The dog sleeping bag that mates with your sleeping bag!

$12,159

153

The BarkerBag is an insulated sleeping bag that zips to the side of your standard sleeping bag. With zippers on both sides, it can attach to a single sleeping bag, regardless of which side of it zips, or it can attach between two sleeping bags that already mate together. 

It also features a cinchable collar to keep your little buddy secure inside, keeping them from running around in the night.

Last August, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded me patent number 8499382 for the Companion Sleeping Bag.  Since then, I've been refining the patterning and working with suppliers and manufacturers, and now it's ready.

We have a great factory sample, and the vendors are lined up to get this moving quickly. All we need is your help! At the end of this campaign, we will order the materials and prepare the factory for production. We should be shipping in July!

Rewards!

By popular demand we created a two-dog BarkerBag! It's two small-sized models attached end to end:

We are printing BarkerBag t-shirts right here in Seattle on U.S. made shirts. Here's the design:

 Custom pet tags hand-stamped by the designer of BarkerBag!

Risks and challenges

Taking softgoods projects like this through the process of conceptualization, design, and production is my core competency professionally, and the BarkerBag is already through the first two stages. Challenges inevitably arise in the production phase, but I am confident in my proficiencies, as well as the capabilities and professionalism of the vendors I work with. The BarkerBag, BarkerBed, leashes, and t-shirts will all be made locally in Seattle, Washington, and it is the perfect place to produce all these things.

    BarkerBed! Sustainability is one of our core values, so we had to figure out something to do with the insulation scraps from manufacturing. What better to do than shred them up and stuff them into a comfy bed for naps at home or in the car!
