Hello fellow dog powered sports enthusiasts,
We have had another busy year with presentations, training clinics, and of course our races that are geared for all levels. We also have some very exciting opportunities on the horizon. A huge thanks to all of you for making another successful season happen.
Please take a moment to check out some of the changes we have made to the website.
We have posted a new Skijor101 Power point presentation (scroll down to the Skijor101 link below). We plan to add additional presentations.
We have also added some great information to the "member" area including creating the "MEMBER FORUM" in which to share a wealth of information for you and your dog. Some of the topics in the "Member Forum" are: Training, Equipment, Canine Health, Racing, Book and Video Resources, Improving your XC skiing, Feeding your Canine Companion, Traveling with Dogs, And much more !

Does your dog lose focus on the trail?
Does your dog lack enthusiasm when the harness comes out?
Does your dog have a slack tug line when you are skiing? Would you prefer to be in the Snug Tug Club ?
Does your dog stop and sniff things on the trail ?
Does your dog visit with other dogs on the trail rather than staying focused and passing them?
Are you wondering, aside from saying a command louder or again and again, how do train your dog a command
Is your dog chase dependent ? What to do about it to have freedom and independence to go when and where you want ?
Are you wondering, aside from saying on-by and hoping and praying, how are you going to ensure interference free passing.
Are you wondering how you know if your dog is ready for a race? What race? Why ?
We teach you how to solve these and many other issues. Join us for a training session and we will turn your frustrating runs into enjoyable outings for you and your pet. Classes are kept small in order to provide you with specialized one-on-one training.
If you are new to dog powered sports join us for a beginner training session (we provide the gear for the day). This is a great way to see if the Dryland and Skijoring sports venues are of interest to you and your canine pal.
