Product Description


This dog pack was designed to be an everyday pack with excellent performance, fit and functionality. Comfort-fit Web Master Harness frame ensures good structure, stability, and load dispersion.  When it comes to quality and innovation, there is no other company that makes a pack like Ruff Wear's Approach Pack.

To start with, the five-point adjustable fit accommodates dogs of all shapes and sizes. This dog pack is so versatile, it is rated for one-hour to three-day hikes. Use to offset your load or for training and exercise.  The integrated loops are great to lace a sleeping bag or bed roll to.

The Approach Pack gives your dog a load to carry and a job to do, generating instant four-legged motivation.

  • Customizable fit with five points of adjustment allow for full range of motion
  • Two leash attachment points: single-piece, anodized aluminum V-ring and web loop
  • Padded handle and non-slip girth straps offer good load dispersion for controlled and comfortable lifting
  • Trail-ready details: stash pockets and external gear loops
  • Radial cut, weight-forward saddlebag design creates passive compression that stabilizes pack contents 
  • Harness suspension system provides stability, comfort and fit
  • Secure Fasteners
  • Hand Wash
  • Mild Detergent
  • Hang Dry
Important Note: If ordering this pack with a Patch for your working dog or service dog, please allow an additional 3-4 business days for processing. Additionally, with Ruff Wear's new design, there is only enough room for one (1) patch to be sewn on. If you order additional patches, those will not be able to be sewn on and will be sent unattached so you may affix at your discretion.

The pack’s harness should have an all-around snug fit for a stable load and to prevent movement or shifting of the saddlebags. Be sure that each saddlebag has an equal and balanced load.

Make sure to take a few minutes to check out all of the other great Ruff Wear products Petjoy offers in addition to the Approach Pack.

  • Better than expected

    by Vickie Decker

    I hate buying online because the products are never what is shown. In this case the product is durable, great color, and embroidery was excellent. I highly recommend Petjoy products

    Great harness!! Holds a lot of items - she seems to enjoy wearing it - most importantly was the profound customer service at Petjoy - I can't stress enough how prompt, respectful, helpful, excellent service - I WILL order from them again - Billy

  • Outstanding!

    by Unknown

    I love the pack. Nothing wrong with it. They did not put the patch on the side I asked for, and that is my only problem.

  • Love their packs

    works well but I'm still having probs fine tuning the fit.

  • Great Fit

    by Jody Pearson

    We have a 70 lb chocolate lab and the pack is perfect for her. At first a little confusing on how to put it on, but no problems now.

  • Great Pack!

    by M. Lambert

    I looked at quite a few packs for my service dog and the Ruff Wear ones were the highest quality. My ordering experience was fantastic too. I got the pack quickly and Petjoy's price can't be beat.

  • Approach Pack

    by Alia & Yogi

    This pack is amazingly well thought out and DEFINATELY very well made. I bought the XS for my 18 lb cairn terrier (who needed a purpose) & it fits her perfectly. She actually seems to love wearing it & wears it proudly and comfortably. I am very happy with the results. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • Great quality/stays secure

    by Doug

    I researched several packs for my 70 Doberman before purchasing this one. The pack is very well made, very durable and great for day trips. It has nice features such as the d-ring and water-proof zippers. It took just a few minutes to size the pack to my dog. The pack stays put even when he's running wide open through the woods or across streams. I purchased the medium and we have plenty of room to grow. I would purchase again!
