Swimming in alpine lakes, trekking up mountain peaks, and don’t forget those tent cuddles – these are some of the priceless memories we gain from camping with our dogs. Hit the trails with your Highlands™ Dog Sleeping Bag and Quencher™ Packable Dog Bowl. Here are the gifts Ruffwear employees Elena & Baya gain from camping together – and their must-have gear for the journey!
The GO: "Backpacking with my dogs is one of our most favorite activities to do together – quiet time on the trails, soaking up sunshine, swims in alpine lakes and best of all, cuddles in the tent."
The GIFT: "Backpacking helps us get away from it all – the hectic pace and distractions of everyday life. It gives us the gift of peace. When cuddling in a warm tent or jumping into a brisk lake with my dogs, I feel a new level of closeness to them – and to nature."
