The Ruffwear Approach Pack redesigned for 2017 provides a full-day hiking pack for your dog which keeps all your essentials close by and ready for any adventures you find.

With excellent performance, fit, and functionality the Approach Pack comes complete with radial cut saddlebags creating a passive compression system that is form fitting and better load carrying. 

The design of the superior Webmaster harness frame has been incorporated in the Approach Pack. This provides a truly fantastic five-point adjustment system to ensure comfort when fitting your dog with their backpack.

The padded handle and non-slip girth straps offer good load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting meaning there is no obstacle to prevent you having a great day out.

Added extras to make life easier include external gear loops and a secure single piece aluminium leash attachment point when needed. Last but not least there is a low-light visibility reflective trim to keep your dog safe. 

It’s recommended that your dog carry no more than 25% 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.

    If using a pack on your dog for the first time you should ensure they are introduced to carrying loads slowly while ensuring the load is evenly distributed across both saddlebags.
