Great piece of gear for my best friend!
I purchased a medium sized sleeping bag for my favorite trail buddy, a 55lb border collie. He's a hardened trail dog but gives very sad eyes when cold at night. I had been using a fleece blanket for years that I'd sewn velcro along the edges. The velcro would get stuck in his fur and typically did not hold. When temperatures dropped below freezing he'd shiver through the night. The design description of this bag caught my attention and having been coerced into sharing my sleeping bag with a wet, cold, too large dog on the coldest of nights in the past, I decided this purchase might easy my guilt in not wanting to repeat that experience. We just got back from a five-day backpacking trip in early spring where we encountered snow on the ground, followed by rain and mud, and windy/frosty mornings. This bag was a game-changer for his comfort during the trip. I snapped him in at bedtime which was quick and easy and when I put my hand inside the bag to check on his temperature several times throughout the night he remained toasty warm at temperatures that dipped to the mid 20's Fahrenheit. Even on the days he was wet from walking in mud and snow the bag did a great job to seal in his body heat. We slept outside on top of a tarp exposed to damp air, wind, and frost. I was impressed at how functional the overlapping top/bottom layer was at keeping out the wind, even with the snap verses zipper feature. The snaps held well as he shifted throughout the night. The synthetic material worked great even when damp and was still compressible enough to fit into a slightly larger stuff sack with my sleeping bag and puffy jacket. I'm glad to have this piece of gear for my dog friend.
Hi Finley, Wow, thank you so much for sharing your story and for your kind words about our product! I am so happy that your DoggyBag kept your BFF warm on your trip!!

Happy we could do our part to help you both enjoy the outdoors together and thank you so much for your review! ❤️ Warmest regards, Rachel at Whyld River
The Doggy Bag!
We camp alot here in Colorado, and at elevation the nighttime temps drop pretty quickly. Ruger Dog typically finds his way into my Bag at night with me but now he has his own super comfy and warm Bag! We can’t wait to hike in and camp this summer! Every dog lover needs one.
Hi Timothy, Thank you so much for your review! I can't wait to hear what you and Ruger think when you get to use it this summer. Thank you for supporting Whyld River! Warmest regards, Rachel at Whyld River
Awesome Travel Bed!
I received my DoggyBag yesterday and am so excited for my dog to use it! I researched dog travel beds and dog sleeping bags and chose the DoggyBag because of its shape and materials. The quality of the DoggyBag is top notch and I can't wait to use it on our adventures. I purchased a medium DoggyBag for my 30lb dog and it's a perfect size. I had my DoggyBag shipped to Canada with USPS and it arrived in about 2 weeks with no extra duties or taxes.
Hi Hayley, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are so excited to see all of you and your pups adventures with your DoggyBag. Thank you for supporting Whyld River! Warmest regards, Rachel at Whyld River
The best doggy bag ever
I have not actually used the beds yet. Rachel was kind enough to donate a few beds for our signature fundraising event for Glacier Park, the Backpacker's Ball which will be held July 31st. The quality of the beds and the packaging are top notch. Any dog would be jumping for joy and snoozing comfortably in these super well designed bags. Thanks Whyld River
Hi Linda, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy to be able to be a part of helping with conservation efforts at Glacier National Park. Thank you for including us! Warmest regards, Rachel at Whyld River
