Whyld River’s sleeping bag was born on a cold night in a tent resting in the shadow of Mt. Hood. River the rescue pup had escaped from his human sleeping bag for the hundredth time that night and was shivering in a corner making the whole tent shake. Each time throughout the night his humom had simply settled him back into the bag, hoping that he would sleep.
This time though, she looked worried. Although her mummy bag wouldn't fit them both, she wrapped it around him and held him close. Slowly as his shivering subsided and dawn began creeping up she told him a story about the amazing sleeping bag she'd build for him.
This sleeping bag, she said, would be special. Gone would be the scary cold thing she called a zipper, it would be round to fit him perfectly as he curled inside snug and warm, and he would sleep safe and warm until morning, whether he was by her side or in the spot he usually liked to claim near her feet.
On their next backpacking trip she pulled the legendary sleeping bag from a pack he had been carrying on his back. He curled up inside and immediately fell asleep. RI’ve awoke to the sun shining and squirrels chattering at him to come and chase them. Humom smiled as he raced after the chattering squirrels into the dawn of a new day.
This epic sleeping bag that warmed River's adventures and kept him safe is now available for your adventure pup! Thanks to our successful Kickstarter we were able to bring this sleeping bag to life for dogs everywhere.

The Portland Animal Welfare Team (or "PAW Team" for short) does important work by offering free veterinary care, medicine, supplies, and food to the pets of people who are experiencing extreme poverty or homelessness.
A part of each dollar you spend with Whyld River will go toward helping PAW Team to offer these services. So far we have donated over $1,500 to PAW Team and three DoggyBags, which brought in even more money at auction. As we grow we will continue to be offer more aid to dogs in need, thanks to your support.

Do you ship internationally?
We do ship internationally, but please use caution.
Our prices at checkout will include international shipping for the country indicated, but DO NOT include VAT, GST or other country taxes. One thing we have heard from our customers (especially in Canada) is that you may encounter high value-added taxes as our DoggyBag is made in XinHui, China. Please see our International Shipping page for more information.
(We will be working to make this process easier in the future as we highly value our international customers. Please feel free to contact us directly with any questions or concerns.)
