Who is DOGPAK?
We are a family-owned outdoor K9 gear and content company inspired by the nostalgia of my own personal travels around the globe with my pup Thunder. After 12 years, 46 States, 30 countries, and 2 transcontinental motorcycle rallies with old Thunder, I realized that my most endearing memories with my pup came from those unforgettable adventures we shared together—the kinds of journeys that don't always seem fun in the moment but have a tendency to shine in retrospect as we regale our friends over a campfire with stories that combine suspense and laughter, snorts and tears in equal parts—the kinds of memories built from a questionable unfolding of comedy and mishap, moonlit nights and misty mornings, missed switchbacks and rain soaked shoes, tall tales that grow in zeal and zest with each passing year and each retelling over a campfire on a mountain side somewhere beneath the stars. We are purveyors of type II fun and full-belly laughs on empty stomachs after long days and many miles. DOGPAK was inspired by the same kinds of adventures we hope to inspire in you. Our mission is to help other people develop the same kind of bond with their pups by making it easier to get outdoors together. We are excited to be presenting our first product: the Moab Lite daypack! Be sure to subscribe to stay updated and to receive some helpful content about adventuring with our dogs!
