Jay and hiking buddy Poncho


What started out in Asheville (1999) as a unique “brick and mortar” retail store for hiking with your dog grew into the product line found here. We were featured in Outside Magazine as one of America’s best gear shops (2002).

These days our sew shop (fireflysewing.com) manufactures the Trail Hound brand of gear.
