PNW Purple: A Road Trip through the Pacific Northwest

The PNW leash design is not new to Rocky Mountain Dog but we love the design so much that we decided to give it a new and very requested colour, Purple! The design is inspired by taking a road trip through the Pacific Northwest's stunning landscape.

As road trips are now more popular than ever,  here are some tips on where to stop on your next adventure with your pup and take our new PNW purple leash and collar collection with you.
