Approach Dog Pack
|Ruffwear Approach Dog Pack - The Approach Dog Pack by Ruffwear is ideal for day hikes or overnight adventures. Attached saddlebags feature an efficient, weight-forward design while the Web Master Harness frame provides load stability and weight distribution. Padded assistance handle makes it easy to help your dog up and over obstacles. A single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring leash attachment provides a secure leash attachment point. Reflective trim provides visibility in low-light situations. It's recommended that your dog carry no more than 25 - 30 percent of their body weight in their dog pack. If your dog is new to dog packs, start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing the pack. Lightweight construction and strategic padding keep canine sidekicks comfortable over the miles with the Ruffwear Approach Dog Pack.
Sizing for the Ruffwear Approach Dog Pack:
Girth: measurement around widest part of rib cage
The fit of this pack is amazing! Even with an uneven load there is no shifting, which is a problem we've had with other packs. There is plenty of room in the pockets, I've already packed boots, food, a Cloud Chaser, and the water bladders from our SingleTrak pack. Even with this kind of load the pack pockets don't smack against my dog's sides when he runs! The small pockets on top are really handy too. My pup is 72lbs with a 31" girth and the medium pack fits perfect. The orange color also looks great on him (he's chocolate with rust accents).
This is Stryders second approach pack. He is 110 punds with a 35 inch chest. We got the large in the older style and it's been great but never fit snug on him (should have gotten Medium but I am dumb and ignored the advice). I called Ruffwear and they explained to me that the new packs don't have the overlap in the sizes and the new large would be perfect. It totally is perfect!!! Fits like a glove and the new extra pockets are going to come in really handy for our overnight hikes!
