More than 30 years ago, Pat and Bob Lugo turned their love for dog sledding into a family-owned business that would feed their newfound passion – and provide equipment for their 50-plus dogs. The Minnesota couple purchased a harness business, Katmai Kennels, and made harnesses, collars, leads and boots out of their home with the help of their four children.

Bob was an avid racer and competed with the dogs throughout the winter season. When the family traveled to the sled dog races, they would sell their hand-crafted dog equipment from the back of their truck. On the weekends that the family wasn’t involved in a race, they skijored on nearby trails.

Mushing served as the foundation of the company and together, the Lugo family created a culture that focused on providing quality, durable and functional dog gear. Eventually, the Lugo’s daughter, Lisa, took over the business, which is now known as Ultra Paws. Because Lisa and her husband have always had a variety of dogs, she decided to expand the company’s product offerings to include gear that is suitable for all active dogs.
