    Hound Runner

    Our little maniac is loving our runs together, the vest seems to give him plenty of mobility to sprint full speed, climb things we are going over, and carry his own things.

    Dog Running Vest of My Dreams!

    I had a Ruffwear pack that survived many adventures for 11 years. Because it wasn't designed for running, I only used it when hiking and would have to carry extra water galore while trail running with my dogs. When it was time to retire my old pack, I saw this vest and could not have been more excited! It's sleek design is more ergonomic and prevents jiggling and consequent chafing. The only thing I wish it had was a small handle, which I often utilized on my old pack when I had to quickly grab my dogs. The breathable mesh is perfect for my home's humid weather.

    Loving this Running Vest!!

    Love this running vest! I was using a Gentle Leader when running with my big ole dog, which she hated. Tried this Running Vest and she is so much better controlled and HAPPIER! Thank you, Ruffwear!

    Excellent customer service and product.

    Great fit--my dog was at the border between two sizes. Ruffwear was very helpful in ensuring that I purchased the proper size. My dog loves it.
