Not just a companion, the dog has padded beside Natives and explorers since the advent of man on the North American continent. Friend, hunter, fellow rover, hauler of trade goods and household items, the dog has been a working member of the family throughout history. From travois and sledge in Native pre-history, through the paw prints of Hollywood canine stars, to search and rescue in today’s adventurous back country, man and dog continue to work together.
