That mission has stood the test of time… and Ruff Wear continually strive to design and build performance dog gear that allows their four-legged friends to accompany us on their shared adventures, all while providing a level of safety and comfort in the great outdoors.
Because they're inspired by their outdoor pursuits– backpacking, skiing, river running, mountain biking – it's natural for them to utilize fabrics, hardware, materials and construction processes that have been proven in the environment they live for and play in. Their dogs (as well as inspired individuals, just like you, with "professional" canine testers) put their products through the paces, providing valuable feedback that motivates and drives Ruffwear's continuous product development.
At the end of the day, they believe it is the amazing connection with their dogs, and their ability to motivate them to get out and explore, that makes all the hard work worth the effort. Dogs encourage Ruff Wear to follow their nose just to see where the experience takes them. They improve their health, their lives, and their outlook… and ask for little in return. Combine a dog's appetite for exploration with the right equipment and you'll be prepared for yet another grand adventure.
