First up, we have Whyld River’s DoggyBag—an all-in one pet sleeping system.

Weather forecast call for rain? Keep your canine companion warm and dry with this waterproof dog jacket from Ruff Wear. A fleece lining keeps your dog warm, while a nylon shell protects form wind and water. A leash portal makes it compatible with most harnesses, leg loops offer a secure fit, and a side buckle for easy release. Available from Ruff Wear for $79.95


MAGDOG is changing the game for performance dog gear with their proprietary MAGDOG system. A magnetic latching leash attaches to a companion collar or harness, and each piece includes a unique I.D. just in case Fido decides to take himself for a walk. Whoever finds them can use this I.D. to find who they belong to. The component pieces are available on MAGDOG, and range from $15-$55.

We have high-vis clothing and gear for ourselves, why not have it for our dogs? This next item, the Beacon, is designed to keep your furred friends visible even in poor visibility. Featuring a rechargeable LED light with three color options and three light modes housed in a waterproof casing, this high-performance safety light casts a bright, full-body glow to increase visibility. Available from RuffWear for $24.95

Last but not least is the Summit Pack Dog Backpack from EzyDog. This handy backpack is worn just like standard dog harness, and is the perfect size to pack your canine companion’s gear for a day hike or weekend trip. With ripstop material, a stainless steel D-ring for a leash, and an extra girth strap for extra security when making descents, this is a great addition to your outdoor gear—especially if you want your canine companion to accompany you.
