Ruffwear - Approach Pack

Regular price £109.95 Sale price £98.95

The Ruffwear Approach Dog Backpack allows your dog to carry trail necessities while out hiking

This handy pack is essential for your adventures. With excellent fit and functionality, your dog's ability to carry a load is efficient and safe while promoting your dog's instinct to explore. The pack features an integrated harness, which allows you to effectively control your dog on the trail, while enhancing the stability of the backpack. Thanks to the streamlined yet stable design of the harness, as well as the lightweight materials, your pooch is comfortable and secure when carrying loads!

It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25% of its body weight in its dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack.

Top Tip - The sizing guides for this harness are 100% accurate  in terms of product size and fit. The vast majority of customers who measure correctly get a fit but do note all dogs are different and sometimes their physiology doesn't quite suit the style. We welcome returns/exchanges if you don't get the fit you like but do ensure that the item is still in new condition when returning it.
