Our Story

Owned by Chris & Nicole Van Ruler, Outdoor K9 is a pet store based out of Steamboat Springs, CO, that specializes in outdoor products for your canine companion.  The Van Rulers moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, in the spring of 2012. In Steamboat they found a a community that was both family- and dog-friendly, with endless outdoor recreational opportunities. This inspired the family, in their latest adventure, to move to Steamboat Springs, a place they wanted to both raise their family (currently two dogs and a little girl) and share their love of dogs and adventure with the community they love.
