Name: Barbara Schaefer
Hometown: Grass Valley, CA
Will mentor by: e-mail, phone and in person
Will mentor in: distance, recreation, sprint and general
E-mail address: qualobo@hotmail.com
Phone: 530-273-4894
Experience: I love sharing my enthusiasm and passion for working with Siberian Huskies. I suffered a serious head injury in early 1997 and my dogs brought me back to life. I enjoy teaching experientially so I prefer mentoring in person, although emails and phone are a good way to connect initially. I am known for my mentoring of teenagers in “Life through Dogs”, teaching them about life while learning about dog sledding.

I've been running my dogs since getting my first Siberian Husky in 1987, at first I primarily showed my dogs in obedience and confirmation. In Fall of 1998 I attended Jamie Nelson & Ann Stead's Mushing Boot Camp and I was propelled into the world of sled dog racing. I started racing in 6 & 8 dog sprint, then 6 dog “CA mid-distance” (two 15-20 mile heats), and in recent years I have been training for more traditional mid-distance races of 100+ miles continuous.

I'm a past Sierra Nevada Dog Drivers vice-president and current Board Member and a main instructor for SNDD's annual Introduction to Mushing Clinic.

I am also known as Barb “Dog Drop”, a nickname I earned for my outstanding care of dropped dogs on the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race where I volunteered for 10 consecutive races in remote checkpoints caring for dropped dogs. My team of Siberian Huskies and I have earned numerous awards including the Siberian Husky Club of America Working/Showing Trophy in 2000, 2001, & 2002 and the ISDRA 6 dog to Unlimited Gold Medal in 2005 & 2002 and Silver Medal in 2003.
