Rhodesian Ridgeback

Eve, Kioni, Astrid (various breeds)

Anna sent us this different view of three Banzai dog packs in action. Hope her photo makes you smile as much as it did us. Anna included the following message:

I just wanted to share a photo my friend and I took recently of our girls wearing their Banzai Wolf Packs on our trip to Saluda, North Carolina. Wearing the red pack is Eve, a 10 1/2 year old Chow mix. Pretty in pink is Kioni, a 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. Posing in purple is Astrid, a 17 month old Central Asian Shepherd. Hope you like!

Kioni (Rhodesian Ridgeback)

Here is Kioni, a Rhodesian Ridgeback owned by Desiree Beauchamp-Jones. Desiree is also the owner of Rapid Response Dog Training in South Carolina. She asked us to make a special Banzai dog pack for Kioni in Hot Pink. This is a snippet from her email to us about Kioni’s new pack:

It fits perfectly. No more stopping every five minutes to readjust the load, and no more sliding off her head when going downhill! No matter what she does to it (and believe me, a one-year-old performance-bred Ridgeback does things no pack should be made to suffer through!) it stays put and keeps the load balanced. It's also not chaffing or rubbing anywhere, even across her ridge where other packs I've tried created issues. The other day she flopped out on her back and had a good roll, pack on and buckled, then jumped up and went racing across the field, with ridiculous puppy acrobatics executed at sighthound speeds. Then she pounced on her Malamute buddy, starting a wrestling match. The pack never budged. My friend with the Malamute promptly decided to order a Wolf Pack for her dog, too. (and she used it for the first time today; it worked beautifully!)

It's also holding up amazingly well... it cleans easily with a wet washcloth, and is showing no signs of wear at all so far.

Bella (Rhodesian Ridgeback)

Louise & Wayne Laub's Rhodesian Ridgeback Bella enjoys her first experience in snow in the spectacular Yosemite region. Here she is relaxing while wearing her orange Banzai dog pack. Louise sent us these Comment about Bella's pack:

Linda and Paul:

We wanted to send you a photo from our road trip, and say thank you for making such a great product! Our Ridgeback, Bella, enjoyed going on hikes with us and we enjoyed being able to bring her with us. At first, she was reluctant to wear the pack (we nicknamed her 'Miss Mule'), but once we started on the trails, she got used to it quickly, and we all had a great time.

Thanks again,

Louise, Wayne and Bella
