Many dogs enjoy exercise and spending time outside just as much as humans do, and some breeds in particular need a good amount of exercise to keep them healthy. These include Labradors, Dalmatians, Border Collies, German Shepherds. Huskies and Weimaraners. In the past, you may have thought that it just isn’t possible to take your dog with you for some types of outdoor activity, but there are fewer barriers than you might think. This is partly thanks to brands like Ruffwear.

What is Ruffwear?

Ruffwear is the brainchild of Patrick Kruse, for whom being outdoors is simply a way of life. Whether he was hiking, canoeing, cycling or another outside adventure, Patrick was keen to find ways of including his canine companion in all his activities. Spotting a gap in the market for portable pet drinking vessels, Patrick quickly designed a prototype collapsible fabric bowl. This marked the beginning of Ruffwear.

Since that time, The Ruffwear brand has grown and developed, listening carefully to the canine needs identified by other owners and professionals. In 2008, Patrick learnt about the needs of avalanche dogs and their handlers, and in the following years, Ruffwear became the primary avalanche dog uniform supplier for U.S. ski resorts and international teams.

Ruffwear delight in sharing that all of their products are rigorously field-tested, meaning that they are suitable for even the most intrepid four-legged adventurers!
