Paddleboarding through Utah's Glen Canyon is just one of the adventures Trevor DeHaas has embarked on with his beloved dog.

Trevor DeHaas set off from Pennsylvania on February 23 to travel the US, taking his trusty Catahoula Leopard dog Kahlua with him. 

According to the Daily Mail, Kahlua, who is two-and-a-half years old, has already climbed Colorado's Raspberry Mountain, paddleboarded through Utah's Glen Canyon and visited the lowest point in North America, at California's Badwater Basin. 

DeHaas is documenting their trip via Instagram and his website. He decided to quit his job and hit the road with Kahlua after finding out his incurable kidney disease was deteriorating, according to the Daily Mail. He is making the most of the time he has, taking his best friend with him. 

 

The amateur photographer is using savings to fund his trips, and hopes to make some extra money from selling his photos.

DeHaas told the Daily Mail: 'It's been one heck of an adventure. Kahlua's done more travelling than most humans I know and we've only just started to scratch the surface.

'I may be biased but I think she is the perfect adventure dog. She's always down to join me and every new escapade brings us closer together.

'She inspires me to live life to the fullest. It became a goal of mine to try and give her the most exciting life possible.

'I had never been someone to hike a mountain but Kahlua's love to be outside rubbed off on me and now I can't imagine not being outdoors.'
