MEET OUR BRAND AMBASSADORS
Every one of our Ambassadors was chosen for a reason. They're not just a bunch of pretty faces, but dogs with a purpose. Some are therapy dogs in training, growing Pups that are learning the world, some are dogs in training with some pretty special humans who have made it their life's mission to provide a safe and loving environment to a dog that did not have the best of upbringing, and most of all? Lots are amazing advocates for their breed.
The one thing all our Ambassadors have in common? Every one of them are adventure seekers. Whether their seeking trails by foot up into the mountains, paddleboarding or kayaking the oceans edge, off-roading while exploring new roads, or road tripping in their beautiful provinces or cities. Every weekend, every beautiful day, you will find these dogs and their families soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the outdoors.
Pitbull x Mastiff x Rotti
Outbound Canine's #1 fan, product tester, supporter, and the dog that made all this possible! Tucker joins in on every hike, sits shotgun on every roadtrip, explores the backroads to no ends, and is one heck of a mud junkie! He loves being out in the sunshine and rolling around in the grass like the puppy he is at heart.
Siberian Husky x Great Pyrenees
You want to know where Indy is truly herself? Her spirit comes alive when off-roading and surrounded by nature with her 2 humans. Once adopted from the Burnaby SPCA after being abandonded with her siblings in a dumpster, she became apart of an adventure filled family where she learned to love the trails, curling up next to the campfire, and got a taste for Doritos.
OBC O.G. over here! Chai is a bully mix breed, she was a rescue that found her forever home nearly 5 years ago with us. A dog that had never scaled a mountain or swam in a lake (now we can't seem to get her out of the water 😂) You can find us off the beaten path looking for our next adventure with all the best sniffs! This lady is full of sass, snacks and always on the hunt for her next butt scratches!
Mini American Eskimo
Berkley may look like a pristine white dog, but his true identity is a mud monster. You will often find him dunking his head in water or wading through mud puddles. Although we live in the city, Berks and I love to spend our time exploring mountains and beaches, hanging out with friends, and traveling around BC. You'll also find us training almost every day. Berkley is a reactive dog and that means that every day is an opportunity for training and management. Berkley struggles with stranger danger and leash reactivity towards dogs. We are always more than happy to talk to anyone who is struggling and needs a buddy to chat with.
Is Rio the cuddliest queen of naps? Yes. But don’t let her predisposition for snoozing fool you. She will never turn down a good time! Exploring new trails, swimming in any available body of water, or chasing a frisbee down the beach? She’s your girl. Once back home, Rio will wait patiently for you to find somewhere to sit as she requires a lap to cuddle on. Even though she has no idea how big she is, her even bigger heart makes her snuggles totally irresistible!
Porter and I have come such a long way not only as an owner and pet, but as a team. Porter is a lemon… He is reactive, anxious, allergic to the world, as well as very bionic!
Koda takes adventuring very seriously! The moment I take my socks out of the drawer he knows what's up and is headed for the door to get his gear on to hit the trails. He loves the snow of course and though he enjoys a good swim at the beach or in a river on a hike he's most excited about diving head first into a snowbank. He was rescued at 4 weeks old along with his 7 siblings from Northern Quebec and has been fortunate enough to keep in contact with all of them for playdates. He's absolutely full of life and loves soaking up all the attention from the people he meets...especially at the Ballpark where we spend most of our summer nights!
Belgian Mailnois x Border Collie
Some of our favourite pastimes are hiking, camping, cuddling up on cold days with my giant mug of coffee and drinking ciders by the campfire. Kilo, my Belgian malinois Border Collie mix is lucky enough to join me on all of these adventures (or maybe I’m the lucky one)! Kilo is a sporty, spunky hooligan with endless energy. We recently started some dog sports including flyball which both Kilo and I are super excited about! Along with Kilo I have three cats, a snake and a fiancé (I’m also a soon to be mom to quails) you could say it’s a full house! We have been long time lovers of OBC and have quite the collection; my favourite biothane has to be anything peach/grey/tan. Kilo can usually be found wearing a 1” buckle collar with a matching 8ft multifunction leash.
Australian Shepherd x Pyrenees
Kylo has been an important part of my life for the past 2 years, ever since I first started fostering him as my fifth foster back in April of 2021. Since his gotcha day we have been working on building our relationship based on patience, trust & love and I am so proud of how far we’ve come. Kylo arrived a nervous & anxious pup and continues to grow everything single day into a more confident & playful boy. We have continued to aid in fostering some other pups since adopting Kylo, and the amount of patience and direction Kylo is able to provide to these fosters is incredible. We love to explore and adventure together and continue our never ending journey of training & living a fun life! Our go to staple items from OBC are definitely the martingale collar, 8' multifunctional leash & the grab tab!
