Eric Harne (a.k.a. “Columbus”)

(Founder/ Adventure Guide)

Eric has shared most of his life with dogs.  He has trained his boxers to be Canine Good Citizens and Therapy dogs.  Most recently, though, he is the proud parent of one of our ambassador OutHounds, Charlie.  Charlie is an Adventure Dog, thru and thru, and Eric credits Charlie’s exuberance with encouraging him to Get UP and Get OUT.

Our OutHounds Adventures journey has led Eric to discover talents he didn’t even know he had–backpacking, screen printing and nature conservancy to name a few!  Eric is the enthusiastic motor that drives this little engine that could.
