Knot-a-Hitch™

campsite dog-hitching system

Color

Selected: Red Clay

The Knot-a-Hitch™ is a campsite dog-hitching system using climbing-inspired components and hardware. Designed with car camping in mind, this comprehensive and intuitive system allows your dog to roam at camp while remaining on leash.

The Knot-a-Hitch™ includes a strong, kernmantle rope that can be set up between two trees or secured to a single post using Ruffwear-designed hardware and an easy-to-use tensioning system. Your dog can explore their new surroundings while you go about camp duties such as setting up the tent, cooking dinner, or building a fire.

Note: The Knot-a-Hitch™ should only be attached to a harness (not a collar).

What's New: We updated the shell material on the stow bag for improved durability and resistance to fading.

Dimensions: Rope Length is 28.5 ft (8.7 m); Stow Bag is 6 x 7 x 2 in (16 x 18.5 x 5 cm); 14.4 ounces

    Amazingly easy to set up, strong and secure. Can't wait to test it out at the campsite!

    Great for training and camping

    I got a previous version (no locking clip) several years ago for camping. It's worked great to give some freedom while keeping him nearby. But where it's really shined is outdoor training - I set it up in parks with a long lead to practice recall and focus around distractions, as well as get some play in without having to hold the leash. Just mount it high enough that you can walk underneath... Fantastic design, versatile and durable!
