You have a very active dog, they want…no, need to be busy. But, if you live in Presque Isle, Maine the idea of trudging out in the snow all winter (to make your dog happy) might not be all that enticing to you when the snow and cold blow in.
However, they don’t take no for an answer, so you’ve got to figure something out. You want the best for your dog, and that means keeping them busy – and more importantly out of trouble.
As much fun as it might be to have a full team of sled dogs to power you down the trail after work, for most American and Canadian dog owners that’s just not going to be a reality. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with mushing sports…and your Aussie can have fun too!
Small teams sport are very accessible for us city folk. If you have one or two dogs, hooking them up to yourself and letting them provide some power to your cross country ski routine can add an instant dopamine kick!
Just imagine flying down the trail with your dog, their ears flapping in the wind, tongue out. And, both of your smiling ear to ear.
You don’t have to settle for imagining, it can be your reality.
An enthusiastic partner, a set of cross country skis, and a few mushing basics and you’re on your way!
