Canicross

Maliko (a good friend and fellow dog musher) and I have been working with the young dogs by canicross! Canicross involves tying an energetic sled pup to your waist and being pulled along, all the while taking care not to trip on tussocks or tundra. Besides being a blast, this is a great way to teach young dogs directional commands. Some dogs are more focused than others, but all pull so hard that I only last a short while before my knees need a break! Fire and Kindi are modeling the technique in the pictures below.
