The Pack Goes Kayak Camping Across the Lake

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.

We take nine-month old German shepherd, Moxie, on a kayak camping trip across Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, to test out Kurgo's Surf 'N Turf Life Jacket.


Jess takes Moxie in a single kayak that kayak rental Diversiones Acuáticas Balam owner Rene Portillo has modified to accommodate a large dog. Greg lumbers behind in a standard double loaded down with the camping gear.


We cross much of Lake Atitlan - always in view of the three prominent volcanoes - to a secluded cove outside the small town of Tzununa where our friend Federico has a house and where we set up camp on a veranda among the treetops.


Join us for some spectacular aerial views of Lake Atitlan and a detailed review of the Surf 'N Turf Life Jacket, the Tossing Disk, and several other excellent Kurgo products.
