The Ruffwear Approach Pack pack is designed to be an everyday pack with excellent performance, fit and functionality. Comfort-fit Web Master Harness frame ensures good structure, stability, and load dispersion. The five-point adjustable fit accommodates dogs of all shapes and sizes. Good for one-hour to three-day hikes. Use to offset your load or for training and exercise. The Approach Pack gives your dog a load to carry and a job to do, generating instant four-legged motivation. The pack's harness should have an all-around snug fit for a stable load and to prevent movement or shifting of the saddlebags. Be sure that each saddlebag has an equal and balanced load. See the Fit Guide tab for proper sizing.
We were looking for a pack to help our 1 year old pitbull puppy to slow down and not pull on the leash when going for a walk. It works amazing! First, the pack is easy to put on him, even when hes squirming with excitement! I load it with a bottle of water on each side for weight. The design keeps the weight forward and balanced. When he wears it he acts like hes been given a serious job to do and follows commands. So, if youve been advised to try a pack for training, I highly recommend this pack.
We bought 2 packs for our Siberian Huskies. They werent wild about the packs at first, but now they hike and carry their own water/food without noticing. We just did a 12 mile hike and they were great! Packs fit well and are well constructed. Im considering some other items made by Ruff Wear.
