The Approach Pack by Ruffwear is a great camping and trekking dog backpack that is ideal for day hikes or overnight adventures. Made from 420D ripstop nylon, it is rugged and durable, yet lightweight, dog rucksack that has a comfortable, streamlined design that, when fit properly, will stay stable on your dog's back.
The Approach Pack is available in 4 sizes and 2 bright 'hi-viz' colours - Meadow Green or Orange Poppy. Scroll down the page for sizing instructions.
To determine the best size for your dog, measure around your dog's girth/chest - just behind your dog's front legs - then compare it to the chart below. Be sure to measure around the widest part of your dog's chest (measure around it just like you were measuring around your own chest). Click here for a video on how to measure your dog's chest.
It is important for the pack to fit snug.Just like with saddlebags on a horse the pack should fit snugly so it stays stable and doesn't shift and rub.
Do not size up just to get extra capacity. Always size by the chest measure.
* PLEASE NOTE: it is not recommended that your dog carry more than 20% of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with an empty bag and gradually work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.
