Experience:
Sled dogs isn't just a hobby or a recreation.  Its a way of life, it is life. Without it how can we breathe, eat, sleep.  I mean, why work if you're not using that money to feed and clothe the dogs?  We run Alaskan Huskies, have for about ten years (in this life). We train/race for mid-distance, place respectably, and always know where our lead dogs are going to take us.

Experience: I just relocated to Seattle after 9 years in Alaska. I'm currently living the city life, but I miss having sled dogs!

I have been carting and sledding with Samoyeds for over six years in the 6-dog sprint and mid-distance races and excursion runs. We have been doing other aspects of working as well for over 20 years in Weight Pulling, Herding and Agility. Most recently been excited about dogscootering.The only dumb questions are the ones not asked. So please ask anything you wish and we will try to answer you or send you to someone who can.

Experience:
I've been running dogs since 1998. I run a team of Alaskan Malamutes. We’ve done weight pulls in the past but now we primarily do a few Mid Distance races a year and operate a sled dog rides/tours business. Happy to run with anyone…newcomers, veterans, etc. I look at things as if we always have something to learn. We camp with our dogs in the fall and winter. We don’t win any races but we always finish strong and have a fun time out on the trail

Experience:
I am a junior musher and have actually been involved in the sport for nine years, ever since we moved to a place cold enough. But only during the last 3-4 years have I gotten really "serious". I'm sixteen and open to share stories, tips, and answer general questions. My breeds are the Alaskan Husky and "pound found hound".

Experience:
Hi, I would be glad to help any folks that want to "learn." I have been running sleddogs for 20 yrs. I have weight pulled dogs and trained them as a team. I posses 2 international medals and over 20 regional medals and my dogs held records for years. I have been running Alaskans for 10 yrs now and dwell primarily on distance type training. I am the cart king! I can ride like no one else I know. I like carts the best. Takes more control training but the results are quite rewarding, not to mention the variety of areas it opens your riding up to. The name of the game is to have fun. Well trained dogs have the most fun!! Jim Welsh once said "there is no better feeling than riding on a fast well trained and conditioned team. A privilege few will ever get to know". It is a feeling I know well. You can too!
