Highlands Dog Sleeping Bag - Lightweight, Packs Away Small



Great for: Backpacking, Camping, Travel - packable, durable dog sleeping bag with zippered opening and compression strap

The Ruffwear Highlands Dog Sleeping Bag is a lightweight, packable, durable dog's sleeping bag that is perfect for camping or weekend getaways!  Designed for those dog's that like to nest under cover at nights, a half-length side zipper allows the sleep bag to open wider for your dog to climb in and then can be zipped closed to retain your dog's body heat. 

The shell fabric outer is water-resistant and durable and internally it is insulated with compressible synthetic down.  This dog travel bed also has a built in neck baffle that folds in to keep cold drafts at bay. 

If your dog likes extra padding or if you need extra ground insulation, you can slide a Ruffwear Highlands Pad (sold separately) down an integrated sleeve on the bottom of the bag.  

We have included a video on the bottom of the page that goes over the features of all the Ruffwear Beds and shows how the Highlands pad can be inserted in an integrated back sleeve on the underside of the sleep bag.

The Highlands Sleeping Bag is easy to clean with a shake and is machine washable on gentle cycle.  When not in use, it can be compressed small and stored in its own stuff sack (included).

    Cool Kelpie

    thanks so very much to Caroline & team for amazing service & fabulous product that we & our hot Kelpie dog have enjoyed using !

    He loves them

    He loves them he lifts his feet to get them on improved his arthritis as it’s already 3 degrees here and the house has tiled floor they are like slippers for him

    Very happy

    Very bright red saddle bags arrived very quickly
    Really good fit for my 18-month old rottweiller girl. Easy to put on. Very smart. Very well made. Carries daily walk needs ie baggies and treats. Room for keys and extra leads if needed.
    I am happy that she is wearing a well fitted and comfortable product.

    Ruffwear dog harness

    Great harness, easy to apply and adjust.

    Best harness ever!!!

    We LOVE this harness for our Maggie. She is a rescue and engages in a lot of pulling on leash, either due to hyper arousal (excitement), or fear. With this harness, with the lead attached at the front, she literally barely even tries to pull! It’s super effective. We used to use harnesses that would slightly tighten upon pulling, which now I understand would have compounded her anxiety. This one is so much better for her, and also, such a durable design. It’s also SO bloody easy to put on and take off. We got the bright red which looks fab against her brindle coat. ☺️☺️ Super happy to recommend!
