Palisades Dog Pack
|Ruffwear Palisades Dog Pack - The Palisades Dog Pack from Ruffwear makes multi-day backcountry adventures possible. This fully-featured dog pack is built on the five-point adjustable straps of Ruffwear's Web Master Harness chassis which ensures load stability and comfortable weight distribution. The Palisades pack features removable saddlebags for rest stops and water crossings. Two collapsible, BPA-free water bottles are included, each with a 1L capacity. The load compression system secures the load for a more comfortable, compact carry. Easy-access stash pockets on top and coated zippers help keep moisture out. Reflective trim for added visibility in low-light conditions finish off this pack. When the weekend arrives, after you pack your gear, pack the Palisades Dog Pack for your best trail buddy!
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.

Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Maya and I have gone on over 200 hikes over the past 5 years. Most of the hikes are 1/2 day to one day hikes. Maya has always been equipment with the Palisades Pack (Small Size / Maya Weighs 50 lbs). The pack has enabled me to only carry water as Maya carries everthing else. The bag still allows her to run and case critters. After five years, the pack is still in perfect condition and just needs to be cleaned every 10-20 hikes. The pack is easy to use, looks great, rides perfect. The pack is easy to balance. The pack has never caused any physical problems to Maya. During steep rock climbs and climbs through icy conditions, the pack harness has come in handy either by me helping Maya over the rocks or by Maya helping me when I start to slip and slide on the ice (Maya always leads). Maya has had many compliments on her Palisades Pack.
I picked this up for my Australian Cattle Dog Gibson for his first birthday. He fits the small sized harness and pack and took to it right away. He now carries all of his supplies when we go on hikes in the hills or picnicking in the park. And some of my stuff as well like my tablet phone and keys. I really like that once we get to where we are going the pack easily clips off and he can stay in the harness and still play and run around. Even when out walking he is more focused and on the job when wearing the pack or just the harness. All in all I really like this pack and so does Gibson. I look forward to many more hikes and adventures with this pack.
