The New Ruffwear Commuter Pack + A Giveaway

I bet you’re wondering what this fancy schmancy get-up I’ve got going on here is. Well my friends, it’s my new dog pack from my pals at Ruffwear!

The New Ruffwear Commuter Pack + A Giveaway

The Ruffwear Commuter pack is a rucksack for us dogs with a clean modern look. So it fits right in on the hiking trail or the urban commute.

It comes in sizes for all dogs and is easy to strap on so you can get out the door in a flash!

With lots of pockets for all your gear it’s the perfect way to give your dog a job no matter where you’re headed.

It’s important to remember not to overload your pack, and according to Cesar Milan 10 -12% of your dog’s weight is a good starting point. And remember all dogs are different and if you are unsure start by getting the okay from your vet.

Since us Dachshunds are prone to back issues my pack is always very light weight and balanced on both sides. Sometimes I even just carry it empty, because I still feel like I have an important job to do with it on!

I always dream of carrying around some delicious treats, because if you’re going to wear pockets on your back, then you might as well make sure they are stuffed with food!

In reality though, most of the time it’s filled with diapers and baby gear. Sigh.

Even if my Commuter Pack is filled with baby stuff, I still look super business-like when I head through town to work. And no one even knows what I’ve got packed inside, and if they ask, I just tell them it’s important business things.

The Ruffwear Commuter Pack comes in two colors, Cloudburst Gray (which I’m wearing) and Larkspur Purple.

As an added bonus, I feel like my new rucksack makes me look extra tough and strong. I’ve been telling all the ladies that I’m carrying 20lb weights in them (shhh! it’s our secret).

And I even look sweet from behind!

So if you’re looking for a great way to make your dog feel important with a job to do, then you might want to check out the Commuter Pack from Ruffwear. As with all of their gear I can’t recommend it enough, and their products truly do hold up year after year.

And now for the best part…

  4. Sawan04-24-17

    I love ruffwear items. I’ve thought about something like this for my doxie, but i wan’t sure if it would work with her being so small and low to the ground. Happy to see that not only is it possible, but very practical.

  5. JB04-24-17

    Hey Ammo – People will be even more impressed by you if they know you’re carrying baby gear instead of treats. You’re the best big brother-dog ever! Love you guys! XXXOOO

  11. Melinda Wharton04-24-17

  12. Melinda Wharton04-24-17

  23. Pam B04-29-17

    Hiya Ammo!!! I’m playing catch-up again (computer problems again), but I’m back now. What a great idea—get the pups to help out for a change, lol. I’m sure Rio and Misty would only want to carry treats, but I’d probably sneak in some baggies and a water bowl too. That pack is really neat. Thanks for having the giveaway. Blessed be, hugs and love!!! Pam, Misty, and Rio

  24. Brandon Sparks05-01-17
