8 Dog Products for Your Next Outdoor Adventure
Ah, fall. The season of leaves crunching beneath your boots and seeing your own breath. Just as you’re breaking out the sweaters, scarves and hats, your dog should also have his own gear for cool-weather excursions.
In that spirit, we’ve scoured the market to bring you our favorite items for adventurous dogs. Whether you’re camping, hiking or boating, some of these products are essential — like a first aid kit and reflective safety items. Others, like fashionable jackets and a cool harness with a camera mount, would make great early holiday gifts for your canine companions.
Check out our gallery, and let us know what’s on the packing list for your next fall adventure.
Ruffwear Summit Trex
As winter approaches, we’re all thinking about how we can protect our dogs from cold-weather hazards like frozen sidewalks and deicing chemicals. These Summit Trex boots from Ruffwear will do the trick. And remember: While we humans measure our shoe sizes based on the length of our feet, dog footwear sizes are based on the paw’s width.
Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness With Camera Mount
Capture your entire hike, kayaking adventure or camping trip from your dog’s point-of-view with Kurgo’s Tru-Fit Smart Harness with Camera Mount. The harness straps onto your pup’s chest or back and is compatible with video cameras like GoPros and Sony Action Cams (which are not included).
C. Wonder Quilted Nylon Dog Jacket
A weekend in the woods doesn’t mean that your trendy dog has to give up all semblance of style. We absolutely adore this Quilted Nylon Dog Jacket from fashion label C. Wonder. The coat’s cotton lining is designed to help keep canines warm on outdoor excursions.
Walks 'N' Wags Canine Friendly Pet First Aid Kit
No matter how careful you are, accidents happen, and you need to be prepared for injuries while exploring the great outdoors. Walks 'N' Wags’ compact bright orange first aid kit contains everything you need: bandages, gauze, tweezers, antiseptic and more.
L.L. Bean Stowaway Dog Kennel
Storage space is usually pretty limited when you’re traveling, so L.L. Bean came up with a dog kennel that's collapsible, portable and stowable. The rugged kennel is water-resistant, helps protect against bugs or ticks, and is made from materials that can stand up to your pooch’s claws. The spacious kennel comfortably fits a dog up to 100 pounds.
No need to lug your pup’s bed from campsite to campsite. DogTread’s new K9FitBed conveniently rolls up just like a yoga mat and has a handy carrying strap. In fact, the bed is made out of repurposed yoga mat materials, so it’s not only comfy, it’s environmentally friendly. Plus, every K9FitBed comes with a stretching poster, so you and your canine can get in a good Downward Dog or chatarunga dandasana before catching some much-needed shuteye after your adventure-filled day.
Ruffwear Bivy Cinch
Alcott Essentials Visibility Collection
Sometimes the best parts of outdoor adventures happen after the sun goes down — walks on the open beach, nighttime hikes, stargazing. Making sure your dog is visible to you and other adventurers is absolutely essential to everyone’s safety. The new Alcott Essentials Visibility Collection features reflective harnesses, jackets and bandanas for canines — and even matching vests for humans.
Alcott Essentials Visibility Collection, available at Petco for $11.99 to $23.99.
We love the Kurgo camera mount harness so much that we wanted to share with you a GoPro video we captured of Vetstreet dog Hollie's daily adventures. Check it out!
