Ruffwear Haul Bag
Think of this as your dog’s go-to daypack. With 25 liters of storage and a wide opening, the Haul easily fits food plus other essentials.
ResQ Co. Strong Leash
A three-strand marine-grade rope makes this lead almost Kevlar tough—essential if your furry friend is a gnawer. And it looks handsome to boot.
Kong Ball with Rope
Unlike tennis balls, this Kong will withstand years of loving abuse. Go ahead: put the dense rubber toy through all manner of tugging and chewing.
Price from $12
Filson Dog Collar
The best way to land a date on the mountain? Bring along a cute dog. Bonus points if they’re rocking this leather collar, made from hides sourced stateside.
Kurgo Collaps a Bowl
The dishwasher-safe Collaps a Bowl folds down smaller than a Frisbee but holds an impressive 24 ounces of water when open.
Fishpond Westwater Bed
Buy your dog the Westwater—with its internal inflatable mattress and plush fleece top—and he’ll sleep more comfortably than you.
Ruffwear Singletrak Pack
The low-profile saddlebag design and five-point harness hug your dog’s body when he’s moving fast and light in the backcountry. Inside, 3.2 liters of storage space holds treats, a bowl, and a leash.
Kaufmann Mercantile Double-Sided Beechwood Brush
With beechwood pins that massage and condition, this brush tames even the gnarliest coats. But it has a soft side, too, with boar bristles that buff fur.
Whistle GPS Pet Tracker
If Fitbit and Garmin made a doggy wearable, this would be it. The waterproof device attaches to a collar and tracks activity patterns and location via an accompanying app.
Merrick Power Bites Treats
Even the frilly breeds need real meat. Good thing these treats are loaded with proteins like rabbit and turkey.
