HOW WE MET
In her former life, my Chocolate Lab, Tatum was an overweight and under exercised foster dog. I welcomed her to her new home on Easter Sunday, where she soon discovered she hit the Labrador jackpot! Tatum quickly transformed from a lazy homebody to an active and adventurous 3 year old. I couldn’t wait to hit the trails with my new companion. She took to the hills with excitement and gusto, just as I expected.
Throughout the years, we’ve ventured up mountains, camped in remote valleys, and strolled through the Colorado forests. With each adventure Tatum and I bonded not only through the exercise and training, but also during snack time. It started with granola bar crumbs falling on the ground for the taking. Soon enough, I was sharing my apples, trail mix and peanut butter sandwiches. We both looked forward to these snack breaks, and before long I was packing Tatum’s very own treat bags to carry on our hikes.
From trail treats to experimental baked goods, Tatum and I work tirelessly in the kitchen mixing and tasting. Together we’ve created a line of homemade dog biscuits called Trail Dog Treats. A variety of all natural, wheat-free treats, perfect for any dog on the go!
