Ruffwear has been a proud sponsor and supporter of a majority of the avalanche rescue dog teams across the US and Canada for many years. Over the years, we have sent these working dogs Ruffwear gear, let them put the equivalent of multiple years of use and abuse on the products in a single season, and then asked them for feedback. One thing we cherish about working with these groups is that they are very open and honest with their feedback and needs. When working in the conditions they operate in, they need good gear and that gear must be designed to work.
Over the past two winter seasons, we have been working very closely with select avalanche rescue dog handlers to develop a harness to the specs that they require. After two years of prototypes, field-testing, feedback and adjustments, we are proud to introduce the Web Master Pro™ Harness – a lift and assist harness designed to address the needs of professional avalanche and SAR teams.
The Web Master Pro is built on the safe, secure and proven chassis of our Web Master™ Harness – which means you get the same customizable fit thanks to five points of adjustment, that allow for full range of active motion.
What sets this apart from the Web Master is all-metal hardware, an oversized handle for gloved hands, and two low-profile side pockets that carry essentials like an avalanche beacon, identification papers and treats.
Other features include:
- Two points of leash attachment: single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring centered on dog, and a webbing loop at the rear
- Highly visible red color provides a professional presentation for working dogs
- Low-light visibility with reflective trim
This winter, keep an eye out for Web Master Pro hard at work at your local ski resort. To read more about the work Ruffwear does with the avalanche rescue teams, check out our website page devoted to these awesome dog and handler teams.
