Working Dogs

Working dogs and their human partners have been part of Ruffwear’s heart and soul since we launched the first collapsible dog bowl in 1994. From mountain snowstorms to urban disaster zones, working dogs and handlers have put our gear through rigorous testing in every type of environment. Their feedback on fit, durability, and performance helped shape who we are today and where we’re going next. As part of our commitment to working dogs and handlers, we’ve launched a program to design gear specifically tailored to their needs.

Previously, our line of service dog products were only available to purchase through select service dog schools. The lack of product availability to a portion of the service dog community does not align with our core belief in supporting the critical role of working dogs in our society. Going forward, Ruffwear will offer access to our service dog products on as a means to reach those who truly depend on it. Read the full statement here.
