Dogs who are currently active in the race team. These are the dogs who travel and compete in races with me.
Dogs who have told us they are done running competitively earn a well deserved spot on the couch and get all the cuddles they can handle. They continue to go on shorter fun runs if they want to, and are invaluable for teaching puppies how to run and lead.
Dogs who are under one year old and still just learning to be dogs! Puppies go on lots of adventures with me, learning about the world. Once they are 7 to 9 months old, they go on their first run and are "harness broken," and the next several runs focus on having fun and positive experiences since they are just learning how to be sleddogs. At a year old, their bodies are developed enough that they can join the main race team!
