I worked at a large outdoor retailer for years and have always been a gear junkie. I know a quality made product when I see it. I can also tell if something is just made to look like “outdoor adventure gear” for dogs or if it’s actually going to work and hold up to repeated use.
As a pet blogger, I’ve seen a lot of stuff made for pets. There are a few brands that really stand out to me. Their products are made to the high-quality standards I’m used to seeing in people gear and it seems like a lot of thought was put into them. One of those brands is Kurgo.
I had actually never owned anything by Kurgo – I’ve just been admiring it for years. Well, I finally got a Loft Hammock to protect the back seat of my car and I love it!
It looks sharp (that’s important you know). It’s waterproof to help protect my seats from wet hiking gear and muddy paws. I can just throw it in the washer when it gets dirty. I can use it as a hammock to create a little storage compartment on the floor that the dogs can’t get to (I can’t put food or treats there though. I am pretty sure they would eat through a brick wall to get to those 🙂 or remove the front attachments to create a car seat cover that will protect my seats from our wet, muddy people friends.
It also doubles as a ground cloth at an outdoor concert or a blanket when it starts to get chilly.
I have my eye on the Quantum Leash because I can’t let Chester or Gretel off leash but I want to try hiking hands-free. I would like to try the Surf N Turf Life Jacket for paddleboarding next spring because it looks like it will fit a Dachshund well but offers more flotation than the ones we currently have. They also have crash-tested dog safety harnesses for the car (only a few out there are actually crash tested), dog jackets, a dog first aid kit, and much more!
I’m definitely looking forward to trying more of their stuff.
