Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? We recently took a few of our office dogs out to Smith Rock in Terrebonne, Oregon to test and demonstrate our latest creation…The DoubleBack™ climbing harness for a dog. Our resident climbing experts strapped up three office dogs–Hank (a black Lab), Jack (a white Alaskan Husky), and Badger (a multi-colored Husky/Shepherd)–and tested their climbing and belay skills.
The “Highest Altitude Award” went to Badger, who managed to scale his way up to a ledge where he took a nice long break before making his way back down. “Most Relaxed Award” went to Jack, who used the harness like a hammock, nearly swinging himself to sleep. And Hank, our oldest climber, received the “Lifetime Achievement Award,” proving that, in fact, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
