Landing Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars The Ruffwear Landing Pad is an easy to use, durable, canine-friendly sleeping pad. It has performed well in environments ranging from backyard evening retreats to overnight backpacking adventures. Only one size is available, which may be a limiting factor for large breeds. Additionally, packability should be considered when planning overnight excursions. I tested the Ruffwear Landing Pad along with my 5-year-old Vizsla, Roland, as a member of the Trailspace Review Corps. Roland and I traveled in… Full review

Highlands Sleeping Bag

rated 4 of 5 stars Over the course of the past two months, I’ve found the Highlands Sleeping Bag to be as much an asset to my backpacking experience as it has been for my dog, Roland. No longer am I awoken at night to the sensation of being shoved out of my sleeping bag by a dog looking for a warm place to sleep. Roland seems warm and cozy curled up in the Highlands Bag at night, and enjoys having a soft place to rest at camp during the day. At first glance, one might balk at the idea of toting a sleeping bag into… Full review

Palisades Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great multi-day pack for dogs. I have had this pack for about 3 years now and use it on my 70lb Border Collie Lab mix in the medium size. It doesn't seem to phase him a bit when we go out on multi-day hikes or even long day trips. It has handle on the top to help assist in getting over ledges, trees, or in and out of water. Comes with two collapsible water bottles that hold plenty of water for your dog as well as for you in a pinch or on a lazy day hike. On occasion the pack will lean to one side,… Full review

K-9 Float Coat

rated 5 of 5 stars When I was notified that we would be reviewing the Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat as Gear Brand Ambassadors for Backcountry K9, I was quite enthusiastic. Many others who paddle with their dogs had insisted that this canine life jacket is the best available. Now I would have a chance to test it out, and find out what all the shouting was about…well, now I am shouting! This is certainly a great life jacket for your dog. We have canoed with our dogs for many years, and have always put them in a dog life… Full review

Ridgeline Leash

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight leash, with a stretchable, bungee type aspect, which allows the dog to roam a bit without pulling on your arms. This is a compact, easily packed, leash suitable for those activities in which you want to have a quick leash handy. *Disclosure: I received this leash from, in my role as a gear ambassador. This leash is lightweight, (2 oz.), brightly colored, and has a bungee element which allows it to stretch from 2.5 feet, to 4.25 feet.  This allows your dog… Full review
