We believe that dogs make life better
That's why we've created The DoggyBag, so that you can take your pup on all of life's adventures with you.
The DoggyBag is a durable, water-resistant and insulated sleep system for your dog. It's modular design allows it to be used as a sleeping bag, travel bed, or blanket, so that your canine best friend gets the best night's sleep no matter where your next adventure takes you.
The DoggyBag is built with the highest quality lightweight materials just like in a human sleeping bag, but with enhanced durability to last for a lifetime with even the most rambunctious pup.
Whether you're going camping, taking a cross-country road trip, or just looking for a packable lightweight bed to take from home to office, the DoggyBag gives you the most options with the least amount of bulk, weight, or stress.
The DoggyBag was invented by Whyld River's founder Rachel Bauman, after her rescue pup River got dangerously cold on a backpacking trip to Mt. Hood. Inspired by the backpacking gear she loved and not finding anything that was up to her standards for her canine bff, Rachel decided to invent River the best sleeping bag she could dream up - and the DoggyBag was born!
We are on Kickstarter in order to fund our first production order for the DoggyBag.
Our vision is to change the pet industry and make it more collaborative. We think that the Kickstarter community will help us to reach this goal by fostering more communication and connection from the very beginning. We are excited to become a part of this amazing community and thank you for your support!
Our DoggyBag's premium blown synthetic insulation has the warmth of down without the worry! It has the same warmth-to-weight ratio as 600 fill-power down, but unlike down it will still keep your pup warm even when wet and you can easily toss it in the washing machine when you get home.
You can find out more about the insulation we use here (Just look under "Down Feel Series").
Our insulation offers maximum cushioning with the least weight and bulk. Our included draft sleeve doubles as a bolster when using the DoggyBag as a bed to make your pup feel cozy and secure.
Wa also use snaps to secure our DoggyBag instead of a zipper to give your pup a feeling of comfortable security while never feeling constrained nor unsafe.
The DoggyBag has been made with two separate pieces in order to provide the best night's sleep for your pup and the most versatile range of uses.
With a synthetic insulation comparable to 600 fill-power down, the DoggyBag compresses easily into it's included stuff sack so it's ready for any adventure!
(Stuff sack sizing: small 6.5" x 11", medium 7" x 12", large 7.5" x 14")
We chose nylon as it offers more durability at a lighter weight than polyester. Our 40-denier ripstop nylon shell has been treated with DWR for extra water-resistance and to make spot-cleaning easier.
All of the materials on our DoggyBag are washing machine friendly. Simply toss in your washing machine and dry on low or hang to dry using the snaps!
A draft sleeve along the inside of the sleeping bag keeps your pup toasty warm by preventing cold drafts no matter how hard the wind blows.
The draft sleeve also doubles as a comfy bolster when the DoggyBag is being used as a travel bed:
We placed an additional snap in the middle of the quilt in case your dog prefers to have their head uncovered for even more comfort and versatility.
Our Color Palette:
Our signature "Pacific" blue color that we are using for your DoggyBag was inspired by the iconic Pacific Crest Trail.
All of our logos are printed in reflective ink to make it easy to find and snap your DoggyBag together in the dark by flashlight or headlamp
Integrated Pad Sleeve:
The DoggyBag has an integrated pad sleeve to protect from ground chill with the addition of any human sleeping pad up to 20" wide and 1" thick (not included, we recommend Therm-a-Rest's Z Sol Lite)
The DoggyBag also comes with it's own matching stuff sack. The stuff sack has two reflective logos (one on the side and one on the handle) so you can always find it easily.
Every detail of our DoggyBag was designed with your pup's ultimate comfort and safety in mind, ensuring that your pup stays safe and warm no matter where your next adventure takes you!
We offer our DoggyBag in 3 sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. You will find our size chart below the following measurement guide. Make sure you measure your pup for the activity you plan on doing most.
After measuring use the size chart below to find your pup’s correct size for their DoggyBag:
For every ten DoggyBags we sell one will be donated to a pup in need.
For our DoggyBag donation we have partnered with a local non-profit: Portland Animal Welfare Team (or PAW Team for short). PAW Team provides free veterinary care, medicine, food, and other necessary supplies for the pets of people who are experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty.
We also offer the option for you to donate a DoggyBag to a non-profit of your choosing. This is a great way for you to support our startup and a pup in need even if you aren't in need of a DoggyBag at the moment!
Our work to make sure that pups find happy homes is engrained into Whyld River's mission: "to ensure all dogs are safe, healthy, and loved." No matter where things may go in the future with Whyld River we want to make sure that this mission remains at the core of everything we do.

Customs and Duties
Whyld River cannot mark orders as gifts.
Our prices DO NOT include VAT, GST or other country taxes.
Our terms of sale for international orders are FOB destination. This means that you pay all freight and duties or taxes.
We found this handy tool, that can assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the U.S. dollars to your local currency: https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/
For international customers who are required to pay customs, you will receive an email from your local customs authorities asking for payment to have your order processed through customs. Unfortunately, there is no legal way around customs. Once you make that payment to the customs broker your order will be processed for final delivery.
If our shipping carrier attempts delivery to you and you don't get it because you’re not there, wrong address, moved without notifying us, and the package returns back to our warehouse, it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay the shipping fee to reship the order. When you receive your tracking number, please keep an eye out for the package.
Risks and challenges
There are always some challenges in getting product from ideation to being delivered to your doorstep. However, we are already in the process of having our first order produced and we are taking every precaution to ensure that we stick with our timeline and meet (or hopefully exceed) our backers expectations. We will be in full communication with all of our backers and we will share any unexpected risks or obstacles that may arise. We will work hard to make sure that we will deliver on our promise to you.
