Great features include:

  • Removable saddlebags/panniers - the saddlebags attach to the underlying harness system using aluminium & Hypalon fasteners so they can easily be removed at rest stops or river crossings.
  • Web Master Harness frame - modified with clips to attach the saddlebags, the underlying Web Master Harness has 5 points of adjustability (2 across the belly, and 3 at the chest) to ensure a great fit and pack stability on your dog - click here to see a video on how to adjust the Web Master Harness
  • BPA-free hydration bladders - Two 1-litre collapsible water bladders are included and fit easily into the side pockets so your dog can carry their own water.
  • Padded back handle - centered on the back is a handle that you can use to assist your dog up and over obstacles
  • Two lead attachment points - there is a single anodised, aluminium V-ring in front of the handle and another webbing loop further back
  • Other key features - cross-load compression system to secure pack contents, side and upper statsh pockets on both sides of the pack, external gear loops and reflective trim for better low-light visibility.

Sizing

Available in 3 sizes, the Palisades Pack is designed for mid to large sized dogs who are physically fit.  If you need a pack for a smaller or less fit dog, check out the Approach Pack, Commuter Pack or Singletrak Pack.

To choose the correct size, measure around your dog's girth/chest.  It is important that the pack fit snugly so that it does not shift and stays stable.   We do not recommend sizing up just to get extra capacity.  

* 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, over a period of days or weeks, work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.

 Size Fits Chests Measuring Capacity Weight of Pack
S 56-69cm (22-27") 12.5L 0.8kg
M 69-81cm (27-32") 17.5L 0.84kg
L 81-107cm (32-42") 24L 0.98kg

Float Coat XS

I’m using this product for kayaking with my cavoodle, she is only 5kg and this life jackets has been working very well. The handle is sturdy and it’s very easy to pull her back in the kayak. The yellow makes her very visible. Very good quality and happy with this product. Would recommend and buy again.

Excellent harnesses

We use these for our two staffies. Great material, easy to adjust, very secure and easy to get on and off! Love them!

Houdini no more!!

We have a very energetic 2 year old little dog, she had rolled or backed out of two different types of harness. Chatting over the fence with a lady walking her dogs, she recommended your 'Houdini' harness - we bought an XS and it has been an absolute roaring success. Fantastic to be able to walk Lily (known occasionally as Larrikin Lily) without having the worry of slipping out of her harness. Worth every cent. Will send a photo one day ( when I know how) - her tail is long and silky white (Maltese mother), poodle nose and black curls (Poodle/Dalmatian Dad), black spots Dalmatian. Quite a show stopper.

Chain Reaction Dog Collar

Replaces my old leather and slightly rusty chain collar. Fabulous easy wear, great training tool and looks super. Better than leather as it dries quickly when wet. Stylish highly recommend

Ruffwear Harness

We love our ruffwear harnesses, we even use one for our doggy guests
Awesome colours too
