A Day With The Dogs…

One of our near by neighbors operates a Dog Sled ride company named Peace Pups  www.peacepupsdogsledding.com/and we went for a cart ride one day along with Kathy’s sister Nancy and her partner Ridge while they were here for a visit from California.

The carts weigh around 450 lbs and are used for fall training so they will be in shape for the snow season. Once we arrived and the harness was brought out the dogs got very excited about the job they were about to do…The link to the video will let you see how happy they are to have a job that they love to do…

The day we went for our ride the temp was around 62 degrees which is as warm as Ken, the owner, will let the dogs work out. He did give them a cool down as we traveled through a wet spot on the trail. Pair by pair they stopped to wallow in the cool water and mud.

Each of the carts had a team of ten dogs although the snow sleds only use eight dogs.

It was a great experience and we are considering booking a ride for snow season…
