It’s every pet owner’s worst nightmare: you leave your dog alone in the yard for a few minutes, and when you go to the door to call him inside: silence. Or maybe you’re enjoying an evening stroll together when a truck rumbles past, your pup gets spooked, and he slips his collar in a moment of panic. The team here at Atlas Pet Co. knows exactly how you feel, so we put together the best tips to make sure you never lose your best friend out there in the wild.
While we know that an extreme, Atlas-style adventure isn’t for everyone, we believe that every pup deserves an exciting journey to an undiscovered place with his person - even if it’s just for the weekend.
More and more, dog owners are turning to e-collars to keep their pups safe in the great outdoors. On one hand, it’s a brilliant solution - a hands-free device to summon your furry pal when voice command fails. On the other, we had concerns: is it safe? Is it humane?
“Love where you live,” they say. For us here at Atlas, that means finding a home with easy access to trails, beautiful weather, and proximity to a few decent microbreweries. Most importantly, though, it means being able to spend as much time with our four-legged best friends as possible. We asked the experts and did our research to find the best towns in America for dog lovers - we think you’ll agree that the five spots we discovered sound like canine heaven.
Hitting the road with your pup should be about adventure. About loading up the car, rolling down the windows. In case you missed it on our Instagram story, we’ve got you covered with our top three tips for making sure your active dog adventure goes as smoothly as possible.
