Rachel Bauman, founder of Whyld River, was inspired by her rescue pup, River (and their outdoor adventures together) to create a sleeping bag for dogs that would provide the same comfort and protection from the elements as human sleeping bags. It looks like plenty of dog lovers out there share her vision, because WhyldRiver’s Kickstarter, which launched just a few days ago, has already reached its funding goal. (And if you’re someone who’s ever attempted to share a sleeping bag with a dog, you’re probably also thinking “YASSSSSS.”) Whyld River’s DoggyBag is insulated and water-resistant, providing pups warmth and protection — and it’s easily packable and machine-washable, providing humans convenience and practicality. A feature I especially like? The DoggyBag is designed to close with snaps instead of zippers, meaning no wayward tails get snagged or pulled. The DoggyBag should be available to backers starting November 2018, and for every 10 DoggyBags sold, Whyld River will donate a bag to Portland Animal Welfare Team. Visit Whyld River to find out how you can get your paws on one once the Kickstarter wraps.
