Hot and dry—that’s summer in Montana. On those long hikes where water’s scarce, keep your hound hydrated with the Collaps-a-Bowl by Kurgo. Strong and sturdy, it holds a whopping 24 ounces and flattens for easy storage after the break. Read more >>

Review: West Paw Skamp
Melissa Doar
My labs—one chocolate one yellow—are power chewers. If you have labs, and if you live in Bozeman chances are you probably do, you know what I mean. My family plays a game where everyone tries to guess how long a dog toy will last. Read more >>

Ruffwear Singletrak Pack
McCarthy, Chris
I’m in the mountains a lot, running a trail, bagging a peak, or shooting a grouse. Typically, my dog Seamus is with me, but rarely by my side. His off-trail adventures generally leave him thirsty and me short of water—but not anymore. Read more >>

McCarthy, Chris
I’m often envious of my dog: breakfast, nap, walk, nap, play, nap, dinner, nap. His is a lifestyle I could definitely tolerate. But now it’s gotten truly ridiculous—my dog sleeps on a better bed than mine. Read more >>

If only I’d had the Ruffwear Beacon years ago, when my old dog Bear went deaf—it would’ve saved me countless hours trying to locate his jet-black body when he’d wander off at night. Read more >>

Every Montana dog owner gets a little anxious during hunting season, and for good reason—there are definitely a few dumbasses roaming the woods, loaded guns in hand. Read more >>
Lizer, Scott
When I came to the realization that my 100-pound dog was essentially a pack animal and could carry things for me with ease, I went out and found Kurgo’s Max Pack doggie backpack. Read more >>
O'Neal, Meghan
You’re on a hike with your canine buddy and you bust out an energy bar. Buster stares at your snack, eyes begging for a bite. But it’s people food, and you down it despite the desperate gaze of your hungry pup. Read more >>
