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