Two events on Saturday, February 13, left our tails wagging, but our bodies panting, as we geared up for a fitting event at REI in Bend, Oregon, and a Demo Sale at our Headquarters.

At one time, we had the largest and smallest dogs in Bend at our booth

Winterfest, a popular winter sport event in Central Oregon, was the perfect excuse to hold dual events for active outdoor dogs–so that’s exactly what we did.  Beginning at 1pm, we hosted a fitting and demo event at REI, where dogs were encouraged to come down and get a professional fitting of dog boots, coats, and lifejackets.  In addition, REI offered 10% off all Ruff Wear gear for the event.

Dog-friendly events allow us to properly measure and size dogs for their Ruff Wear gear

Meanwhile, beginning at 2pm, Ruff Wear held a sale of our used/demo/sample gear at our Headquarters.  This sale is a great opportunity to get slightly used gear at a killer deal–sometimes 70 percent off MSRP!  A portion of the proceeds from the sale went to benefit the Central Oregon Trail Alliance (COTA) to help improve trails, including Wanoga Sno-Park–a dog-friendly cross-country ski and snow-shoe park in the Deschutes National Forest.
