ON SALE - All WolfPack Backpacks (sale prices shown)
Dog Backpacks for casual walks or multi-day treks. Packs vary widely in quality, design and durability so we have limited the selection to the best of the pack. Our packs are made by Ruffwear and EzyDog, experts in outdoor performance equipment and WolfPacks which are made in the USA.
Cheaper dog packs are available but not by Animal Grace. Ours are built to withstand their intended applications and to last for years. These backpacks are designed with the heath and comfort of the dog in mind. Lesser packs with poor design can place unsafe pressure on a dog's back unlike ours which disperse the load ergonomically using a dog's shoulder area as the load-bearing section.
Specialty features of our dog packs include:
- Large dog backpacks with girth measurements up to 55”
- Packs with removable saddlebags that can detach from a multi-purpose foundation harness
- Large cargo and multiple pockets
- Designed for the canine anatomy
- Quick-release mechanisms
- Water and rip resistant fabrics

Cooling vest for heat relief – Swamp Cooler (Ruffwear)
Many people assume a dog's paws are tough enough to withstand most any surface. However, the truth is that, like us, the canine body acclimates to its day-to-day environment. So, if a dog generally lives indoors with daily walks on smooth sidewalks and you take him on a 9-mile hike on a rough trail, paw damage may occur. We’ve heard many stories of dogs needing to be carried back down the trail due to paw injuries. If this happens on vacation or in a remote area, you have a problem on your hands. Paw protection can save a trip from disaster. The Ruffwear Grip Trex Dog Boots are an all-terrain boot with a tough Vibram sole suitable for on or off-trail.
For an excellent winter snow boot, try the Polar Trex.
Urban travel can be problamatic as well with extremely summer streets and winter streets covered with salt or chemicals that can cause injury to a paw. The solution is the Summit Trex boot which is lighter weight and more flexible than the Grip Trex. The Summit Trex works great on boats too.
Floatation devices or life vests are increasing in popularity as boaters realize the importance of dog floatation devices (PFD) for the safety of a dog.
We stock dog life preservers from D-fa, Ruffwear and EzyDog. We believe these are the best dog life vests based on the quality workmanship and strength, especially in the handle. Should the dog need to be rescued you don’t want a cheap life vest that may fail when you need it most.
Small dog life jackets are made to fit dogs with as small as the 8” girth of the Micro-Doggy (EzyDog) or the 13” on the Float Coat (Ruffwear)
For a large dog float we have the 42” Ruffwear or all the way to the 48” EzyDog
