The Best Places to Sit, Stay + Play with Your Pooch

Partner Spotlight: Rumpl

According to the folks at Rumpl, they were put on this planet to introduce the world to a better blanket. According to CityDog Magazine, they succeeded.


It started in the back of a van…

On a surf and ski trip through California, the founders of Rumpl were sleeping in a van, several miles up a dirt road near a secret hot spring. They awoke the next morning in subzero temperatures with a car that wouldn’t start. Far outside of cell reception, and confronted with an impossibly long walk into town, they decided to bundle up in their sleeping bags and drink whiskey while they waited for someone else to show up.

Minutes turned to hours, and in that time the conversation took an unexpected turn to the subject of bedding. Cozy and warm in their sleeping bags, the two acknowledged how much better the materials felt and performed than what was on their beds back home. A resolve was made to create a “sleeping bag blanket” and the idea for the first Rumpl product was born.

Now headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Rumpl has grown from a single home made ‘sleeping bag blanket’ to a whole line of blankets perfect for travel and dog lovers alike.

What we love most about their puffy blanket is its portability. Each blanket comes with a stuff sack that easily attaches to your travel gear. What Thya (pictured here with her puffy blanket) loves most is its warmth! And, what Mother Nature loves most is it’s made with 100% post-consumer recycled materials.

Most recently, they’ve added a dog bed to their repertoire.

Highly portable, durable, and cozy, the Loki Travel Dog Bed was built for travel, outdoor adventures, and life on the go. The bed and mattress pack into individual stuff sacks so you’re ready for anything.
