Adventure dog on a mossy log

Adventure Dog edition of #goodtimesoutside

You’ve had a long day at work or school – it’s been meeting after meeting, and traffic on the commute home was relentless. All you want to do is hit the sofa, turn on Netflix and chill.

“Not so fast!” says the tail wagging in the window. Aside from providing us with awesome companionship and entertainment, dogs are magnificent motivators. There’s no one else more stoked for an adventure, any time, any day.

To get you ready to hit the outdoors with your four-legged friend, this month’s edition of #goodtimesoutside is all about adventure dogs.
