How to become a superhero

When you'll visit us, it is certain you will leave with one feeling at least : admiration.

Our dogs are the best colleagues in the world. Always happy to see people, passionate about their work, great team players... even when they have their little mood swings, one can only

be impressed by their speed, their quickness and their strength.

Little husky puppies are already buzzing with energy,

filled with curiosity and they love to play. 

Playing is a great way for them to learn how to behave and communicate 

between dogs. A pack is a social group that has its own interactions

and codes, beyond any part a human can play in it.

They even quarrel sometimes (for reasons that, honestly, only they know.)

Young dogs can start running mildly around 10 months old. However, they mustn't pull any weight before 1 year old. It is the age at which their skeleton is done consolidating.

If they start working before that, the risk of their angles getting askew is higher,

creating dysplasia among other things.

 

It is around that age that we can spot the dogs that eager to run, and those who are absolutely not interested !

They will stay with us until they get adopted and become house dogs.

Very frequently asked questions concern the spot each dog holds in the teams. There are different positions and each dog prefers one or the other.

Leaders : they are the front dogs on the first sled (in our case, your guide's sled). They lead the way and know how to turn. They answer commands to turn left ("haw") and right ("gee"). These words are used everywhere in the world..

Front dogs : the frist row in following sleds. They are highly motivated dogs that run reliably forward. Their job is to set the pace and give energy to the second and third rows.

Sleigh dogs : the two rows in the middle and at the back are those that give traction. They are the sled's power, its "engine". They are generally powerful dogs but not the quickest or liveliest. This is also the spot we will assign to a young dog getting started, to avoid him the stress of being in front.

​Here, the young Ringo (the left sleigh dog) is making his sled debut. He leaps more than he runs, he isn't in sync with the older dogs... he still needs a bit of practice !
