Falkor will happily run, (will not run with Palisade pack only trot)
Down sides...
Check your dog size... I automatically assumed that as Falkor fitted the L/XL singletrak that he would fit this one... He did, but there wasn't much room at all to expand... Literally wouldn't fit him if I let him get fat... While the singletrak has a lot more room to grow,
It basically has zero reflective bits... Just some of the front... If you have a fluffy dog... You will see their reflective eyes before you see the reflective strips... None on the sides.. just a small amount on the zip pully bits.
It lacks the extra attachment point that the single track has at the rear... Also seems to be made of a less rugged material for the bags than the singletrak
Still if I had to pick one I would pick this one... Over the palaisade/webmaster, single track, and flagline. Unless your dog is too small to carry their own water and poop.

Webmaster harness.

Maggie wasn’t sure about the harness at first but seems to like it now. She is a 30+ kg greyhound and very energetic, we have had a few incidents where she has slipped her martingale collar so we decided to look at harnesses. Several in our group suggested this one. We also bushwalk and Maggie would love nothing better than to chase the foxes and kangaroos on our walks. We have much more control on her now.
