Occasionally we get the question, “Why doesn’t Ruffwear make a sleeping bag for dogs?” It’s a great question! Our experience with dogs and their sleeping habits is that they’re often on the move. They tend to move around throughout the night, so a traditional zip-up sleeping bag, while warm, would impede on this ability to move around, let alone head outside for a midnight relief break.
At only 14 ounces, the Highlands Bed is ideal for multi-day backpacking trips. The synthetic Thermore™ insulation keeps your dog warm and retains its insulating properties even when wet. For colder nights, just add the Quinzee Jacket – which wraps your dog in the same 50% recycled Thermore insulation retaining core body heat.
If the temperatures are cool but not quite freezing, you might consider using the Climate Changer™ Jacket as a great sleeping option. With a full-length side zipper, there are no buckles that may be uncomfortable to lay on.
