2020 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).

    Great harness for a Houdini whippet. Now no longer able to escape!

    Flagline Dog Harness with Handle - lightweight, adventure dog harness

    Thank you

    My dog had an fibrocartilaginous embolism or FCE just before Christmas and needed a harness asap that would be useful to his rehabilitation. Canine Spirit got his harness to me so quickly considering the time of the year with covid. Thank you

    Saved the marriage!

    My wife was always unhappy with the treat pouch she had been using (& our dog wasn't all that impressed either) so a hunting I did go...found your Treat Trader, ordered on line (we live in Australia) & all is well in love, treats & marriage!

    Great product!

    My dog came unclipped and ran off a few times using the normal lead. No more! The lockable carabiner gives me so much peace of mind. Thanks
