Holiday Like The Pros: Ambassador Picks

  • Cristina Stavro

Ruffwear Ambassadors share our belief that dogs make us whole and our relationship with our dogs is shaped by the adventures we share. So who better to turn to for some holiday inspiration than our very own Ambassador Pack?

Read on for their top gear picks (both human and canine) and other ways they make the holidays with their canine companions an extra special time of year.

The Pack: Maria, Bodie, Willow & Riley

The Picks: The holidays usually mean traveling for us, so I love the Haul Bag™. All three dogs wear the Front Range® Harness.

Favorite Gift to Give: The Gnawt-a-Cone™! You can never have too many toys that bounce in crazy directions and double as a puzzle toy we can stuff with food.

Favorite Way to Unwind During the Holidays: Fires in the fireplace, and 3 dogs snuggled up together on their beds.

The Pack: Alli, Kona, Cali & Ruger

Favorite Holiday Treat: Egg nog anything for the humans, snowballs for the pups.

The Pack: Bronwyn & Arnie

The Picks: Since I have the world's coldest hands, I don't go anywhere without my Auclair Gigatex mittens. So toasty! Arnie likes to be a 'hound about town' in his Powder Hound™ Jacket... it's so fetch!

Favorite Gift to Give: The Front Range® Harness and the Flat Out™ Leash are two of my favorite gifts to give for four-legged friends and family

Favorite Holiday Treat: For Arnie, being allowed to sleep on the bed (under the covers, of course). For me, baking pie, then eating it for breakfast before skiing.

Favorite Winter Activity: Skijoring is our favorite activity to do together in the snow. Canmore is home to many skilled Nordic skiers, and with Arnie's help, I can almost keep up with my friends!
