Ruffwear, the U.S. specialty brand of dog gear for outdoor purposes, has handed over its distribution in the Italian market to Accapi Group, its current distributor for the U.K. and other European countries. Accapi is based in Britain, but will be represented in Italy by Massimo Pinarelli. Accapi distributes other pet-related brands such as Planet Dog and Kurgo in Britain. Over the past two years, Ruffwear had covered Italy through Kong, the maker of climbing equipment.
