Don’t Ski, Skijor!

Posted by: admin | January 29, 2012 | Posted in Dog Training

The snow has a way of, well, bringing out the dog in your dog.  A dusting of white can turn even the best-behaved Rover into a jumping, twirling, digging, snow bather.  It can also make for an adventure skittering across the parking lot with an overly excited dog in tow.

Now you can make use of Spot’s inner sled dog with the rapidly growing sport of skijoring.  It is a combination of cross-country skiing and dog mushing where your dog uses a harness and tow line to pull you along a winter trail on skis.   Why skijor you ask?  Because…

  • Dogs absolutely love it.
  • Perfect for dog, ski, and nature lovers alike.
  • It requires minimal equipment and expense.
  • Any type of dog can do it.
  • It is a blast!

With minimal training and equipment you and your dog can feel the exhilaration of mushing across the Arctic tundra like the days of old.
