Zeus and Sedona are serious road dogs. The can hang on long car trips and are up for anything thrown their way by their owner, Jordan Kahana. They trust him, because he was there for them when they needed it most.

Kahana found the two puppies on an Arizona highway in late December 2016, according to a video on his YouTube channel. After a trip to the vet, who estimated that the brother and sister pups were roughly 8-week-old Border Collie mixes, the trio finished up the trek Kahana had planned, hitting three more states until returning to his home in Los Angeles, California.

“I mean, what was I supposed to do in that situation?” Kahana says in the video. “From there the Adventure Squad was born, hitting national parks, three more states and eventually getting back home in Los Angeles.”

The Southern California location serves as a base for the Adventure Squad’s nearly monthly outings. Some are local, like Sandstone Peak in the Santa Monica mountains, but others are as far as out of the country. Clips and pics from all outings are on Kahana’s YouTube channel, as well as Facebook and Instagram.

Dogs are forbidden on the trail 🤷🏻‍♂️ #FirstHike #AdventureSquad #ForgivenessOverPermission

When the dogs were still small, the Adventure Squad hit great California spots — like the Cabazon Dinosaurs outside of Palm Springs and a boardwalk hammock hang in Venice Beach.

This was the most coordinated shot, all day 🤦🏻‍♂️ #AdventureSquad

Now that they’re older, the trips are longer and farther away. Kahana, who works in video production, even quit his job and dedicated more of his time to travel with the squad.

We haven't been everywhere, but it's on our list 📝

Most recently, they went on something called The Big Adventure. They’ve hit Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Glacier National Park in Montana and Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. They also tripped down the West Coast, hitting up Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington, for a dog-friendly Mariners game.

These dogs have come a long way, and they have a lot more to see. Kahana says on Instagram: “We haven’t been everywhere but it’s on our list.” Happy trails and tails, Adventure Squad!
