Ever dreamed of moving to the mountains and settling down? Get a nice house, a splitboard, a dog – it’s the ultimate fantasy, and one that’s surprisingly easy to accomplish if you’re willing to tear yourself away from the trappings of life in the UK, but that’s a story for another article… For now we’ll focus on the four-legged part of the plan: powder pooches!
Whilst there are tons of dog breeds that thrive in a mountain environment, not to mention cross-breeds, we’ve picked out a few that from our travel experiences that compliment an active, backcountry-based existence the best, whilst sneaking in a couple of Insta-famous dogs owned by pros. Brandon Cocard’s even has its own account! And as always, feel free to weigh in on how we’ve missed out your favourite canine variety in the comments below.
