WW: Sled Dogs

we learned last year that pig can't be next to anyone because she picks fights.

burton (BM's aussie) was a total rock star this year.
mags went right to work and never did anything wrong.

steaming past BM. these hounds can cruise when they get going!

only the puppy had energy left for the last leg

but she was done once she was unhooked.

  4. I recently found out there is an active dog sledding group near where I live. I have found my new hobby... (in a fear years when my current dogs pass and I can get bigger ones).

  5. That is so cool!! Do you have to train them or do they just sort of figure it out?

    1. A little bit of both. Burton knows all the commands so he does the bulk of the steering, but Pig and Mags took right to the pulling and they follow the gee and haw commands relatively well. They really enjoy it though!

  8. Hmm, wonder if the mighty mastiff and weirdo great dane might be down for this! Might be more achievable than buying a mini horse cart!
