[BEND, OR, April 2, 2018]— Ruffwear’s Summer 2018 product line launches today with gear designed to enhance and inspire exploration for outdoor adventurers and their human companions. It features new and updated lightweight, functional gear that’s ready for wherever your journey takes you.

Much of the inspiration for Ruffwear’s summer line has been drawn from the joy we experience while trail running with our dogs. Trail running and mindfulness go hand-in-hand and being in the moment is one of the greatest lessons we can learn from our canine companions. This latest gear from Ruffwear encapsulates our Summer 2018 theme of Be in the Mile.

Be in the Mile

A rhythm that is not a rhythm, rather a pile of sounds, feelings, and movements that blend together into a state of mind that is at once wandering and utterly present. Being in the moment is one of the greatest lessons we can learn from our canine companions.

It’s these reminders of the joy found in the present that inspired our trail running collection. Gear meant to enhance your miles and inspire you to explore new trails with your canine companion, remembering all the while that whatever mile you’re in is the very best one.
