Blaze a new trail

Helen, Eddie & Ollie.


I'm Helen, and you could say I'm the crazy dog lady in my friend group. And if you were wondering why I have thousands of photos of my dogs... I am the photographer of the group too!

I have always been an active, outdoorsy, nature-loving country girl. I dreamt of a dog to adventure with my whole childhood, so that's why I have not one, but TWO fireballs by my side at all times - Tollers Eddie and Ollie!

Eddie is what I call a gentle giant. My first dog and my sweetest friend with the kindest eyes. He is a licensed therapy dog, but don't let that confuse you - he has the energy to be the coolest hiking buddy. We have had the most awesome camping trips and adventures with him over the years.

Ollie, the little floof as we call him, is the baby boy of our family, but he sure has the heart of a lion (he is a Leo, hehe). Ollie is a true go-getter and every moment with him is 100% fun.

The two of them make a wonderful duo. Me, my husband, my daughter and our two cats are incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. Our dogs enrich our lives more than one could ever imagine and adventuring with them is our happy place.



Mia, Joe, Archie & Asher.


I’m Mia, and Archie has been my adventure companion for the past two years.
We have recently added another explorer to our team, and we can’t wait to start spending time together in the great outdoors! Archie is the motivation behind my love of nature, it’s funny how dogs can bring out that side in you, isn’t it?!

Before getting Archie I would never have dreamed of spending my spare time doing outdoor activities and planning camping trips for our time away... fast-forward two years and I can’t imagine anything better! Archie’s infectious thirst for life is the reason we’ve decided to add Asher to the family, another four-legged bundle of love to make memories with.



Heather, Brian, Ellie &Kato.


Hi Friends! I am so honored to continue working with Hurtta as part of the Ambassador Team!

We are Heather, Ellie, & Kato, adventure enthusiasts based in stunning Washington State, USA. Our free time is spent exploring all the Pacific Northwest has to offer – from mountain peaks to coastal shores.

Ellie is our resident gremlin. She is a rescue mutt about 6 years old. Her favorite activity is whatever gets her the dirtiest. Rain? No hesitation! Mud? Mud? Game on! Ellie shines with personality. She is one hundred and ten percent, one hundred and ten percent of the time. There's a reason her nickname is Jumping Jellybean!

Kato is a 5 year old Shiba Inu. He is the ultimate couch potato, incredibly food motivated, and obsessed with winning over every human he greets. Despite his laziness, Kato is up for any adventure unless he deems it a pointless walk around the neighborhood.

We look forward to sharing our adventures with you.



Avery, Navi & Newman.


My name is Avery, and this is Navi and Newman - my two happy go lucky labradors. Navi, the rock and dock diving queen, and Newman the tail wagging sweet boy.

We absolutely loved being on the Hurtta Adventurer 2021 team and are beyond honoured to be staying on as Hurtta Ambassadors.

Follow us for a variety of adventures, from snowy Northern Ontario trails, to rock climbing on the escarpment, and paddleboarding whenever we can get our toes wet.
