It’s a new year! I think we can all agree that 2020 was… well, it was hard. Although hopefully you can look back on 2020 and find things you were grateful for, it was a challenging year for so many people. As we all move into a new year with new possibilities, it’s a great time to set your intentions for the year, your life, and your relationships (canine included!).
Your cell phone is dinging with Facebook notifications, the e-mail in your inbox keeps piling up and that laundry you need to do is just sitting in the corner, silently judging you. There are a million and one things competing for your time and attention, and they’re all screaming that they are the most important. It’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.
Then your dog comes in with a tennis ball and puts his head in your lap....
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!
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?

I know you’ve received an overflow of emails from companies (many much more knowledgeable and qualified than ours) addressing the widespread impact of COVID-19. I’m not sure what a note from a brand can provide in these anxious and fearful times, however I am finding communication to be more important and honestly, comforting than ever.
Getting a new puppy so is so exciting! Everything is new to them, and it’s fun to watch them explore the world. Their first encounter with stairs, learning how to carry a stick twice their size, protecting you from their reflection in the mirror and so much more. And there is a lot you have to teach your puppy. He needs to know where to go to the bathroom, how to chew bones and not the new shoes you just bought, and how to sleep on his own.
You got a puppy in part to have an awesome adventure buddy. But have you given much thought to what you’ll need to teach your puppy to become the ultimate adventure dog? Some people simply head out on the trail with their new puppy and hope for the best. But you weren’t born knowing how to hike, camp and climb, and neither was your puppy.
Here are our top training tips to set you and your dog up for many miles of successful camping trips and mountain trails.
Prevention is always the best medicine and we all want to keep our adventure companions safe. We’re vigilant in protecting them from cars, from unfriendly wildlife, and even other dogs. But how often do we think about preventing them from being poisoned? What types of things are poisonous and how do we keep our dogs from getting into them?
You’re ready for an awesome weekend full of outdoor adventures with your pup.
Water? Check. Leash? Check.
Granola bars? Check. Wait…..do they make granola bars for dogs?
Buying dog treats at the store can be quick and easy when you’re in a hurry, but if you want to ensure that your dog is getting the absolute best, whole ingredients, or if your dog has specific food requirements, there’s no substitute for making your own.
January is National Walk Your Dog Month, so we thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about loose leash walking. A basic, but sometimes elusive behavior.
We love being on the go with our dogs at all times, but some owners encounter a frustrating problem with pulling. So as much as we want our best friend to go everywhere with us, sometimes they simply don’t because we also value our arm remaining in it’s socket.
Did you know that 2 January is National Pet Travel Safety Day? And with a company slogan like Never Roam Alone™… we can obviously get behind a holiday like this.
(Seriously… we don’t make these things up, just ask Google.)
Your dog is a member of the family and likely to tag along when you hit the road, but just like traveling with any other family member, their safety and comfort is important regardless of the distance or destination.
We’ve put together a list of 10 safety tips for you and your best friend.
