Your Attitude Matters More than Your Breed

Ruff on the Road


on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws

It's Motorcycle Diaries + A Dog's Purpose. German Shepherd Moxie narrates her adventure travels and the lessons she learns along the way.

‘You have no idea what’s coming tomorrow,’ Papa Bear warns Moxie. And it’s true that she doesn’t but that doesn’t mean she’s caught unawares. She’s ready for anything but not because it’s in her breeding as a German Shepherd; it’s all a question of attitude.


The trip begins with a ride around beautiful, volcano-rimmed Lake Atitlan but the off-road motorcycle adventure actually starts just outside Ruff on the Road's home and all through Panajachel village.


After a scenic ride around the lake, the pack reaches San Lucas Tolimán village where they check into comfortable, pet-friendly Hotel Tolimán.


The next day they leave the wheels behind and take to feet and paws for a hike up Atitlan Volcano to spend the night on the wind-swept summit under the stars.
