Outdoor Gear for Your Dogs


Save to a List Saved

OK, we’re going to go ahead and state the obvious: Bend loves dogs. And dogs love Bend. Endless trails, pristine lakes, amazing parks, and a main street lined with water bowls…there are endless opportunities to keep happy tails wagging. You know who else loves dogs? Patrick Kruse. Raised in the Sierras, he learned at an early age that every outdoor adventure is better with a dog by your side. He also figured out that adventuring dogs (and their people) are happiest when they have the right gear, so in 1992 he fashioned a collapsible canvas dog bowl in his garage and Ruffwear was born. Flotation devices, packs, collars, and leashes followed, and today Ruffwear performance dog gear can be found around the world. But Patrick and his team remain true to their passion for enhancing and inspiring exploration for outdoor adventurers and their human companions. Dog beds, dog protective booties (cue the video camera when your pup first wears these…trust us), harnesses, toys, every Ruffwear product is built to last, thoroughly tested, and thoughtfully designed for your dog’s comfort and fun. Gear up online or at your favorite pet retailer, then leash up your best friend and get out there.
