Anyone who has run with dogs knows they’re among the best trail companions a person can have: happy, loyal and always up for an adventure.

This video, by The African Attachment and Salomon Running, introduces us to Gaëtan Ugnon-Fleury and his two canine running buddies, Pépite and Jolyn. As the three of them run in the mountains of southeast France, a narrator reflects on the human-canine bonds forged on the trails.

“Like most dogs, they have it figured out,” the narrator says. “Happiness is so much simpler than you might think.”
