Kyleigh Harmony, the sled has a brake on it, and I don't intend to let it hit her in the butt! That would NOT be a good start! And I most certainly will NOT be going down hill!!!! That would be disastrous! (probably more for me than her!)

harmony I would not always let the sled/cart run into a dog to train it. I lead a dog that has to pull and they learn to go because it is fun . I am sure I have had mishaps with running into the back but, I would not do that to much with a GS.

Kyleigh LMAO ... the canal ???? Not likely ... I think we'd be kicked off in a heart beat!!!!

The pathways ... I will probably try it once we figure out how to get her to pull me (not run to me!)

I'm so excited ... it's the first time in my life I want snow!

Bear GSD How awesome is that! Ky looks like she's ready for the Iditarod. It looks like you're going to be having a lot of fun this winter

Muskeg Super fun! If you are near Ottawa, there is a fun group of folks who skijor and mush with small teams SkiDogs.Ca - SkiDogs.Ca. They welcome beginners and run a variety of dogs including GSDs and malinois.

It's best to get out there with a bunch of other dogs to chase or even hook up your dog with a seasoned veteran so she can "learn the ropes" from another dog.

A kicksled is a cheaper option if you want to sled it. There are lots of places you can buy one.

It's getting down to -10 to -20 here tonight and I just skijored the dogs about 16 miles. They love the cold, but it took my fingers about 45 minutes to thaw out once I got home.
