If dogs are really man’s best friend, then there’s no way that said man can simply leave them at home when heading out on a wilderness adventure. Bringing our beloved furry friends along for the ride is all part of the fun of being a dog owner, and Backcountry is well aware of that, which is why the outdoor retailer has come together with Petco to deliver a collection of adventure gear that’s tailored toward dogs.
The collaborative capsule features a variety of accessories, including a harness, a collar, and even a handy flotation vest. Included in the collection is the stain-and-odor-resistant Modular Dog Harness, which is comfortable and breathable thanks to its padded air mesh makeup. There’s also the handy, water-resistant collar, which features an adjustable buckle to ensure the perfect fit. Then there’s the aptly-named Dog Flotation Vest is designed to keep swimming dogs in a more natural position in the water.
While these wearable pieces are bound to come in handy on the trail at one point, the standout items here are the Dog Sleeping Bag and Foldable Dog Travel Crate. The former practically serves as a water-resistant, thermal kangaroo pouch… but it’s for dogs. The foldable crate is composed of a sturdy, stain-resistant frame with a padded floor and zippered mesh to keep your pet cozy and cool, and it’s designed to come along with you to give your pup a safe home away from home.
The joint effort’s entire collection of doggone good gear is now available to purchase through Backcountry, with pieces starting from $20.
