Performance dog gear brand launches versatile and technology-driven collections made for play

BEND, OR (August 17, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Ruffwear, the leading manufacturer of performance dog gear built to inspire dog and human connections outdoors, is excited to launch two new collections for the Fall and Winter 2022/2023 season. Launching August 17, the Trailhead collection offers versatile gear that can flex across a variety of lifestyles and activities so humans and dogs can find common ground to play and explore more together. Launching October 12, the Innovative Insulation collection features jackets that will enhance winter outdoor adventures with intentional design and technical insulation for the coldest weather. The collections will be available for purchase online at ruffwear.com and select retailers across the country.

“This Fall/Winter season, we’re focused on the joyful connections that can come from playing outdoors with our dogs,” says Ruffwear Director of Marketing, Susan Strible. “Our pack put an emphasis on innovation, insulation, and versatility when creating these gear collections – including Ruffwear’s first dog jacket featuring natural fibers. We are excited to launch our fall and winter collections, both providing endless opportunities for play throughout the season.”

For Fall 2022, Ruffwear is taking a cue from our dogs and pressing play this season. Time to let go, let loose, and zoom outside the lines – to follow the scent of spontaneous curiosity and delight in the bliss that is playfulness unleashed. Play is fundamental to our relationship with our dogs, our world, and ourselves. It’s a form of exploration, and through it, we can discover new ways to communicate, connect, and create.

Versatility is key when taking that next step into a wider world of exploration. When gear functions for everyday needs but also flexes across various activities, humans and their dogs can start where they’re at and follow their noses to discover new paths and new ways to play together.
