One year ago I brought home an adorable 8 week old labrador puppy, and as expected he has taken over my life. Not as expected? He’s taken over my social media as well. So today Thor is excited to announce his first brand ambassadorship with BackcountryK9.com! I’ll be helping him out since I’m the one who can type and has the Instagram password.

Me? A brand ambassador?
Me? A brand ambassador? (AmbassaThor?)

Thor asks, “Does this mean more camping? Because I love camping!”

My house.
My house.

“I also love hiking, so more of that too, please.”

Is that a squirrel over there? I think I saw a squirrel.

Throughout the year, Thor and I will be testing out some outdoor doggy gear from Backcountry K-9. Although I’m a huge outdoor gear-head, the world of dog gear is new and a bit overwhelming. I grew up with dogs and they pretty much just had leashes, collars, toys, and food bowls. I had no idea there were so many things to help our canine buddies be as comfortable on the trail as us! I’m looking forward to trying things out with a fresh perspective, and of course Thor will be thrilled to get out and test as much as possible! He loves camping and hiking so much!

The best part? We have a giveaway for Calipidder.com readers! Backcountry K-9 has generously offered a $100 gift card. The giveaway will be open for one week, and I’ll randomly choose one winner via the Rafflecopter app below. Good luck!

  1. love this, love getting to hike with dogs!

  2. Nice! I’ve got an 11 month old border collie pup that loves going on mountain adventures, but the selection of dog gear available really is overwhelming. It would be great to see how some of the stuff actually performs in the field.

  3. This is great news!! I am sure Thor is extremely excited to be an ambassador (he sure has the looks for the job!) My pup Bacon (who I know you know from the forum!) loves to go out adventuring!

    1. I love Bacon! He always looks so happy!

    1. That’s hilarious! I’m (obviously) partial to yellow labs.

  4. Congrats to Thor! We’re thinking about getting dogs, since it’s been several years since our last one passed – this gift cardwould be a good incentive.

  5. Tegan and I love hiking!

  6. I hike with my dogs all of the time but they are mini Dachshunds, which are VERY hard to fit with good, quality outdoor gear. I keep trying though. Maybe the BackcountryK9 will have some stuff.

  7. Thor is just too darn cute; congrats to him!

  8. My 9 year old Chocolate Lab, Julia and my 1 1/2/ year old Terrier, Delilah and I love outdoor adventures. We like to go to beach and lakes, we love to hike and just be outdoors.

  9. I have a 2 year old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever who loves to hike run run run did i mention run.. and she is also doing a little Dock diving…

  10. Love ruffwear! I bet you and your pooch will havw a great time trying out all the gear!

  11. What a handsome pup! It looks like you guys have some awesome adventures together. Hiking and being outdoors with our best canine companions just makes the experience even better 🙂 Looking forward to your gear reviews 🙂

  12. I regularly take my dogs running and hiking and ruff wear products are the best!

  13. My dog and I hike and it’s the best meditative, stress reducing activity for me. Can’t wait for warmer weather here in the north east!

  14. My 4yr old Stella loves running with me on road and trail. She’s got some leg issues from being a abused pup…so we keep it short, but she loves cold weather running and exploring any trail I take her to! Would love to get her a new harness!!
