Canadog manufactures and sells high-end dog harnesses for skijoring, mushing and canicross (jogging with your dog). Owners Shelley and Rob Ramsay opened their retail store in Kimberley in 2013 but moved to a new, bigger location this June on Howard Street. The store carries leashes and collars; booties and coats; toys, treats and dog food; and wildlife deterrent sprays and horns. “We pretty much cover anything you need to have a positive time out with your dogs,” said Shelley. The Ramsays consider dogs to be great teachers (they own many), with lessons such as “Be patient, calm and assertive.”
