We’re all spending a little more time at home these days. So if you’re looking for some inspiration until you can get out there again, these adventurous dogs on Instagram have got you covered.  Spend a few minutes scrolling through these accounts to get inspired for your next adventure with your own pup!



Trails and Bears (@trailsandbears)


Rachael Rodgers is a portrait photographer that captures the best side of adoptable dogs.  She takes adoptable dogs up into the mountains of Canada for a day of adventure and shoots amazing photographs of them along the way.  You’ll laugh, you may cry, but you’re sure to be inspired by all the amazing adoptable dogs and their stories. 


Brianna Madia (@briannamadia


While not technically a “dogs only” Instagram account, Brianna shows fierce love on her account for the three dogs her and her husband adventure with out of their van.  Her dogs Dagwood, Birdie and Bucket go climbing, swimming and even canyoneering with their humans out in the desert.  Brianna’s account will definitely make you re-think what’s possible when living with dogs in a refreshingly honest style. 


Kicker Dog (@kickerdogmuse)


This four-year old golden retriever’s antics are sure to make you smile and, yes, multiple costume changes are involved. From mountain climbing to speed flying to surfing, this pup seems to do it all.  Oh, and naps.  Lots of naps. 



Theron Humphrey (@thiswildidea)


You’re more likely to see pictures of Theron Humphrey’s dog Maddie blissing out in hot springs or lounging in a canoe than surfing or racing up a mountain.  But make no mistake, Maddie is a serious adventure dog that goes with her photographer dad everywhere.  Theron’s account features hilarious portraits of Maddie accompanying him in all kinds of backcountry, and heavily features her unique talent for balancing acts.


Henry + Baloo (@henrythecoloradodog)


Yes, this account features a cat.  But it’s hard not to love the outdoor antics of Henry the dog and Baloo the cat.  These two besties go on all kinds of outdoor adventures together, with Baloo often catching a ride from Henry.

You, your dog, and nature.  What could be better?  Hitting the trail solo with your dog could be one of the best things you do for yourself, your dog, and the bond between you.  It offers the opportunity to unplug, unwind, and get outside your comfort zone. It may seem a little daunting at first, hitting the trail alone with just you, your pack, and your dog.  But, as with most things, a little preparedness goes a long way.  Trust us, the benefits are well worth it.

It’s really hard to consider, but every year in the U.S. 10 million dogs and cats are lost to their owners. 10 million!  That means 1 out of 3 pets will go missing in their lifetime. The numbers are staggering, and very hard to think about when you consider it being your furry family member.  But with numbers like these, its also crucial to think about how to prevent your dog from becoming lost, what to do if they are lost and what steps to take if you find a lost dog that isn’t yours.  With the right plan in place, we can reduce the number of dogs that become statistics.

One of the best parts of having a canine adventure buddy is all the exploring you get to do together. Hiking mountains, rivers, forests, canyons, and fields is so much better with a dog.  Tireless and joyful, your dog will go with you wherever you roam, including some very remote places.


But how do you handle it when one of you gets hurt on the trail?
