The Ruffwear Knot-a-Hitch is the must-have camping accessory to give your dog the freedom to safely explore their new surroundings no matter where you are. 

Using climbing-inspired durable ropes, auto locks and other hardware the hitching system is quick to install. The easy-to-use tensioning system can be secured around two trees or a single post allowing your dog to investigate their new turf while safely tethered on their lead.

What's New?

We updated the shell material on the stow bag for improved durability and resistance to fading.

Tangle-Free Design 

A Ruffwear designed swiveling carabiner prevents your dog's lead from twisting and becoming tangled leaving you free to concentrate on all your new camping responsibilities like setting up the tent or lighting a campfire.  

Self Contained Storage

The convenient and durable stow bag keeps everything you need in one place and once attached provides somewhere to keep any excess rope ends leaving nothing flapping around that your dog can be distracted by (or chew!).


Made with strong kernmantle rope as inspired by mountain climbers the Ruffwear Knot-a-Hitch will quickly become an integral part of your outdoor adventures giving your dog freedom while keeping them safely by your side.
