What you'll do
Inspired by The Dodo’s beloved original series, Ruff Life with Lee Asher, you’ll get the exclusive opportunity to experience what life is really like living with 9 rescued dogs. Our day-in-the-life will start by meeting up at a local forest trailhead where my dogs and I love to walk. It’s peaceful and quiet, so it’s a great place for you to meet the pack. We’ll go on a nice, easy hike to give you a sense of the Tahoe area and you’ll get to see firsthand how much the dogs love to explore. Next we’ll retreat to the famous RV and if you’re lucky you’ll get to snuggle up with one (or more) of many rescue dogs on the couch! We’ll do a dog training session so you can see how we keep things organized in a house of canine chaos and then we’ll end the day by building a bonfire and hanging out over drinks and s’mores.

Hey! I’m Lee Asher. I’m 31 years old and when I’m not on the road with my dogs (Molly, Cali, Butters, BoBo, Lillie, Stella, Tony, Penny Lane and Queen NoLaTeefas), I’m here in my favorite place in the world, South Lake Tahoe. I love showing my dogs (and people!) a good time, and I feel so grateful that I’ve found a way to do both. I’ve been passionate about animals my entire life, so on New Year’s Eve 2017, I decided to quit my job, buy an RV and travel the country with my pack of (at the time) 6 rescue dogs to spread awareness about animal adoption. That first year, we visited 49 states and hosted adoption events with shelters all across the U.S. and Canada! Together, we’ve helped over 500 dogs get adopted. Now I have 9 dogs and we’re lucky to call Lake Tahoe home. We’d love to take you on our favorite hike with the whole pack.
