BOOT MEASUREMENT GUIDE

• Below is a super easy way to find the correct boot size for your pup.

1. Make sure your pup is standing on a firm surface.

2. Instead of fighting with measuring tape, grab a pencil and place a piece of paper under one of your dog's front paws.

3. Then, lift your dog's opposite paw so that its weight is placed firmly onto the front paw being measured.

4. Take your pencil and mark both sides of the weighted paw at its widest point on the piece of paper.

5. Kiss Fido on the head for being so great, and let him (or her) go play. From there, grab your measuring tape and measure the distance between the two points. Check which boot size would fit above, and you're all set. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

RUFFWEAR MEASUREMENT GUIDE

• The fit info listed below is meant to help find the correct fit, especially if your pup has a unique size or shape.

FIT INFO:

Length - Refers to the length of the coat from the center back neck to the center of your pup's lower back.

Neck - The neck refers to the neck opening circumference.

Dog's Girth - To measure girth, measure around the widest part of Fido's rib cage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best quality in the biz Ruffwear stays true to it's rep as the highest quality of dog care! Pack is tidy and neat (no hanging straps). Wears well, very spacious. As a note, and not anything necessarily good or bad, the saddlebags are bulky/protruding, so on one hand they are spacious, but on the other hand they will scrape across brush on a narrow path.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for your best friend I bought this pack after careful research to find a pack that would be both efficient and comfortable for my dog. We tested the pack with a climb to 1500 feet. The pack rode very well when balanced properly. There appeared to be no discomfort for dog and no signs of chaffing were observed. I would also add that the handle on top is very handy for lifting dog over those rock faces that were difficult for him to handle. This was the first time he had ever wore a pack and he carried it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop reading reviews and buy this pack! This is an excellent pack for any canine companion. My favorite hiking partner is a hundred pound eight year old puppy. And he really does act like a puppy... until he puts on his pack. When he wears this, he knows he has a job and responsibility and he is 100% serious. He stands up a little taller and looks very proud of himself. You can tell all the other dogs on the trail are jealous.,,It fits well and seems comfortable, and the material is surprisingly durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack. Dog loves it. I cant even tell you how many times i have been stopped an asked where i got the pack. It fits great and holds more than enough stuff for my 100lbs golden retriever for a weekend camping trip. I no longer carry his food and supplies. He feels part of the team and loves wearing it. Do yourself a favor and have you dog carry some of the load on your next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog pack! I bought this Ruffwear pack for my 80 lbs Belgium Malinois (Heidi). The sizing guide was accurate and the medium was a perfect fit based on her chest measurement. The padded adjustable straps make it easy to get a custom fit for your dog. This is an important consideration, as your dog will not likely enjoy wearing a poorly designed ill fitting pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruff to say the least This pack is not much of an improvement on the older model which sizes can fit a wider range of sizes within one size. Which is great with a growing dog instead of having to buy multiple packs. My dog often gets rubbed raw especially if she gets it wet. Being a German Shorthair she doesn't have a lot of hair to guard herself from chaffing. This does hold quiet a bit two water bottles for her and several days worth of dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves her backpack! I've been wanting to get my dog into backpacking, so after some research, I bought this Ruffwear Approach pack. SHE LOVES IT! We're still working on weighting it, because she's building her strength for carrying weight, but she literally just gets instantly "at work" when I put it on. It's so well made and looks fantastic. Buy this backpack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dog Pack for the Money We got the Approach pack for my 86 lb Black Lab (strangely not overweight) and have used it on three trips so far. It's awesome, especially when compared to the junky one we bought from the pet store a few years ago. ,,,,The capacity is great. It can hold 4 days of dry food (16 cups), 2 liters of water, a couple milkbones, collapsable bowl, and 2 tennis balls. Even with all of that, there was extra room. The Approach pack sits well when full, too; it's not too bulky.,,,,The fabric is very tear resistant. My dog has scraped it against branches, tree trunks, rocks and thorns and it is still free from any tearing. It's also easy to wash, so after she rolls around in the dirt with it, we can chuck it in the washer when we get home and it's good as new.,,,,The fit is awesome. The last pack we had for her shifted constantly. The Approach pack works great. We balance the weight some, and the pack doesn't shift at all. It's a great pack, and we'll be getting another for our new puppy!

What size pack for a 60 lb Labrador 1 year old whom we expect to be 80 lb at full size?

Asked by: Doodle
Hey Dair, Ruffwear sizes their items not by the weight of your dog, but by the measurements of the back length and neck or girth, depending on the item. You can check out Ruffwear's size guide here: http://www.ruffwear.com/Apparel. You can then use that guide to find the best size for your dog for this item.