Australian Cattle Dog
Being named after her dog Dad’s Toyota Tacoma, this girl was born for off-road adventuring. Taco knows go mode and loves to endlessly explore The beautiful BC Backcountry, The Kootenays and Chilcotin region are among her faves, but she is also happy to chill and sleep the day away at her parents’ feet. Like most cattle dogs, she is Velcro to her humans. As much as she loves her beauty rest, if Taco sees water she’s in it swimming like a pro and if you have a ball she will fetch until you say stop, because she never will. While Taco loves most other dogs she loves people and children more and no matter what their size will greet everyone with a perfectly distanced kiss on the nose. We’re currently working on containing her excitement around meeting people and saving kisses until they’re asked for. Taco lives in Langley with her parents and two feline sibling who she equally both loves and harasses.
Pembroke + Cardigan Corgi
Don't underestimate Oliver's short stubby legs, he is quite the runner and climber! Oliver is a lovely, affectionate boy to every person he meets, and greets everyone with a helicopter-wagging tail. With new dogs, he is quite nervous and takes awhile to warm up, but his parents are working very hard to help him grow more confident and neutral. Oliver loves exploring quiet trails, speeding into every body of water he sees, and fighting every single chew he gets! With his love of climbing, and desire to please his parents, we'd love to take him to agility in the near future.
F1 Mini Goldendoodle
Finn is the sweetest little goofball, and an absolute joy to be around. When he’s not stealing socks, he loves to adventure outdoors and work on his landscaping and arborist skills. He loves people and will happily greet you with a toy and butt wiggle, but he can be reactive with certain dogs. It’s been a whole year of learning the ins and outs of his reactivity while rebuilding his confidence and neutrality through training and sports! We love living life with this little dood and can’t wait to see what new adventures are in store!
Who doesn't need a Hero in their life? Well my Hiro is a sassy boy who always has to be the center of attention! I am a registered veterinary technician who by work long hours but that doesn't bother Hiro. By day he's usually comfortably snoozing in a kennel while I work, or getting lots of attention from my coworkers, and by night he's doing zoomies in the house. Although he's got two older cat brothers, he believe he is an only child. Don't let his cute face fool you, he's mischievous and is usually up to no good! You'll usually find us hiking on a mountain on the weekends
Border Collie x Aussie
Oakley, aka the Bossie (Border Collie x Aussie Shepherd). He is full of spunk and has so much love to give. He wants to be everyone’s friend which is what has started our journey of dealing with his reactivity from over excitement and leash frustration. At home, you will find him playing fetch, herding his collie ball or cuddling on the couch. Although Oakley is a high energy breed, he also learnt to have an off switch from a young age. Oakley loves the water and is always up for an adventure!
Aussie x Border Collie
Named after a gorgeous glacial lake in Mt. Robson Provincial Park, Kinney can be found adventuring in the Canadian Rockies on a daily basis. She currently calls Golden, BC home and loves to be where the trails are steep and the rivers run wild! From sitting in the bow of a canoe, to cross country skiing, and trail running, there is nothing this adventure aussie can't do (except be nice to other dogs while on a leash, but this is a work in progress). We are so stoked to join the OBC team and a community of reactive and adventurous dogs!
Australian Cattle Dog x Coonhound
Odin was rescued through Muddy Paws Rescue in New York City, after being surrendered to a shelter as a puppy. Odin is now a year and a half old, living in Toronto, learning to be more confident and comfortable in the city. He’s got big feelings about sounds and is working through some resource guarding. The typical heeler, he is clever, eager to work, full of energy, and a total mama’s boy. While training isn’t always linear, we’ve seen some massive improvements with Odin’s reactivity and are enjoying learning together as a team.
Alaskan Husky x Eskimo x Spaniel
Millie is predominantly an Alaskan-type Husky with Spaniel mix. She’s such a lovable goof and the most loyal friend you could ask for. Millie bringing joy to everyone that crosses her path is her forte. She can make anyone on their worst day smile. We fostered Millie from the Endless Pawsabilities Rescue after K9 Advocates rescued her and all 9 of her puppies! Millie along with her puppies were going to be dumped on the street and surrendered. They made the trek down to B.C from Yellowstone and the rest is history. She can finally call a place home and watching her experience everything with a new lease on life has been absolutely amazing. From hiking to swimming or rock climbing Millie is a bundle of adventure. She is definitely a dare devil but all angel. Oh- and she loves to run! We cannot wait to put our OBC gear to the test.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi
These stumps may look short, but Wedges has lots to give. He has the energy and personality to make up for the lost height. Ever seen a dog who wants to play fetch, but doesn’t want to give up the object? Yeah, welcome to the club. He also doesn’t like the water. But he loves camping, trail-ing, and being one with nature (unless it’s raining). If you see us though, please give us some space. We are actively working on Wedges’ leash reactivity and have made huge progress!
