Flowfold Trail Mate Dog Leash
Know someone who needs a strong, trustworthy leash for their dog? It doesn’t get any better than this. Flowfold is collaborating with world-renowned Sterling Rope to handcraft dog leashes from reclaimed climbing rope. For more than 20 years, climbers and mountaineers have trusted Sterling to reach the peak. That legacy now extends to leads for canine companions on the trail. While this rope is set aside, it’s perfectly suitable to keep Pup safely in reach. Length is 6 feet. Color options available.
COAST FL11 Headlamp
Every camper … every person who spends time outdoors … needs a headlamp. Especially people who need to take the dog outside “…just one more time before bed.” However, they don’t necessarily need a ton of features. The COAST FL11 Headlamp is a basic hands-free way to light the way around the campground or under the sink at home while making repairs. High beam output is 130 lumens and low is 40 lumens. Powered by two AAA batteries, run time on high is 4.5 hours. Also includes a red LED light option to prevent night blindness.
REI Gift Cards
Gift cards are great gifts for pet owners because they are the only ones who know exactly what their pets need … or want … at holiday time. REI Co-op stores and on-line catalogs are stuffed with stuff camping pet owners want and use. You may also need gifts for a group of employees or club members on your list … folks you may not know that well, but to whom you want to reveal your passion for camping and the outdoors? For situations like that … and a whole lot more … there’s no better gift than the REI Gift Card. No worries about sizes or color preferences; recipients will know you thought enough to give an “outdoorsy” gift and let them make the perfect choice of what they need … or want … most this holiday season. It couldn’t be simpler … or more fun!
Mountainsmith K-9 Dog Pack
If you’re the type of person that doesn’t hit the trail without your four-legged friend, the Mountainsmith K-9 Dog Pack is built for you. With enough room for food, water, booties and other trail necessities — this pack was built from the ground up to fit your dog “dogonomically” — with comfortable fit that reduces chafing and can be worn all day. It’s your companion’s perfect companion on the trail.
Trackr Bravo Gen3 (4-Pack)
Pet owners have lots of “stuff” for their pets … stuff that can easily and often go missing. That goes for keys, phones, purses or wallets, too. The TrackR Bravo will help them keep their valuables in order.
Using a wireless signal, the anodized aluminum TrackR pairs with their smartphone and pinpoints where the lost item was left. In addition, pushing the button on the TrackR Bravo will reveal the location of a forgotten phone. Never tear the house (or tent) apart again even if your pet has a special hiding place!
E-Z Up Camping Cube Tent
Car camping pet owners in particular like big tents. If you have the cargo space, why not bring a tent you and your pets can sprawl out in, right? At 10ft x 10ft, the E-Z Up Camping Cube Tent provides all the space you need to unwind in style. The 6’ 4” ceiling and cube shape means no space is wasted. What we like most about the E-Z Up Camping Cube are the ways it accommodates gear on the inside. 25 attachment points allow you to hang gear in nets, and three storage pouches hold gear on the walls. There’s even a special pet entrance as the photo image reveals.
Campfire Defender Pro Camper
Campfires bring people together in a way nothing else can. And while we all enjoy them, if treated carelessly they can become destructive … and dangerous to pets at the campsite. The Campfire Defender Pro Camper makes it easy to enjoy a fire and then safely save your coals for the morning without your dog “learning the hard way.” It can also be used to preserve a nice bed of coals if it starts raining. The material is safe of heat of up to 2500 degrees, and a campfire is around 1700 degrees, so it’s completely safe. It’s designed to last a minimum of 100 fires, which will provide peace of mind of for many years.
