About Us


We think that life should be an adventure – and the best partner in any adventure has four legs.

Whether it’s a walk to a neighbourhood coffee shop or a scramble to a mountain top, your dog loves spending every moment with you, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. We make dog gear for you and your dog – dog gear for every adventure!

Good gear is worth its weight in gold. We think your dog’s gear should be just as thoughtfully and well made as yours. If something isn’t as perfect as we are able to make it, it doesn’t go out the door.

Everything you buy from North Range Dogs is made by hand for you and the adventures you and your dog share in Calgary, Alberta.


Chief Human Officer (CHO)


Shannon is pretty much the raddest person around (and since she is the one writing this, she can tell you anything she wants).

All jokes aside, I don't have to tell you that I created North Range Dogs and design the gear we make because I love dogs and the daily adventures that come with living with and loving dogs -- I bet you’ve already figured that out. I started out making dog gear for our family – the kind of dog gear I wanted to use, and then people started asking if I could make stuff for them too. And the rest, well you know.

I’m a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and love working with dogs and their humans to live their best lives together!

Do you have someone in your life that supports all your crazy ideas? One day you are like "I'm going to start a dog business that will take over the world" and they are "Awesome, what do you need from me for world domination?" That's Wade.

Wade helps with making, and shipping, and schlepping everything to and from markets, he can fix just about anything AND he's the best cook.

I highly recommend you all find your version of Wade.

Last in this crazy cast of characters are the dogs. They are why we get up every day.... yep, no alarm needed here, we all run on pure herding dog energy. They have 14 million nicknames between them including Slippers and Mittens when they are being rotten turkeys. They will tell you they are only ever perfect angels.

These guys are the first testers of all of the gear, and they keep me honest as a trainer, and they bring much joy and laughter into our house.

Hopefully you learned a little about us and what we are about here. Just a normal, non-instagram-perfect family who love dogs and everyday adventures and want to make gear for you and your dog. If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out ⬇️
