Team AdventurUs

 Stormin' Norman has the heart of a lab in a bulldog body and loves a good adventure. Car camping and hanging at the crag are more his pace these days. Betty loves adventure. Whether it is playing with her friends on a morning hike, hanging at the campfire, chillin' at the crag, or backpacking with her humans she is ready to go! Their humans make sure that TurboPUP bars are always on hand, poo bags are at the ready, and there is room in the tent for these two. Saveria's company, The AdventurUs, consults companies and organizations committed to connecting people to the outdoors. Saveria is also an REI Outdoor School Instructor, trip leader for the Sierra Club, and American Hiking Society Ambassador. Paul mastered many of his outdoor skills back in his youth as an Eagle Scout, so getting out and getting dirty is nothing new to him. He currently works in the film industry as a camera assistant to support his outdoor habit. The AdventurUs spirit of this family has earned them a spot on the TurboPUP Ambassador Team!

Southern Gentlemen

Eric Champlin is a photographer, writer and advertising Creative Director who has loved hiking, kayaking, running and backpacking Georgia’s stunning landscapes since moving to Atlanta in 1999. Together, he and his TurboPUP Jake love to continue exploring their home state.

 

 

Dusty Desert Dogs

Goose lives in the Arizona desert with his family, consisting of me (Kerri), two other older dogs, my husband, and a small little human child. We take full advantage of all the wonderful hiking trails Arizona has to offer. When It gets to hot in the summer months we head North and hike in the higher elevation or swim in the lakes. We love the terrain! It is rough, and the days are sunny and hot. Goose loves spending time with his family and on our hiking, backpacking and camping trips it is always a perfect way for our whole family to bond. 

 

Teacher's Pet

Don't be mislead by Duncan's size! Duncan has been on the trail, the water and kayaking since she was a pup. One of Duncan's favorite sounds is hearing the gear closet door open!  Just like her turbo owners, she needs some off time from the everyday rigors of sleeping on the couch or bathing in the sun. When Duncan's on the trail, she's blazing it!

 

Melvin on the Move

Follow Maxine the Labradoodle as she hikes, runs, stand-up paddleboards, and generally adventures through life with her 2-legged parents Melanie and Kevin (AKA Melvin)! 

The Wolf Pack

Travis is an ultra marathon runner who loves to train with his dogs. Shiva has competed with Travis in a half-marathon. Once, Shiva even registered as a competitor in a trail race, and she and Travis both finished in the Top Ten! When not racing, Cab and Shiva enjoy long runs, hikes, and frolicking in the snow. 

 

Divas Got Game

You may recognize Maddie as the unofficial face of Gonzaga University, and her little sister Sophie as Maddie's stunt double. These divas are at at home on campus or at a photo shoot, but they're no one-trick puppies! Maddie is also a service dog for owner Joann. 

The Nomadic Retrievers

These rescue dogs get around! Chaska and Toma have traveled extensively throughout United States, accompanying us on nearly all of our adventures. They have camped and hiked in over 25 states and are both certified therapy dogs! Toma makes weekly visits to Ruiz Public Library where children read to him to practice their literacy skills. Chaska enjoys visits to The Settlement Home for children where she is always the center of attention.

 Colorado Canine

 Pat and Devin both moved to Colorado to take advantage of all of the amazing outdoor adventures this state has to offer, with so many diverse natural playgrounds and easily-accessible areas. Bella was adopted from the Boulder Human Society in 2011, and soon grew up to become a Mountainbeast. Bella isn't just a pet, she's part of the family.  Whether horseback riding in the foothills, fly fishing in Clear Creek Canyon, training for ultra marathons in Boulder County Open Space, or backpacking in Indian Peaks Wilderness, Bella helps Devin and Pat to remember to take time for the things they enjoy most in life.
