Patroller™ Leash

Inspired by working dogs and their handlers, the Patroller™ Leash is ideal for anyone who wants to keep a leash comfortably and conveniently on hand while their canine companion trains, works, or plays. This adjustable leash can be worn around the waist as a belt, allowing dogs and humans to transition smoothly between on-leash and off-leash without skipping a beat. Adjustable length from 30-40”, Ruffwear designed Tubelok™ webbing with reflective trim, Talon Clip™ is strong, secure and ergonomically designed for one-handed use. $29.95

A classic cold-weather utility jacket built with sturdy, durable materials to keep up with the most active dog.

New colors: Twilight Grey, Baja Blue and Red Currant. $64.95

Cloud Chaser™ Jacket

This breathable, waterproof, and insulated jacket extends activities in inclement weather, protecting against rain, snow, wind and cold. Three-layer soft-shell upper fabric protects dogs from the elements while the updated coated lower fabric sheds water, snow, and dirt. Zippered closure for high-performance fit. New colors: Blue Moon and Sockeye Red. $79.95
