Go Guide

Our Ruffwear pack has some inspiration for ways you and your dog can get outside and enjoy the gift of time together. Looking for gear? Don’t worry, we’ve got that, too.

It’s that time of year again. That familiar feeling of tired muscles pulses through you – a feeling earned from gliding through cross country tracks. Your nose stings from leftover frost as you shrug off layers of scarves and mittens. As you help your pup out of her jacket and boots, she nuzzles up to you – resting by the crackling fire.

These moments are the true gifts of the season.

Our Ruffwear pack huddled together to brainstorm our favorite pup-approved  outings. We highlight how to go make those memories and discover the lasting gifts these experiences bring. And, if you're looking for gear, we've got that, too.

Go, Dog. Go!

GO FOR A RUN

"Lennon never fails to make me laugh when we're out for our run." And, here’s the gear you can both count on to to hit the trail running.

GO HIKE & CAMP

"Backpacking and camping help us get away from it all – the hectic pace and distractions of everyday life." This gear will have you packing up and heading out with your dog.

GO SKI

"The gift of having this experience with Lu is that she reminds me that everything can be an adventure." Snow seekers, this go guide and gear are for you.

GO RELAX

"My relationship with Artie brings me joy and comfort every day. As his 12th birthday is upon us, I remember that each day together is a gift in itself." Ready to wind down? This guide has you covered.

GO GET OUT THERE! 

None are better experts of living in the moment than our tail-wagging loved ones. Follow your dog’s example and choose moments of play and exploration this season.
