Kicksledding Team???

After Brodie’s learn to pull class last weekend, I had planned to take the dogs out this weekend and introduce Brodie to a kicksled and then if things went well, connect them to the kicksled as a team.  Mother Nature actually cooperated and gave us a good dump of snow yesterday, so rather than pulling the sled on grass they got to work in the snow with me riding and kicking behind them.  We didn’t get much speed or distance but it was a decent first effort.

Intro to Pulling

Pull1A
Yesterday Brodie and I took a dry land pulling clinic at the Nordic Ski Club in Fort Saskatchewan.  Dogs with any kind of obedience training have a hard time transitioning to pulling while in harness and he was no exception.  We did manage to get him to pull me on the scooter a few times.  My hope is that he will like this pulling game so that he can join Spirit and I kick sledding this winter.  Thanks to Marc Debrule for the great pix.
