Pets make some of the best outdoor adventure partners: they’ll keep you motivated, will get excited about all your ideas, and make great listeners all the while down the trail.

But for all the gear that you gather for yourself, it can be hard to prep your pup in the same way for a safe and comfortable trip into the wild. These new products will help you outfit your dog for the great outdoors so that no bark gets left behind.

Plus, the attached bottle opener can really come in handy when playtime winds down around the fire. www.kurgostore.com
