Animal Grace Dog Blog from Animal Grace LLC – Active Dog Outfitters Dog Blog

At Animal Grace our goal is to provide dogs and their humans with ideas and products to enrich the lives of both and enhance the human/dog bond.  Some of my fondest memories are of adventures with the dogs in my life over 30 years of camping trips across the West.  Together, we explored the Canyonlands of Utah, fished high-country lakes of Colorado, hiked the wild beaches of Washington and British Columbia and camped in the deserts of California and Arizona.   From remote areas of Idaho and New Mexico to the beautiful, and dog friendly, Oregon coast we enjoyed dozens of trips lasting just a weekend to month-long roaming.

Dogs come alive in nature where their prodigious sensory abilities flood the brain with an endless stream of data about the plants, animals and weather around them.

They perceive their environment on a more visceral level than we do and to afford them the opportunity to truly “be dogs” is one of the kindest acts a human can bestow on a dog.  Witness the joy of a dog as she feels the sand on her paws, hears the bird’s sing or the coyotes howl, swims in the lake or sniffs out the reams of information left by other critters on the trail.

My intent in this blog and with the products we offer on our website is to foster a safe and productive experience for all involved.   I want to suggest ways to make it easier for you to get out there and chalk up your own memories.   We will also discuss nutrition, health, equipment and canine amusements among other topics.  In addition we will look into interesting destinations, camping areas, outdoor dog-centric sports and topics of general interest including, on occasion, outdoor products for humans. The scope will include concerns of daily life with dogs in our homes and workplaces.

Animal Grace,, consists of my wife and I along with our dogs – Chaco (Akita, Cattle Bog blend) and Boojum (American Bulldog/Pit/Catahoula?).   We created and operated Chama’s Dog Wash & Wellness for nearly 5 years and gained a reputation for carrying the best food and treats in town.  We also stocked the largest inventory of outdoor dog gear in San Diego which we now carry on our website at  Some of the brands we have on our website include:

RuffWear     EzyDog     Granite Gear     WolfPacks     Mountain Dog     D-fa     NRG Dog Food

Alpine Outfitters     Herbsmith     Mushroom Matrix     and more
