Up for a hike or a run at any time of the day or night. Cleans the floor after meals without being asked. Fosters social connections much more gratifyingly than Tinder or Facebook—and isn’t compiling reams of personal data behind our backs (at least, as far as we know). Who is this too-good-to-be-true companion? None other than your dog, of course. As a gesture of gratitude for all that they do, we’ve dedicated the following articles to recreating with, caring for, and simply loving our best canine friends. From the pros and cons of popular breeds to insider trail and restaurant recommendations—even where you can get a dish of Park City–made doggie ice cream—if you’re looking for the local pooch scoop, you’ve barked up the right tree.
