And the Winners Are...

The 2014 Outdoor Dog Photo Contest turned out to be quite the event with over 200 entries! Picking just three was extremely though. So many of these great photos embodied just why I started Backcountry K-9 - to help people outfit their dogs to join in on outdoor adventures. Whether it is a day at the beach, a long trail or just a trip around the block, our dogs are part of our families and we want them there bedside us.

A huge thanks to everyone that submitted pictures. Thanks also to Ruffwear for helping us promote the contest.
