I asked Waggle subscribers across Australia to share the best gear ever purchased for their pack. Ok...Now for the top 5 products as voted by YOU!


Ruffwear Front Range Harness

🚩 #1  Front Range Harness

It is no surprise winner. If anyone didn't see this coming then they've never had one. Here's what people applauded:

  • The amazing longevity was a big factor.
  • Versatility of use: stops pulling, works as walking harness, secures dogs in car
  • Super comfy

"Our best piece of equipment is our Ruffwear Front Range Harness from Waggle. It’s seen many adventures, swimming, dragged through bushes, many walking kilometres and multiple training sessions, still going strong after 3 years." Donna Griggs

"Absolutely THE best value dog gear ever? The Ruffwear Front Range Harness. In bright safety orange. Our Koolie/Kelpie Cross, Emma, adores it, and after 5 years it’s still going strong! (She’s put on weight, though, so she’s going to get a new harness very soon, but we don’t mention her weight gain to her... winter has been tough this year!)"  Caitlin O’Connor


Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots

🚩 #2 Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots

Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots stormed second place. Here's what people were most excited about:

  • Traction, stopping slipping
  • Protection against allergens
  • Protection on rough or hot surfaces
  • Dragging paws

"I guess I'd have to choose the Ruffwear boots. We needed these in the rental house we were in as the soft cypress pine floors would have been destroyed by Kiah's 'dragon' claws. It saved us having to repolish their floors when we left. They are great so she doesn't slip in the car as she likes to stand and see what's happening and also when walking in Summer to avoid the bindiis - she definitely doesn't like those - and for those hot pavement walks... Best thing is she doesn't mind them at all!"  Nerida Church

"For misty and I it would definitely be the boots. From being used on hot days to get to the water edge on hot sand. To muddy grounds on camping trips. They help keep her feet safe and our camping bed clean."  Emily Palmer, Cape Woolamai VIC


Help'em Up Harness

🚩 #3 Help'em Up Harness

The Help'em Up Harness took a close third. For dogs who require mobility support this harness rocks hard and changes lives every week.

  • Most comfy support harness
  • Easiest to fit
  • Lightest and most streamlined support harness
"The very best thing I have ever bought Millie is the Help'Em Up harness. She has hip dysplasia on the right and spinal issues on the left, hence very weak rear section. Now I can support her going up and down gutters, steps etc. And also when she is doing a poo so she doesn't collapse. Worth every cent."  - Kay Stevens

Ruffwear Web Master Harness

🚩 #4 Ruffwear Web Master Harness

The Web Master Harness definitely proved its mettle.

  • Stops Houdini escape dogs in their tracks
  • Awesome handle for lifting your dog
  • Great support harness, especially for lighter dogs

"We have a little half size Tri-Paw Cavalier who is missing her front left leg... No Vets or Pet Shops were able to help with any suitable harness, the two strap variety tend to slide off when she stepped back due to one leg and very silky hair... When I found Waggle and was offered a try and return if not suitable I purchased...We now have a little fully grown dog who is happy to run about 1Km on two legs (back left for balancing) and as she tires quickly gets carried. She can also be lifted by the handle on the back of the harness in an emergency. Someone likened it to picking up a handbag with legs. Thank you Zoe for your delightful effervescent emails, web site and service and for providing a very small pup with better mobility, the happiness shines in her eyes."  - Terry Cox

"I absolutely love the Ruffwear harness for escape artists. I bought 2 for my then Jack Russells & they were great. Loads of adjustment & a handle that my vet particularly likes😄. My 2 terriers come running when I get their harnesses out😁👍 They've been washed countless times & are just as good as the day I bought them.".  - Julie Marshall😊


Rex Specs Dog Goggles

🚩 #5 Rex Specs Dog Goggles

Rex Specs Dog Goggles decisively grabbed fifth place. I've been selling more and more of these protective goggles. Aussie dogs face the same UV potent sun we do. No surprise, many of our dogs struggle to cope with it.

  • Widest field of vision for dog goggles/sunnies
  • Snug fit and low profile straps
  • Excellent UV protection

"My rexspecs. Not only do they help me see when the sun is out they also protect my eyes from further damage."  - Lucy Canon
