We started a new trick today “send it” eventually they will run across the yard for the cone. Rogue and Bat caught on the quickest, Rocket doesn’t like organized training as much and gets distracted easily, he isn’t motivated for much so I’m still trying to find rewards, tonight though they had to work for their entire dinner.
Yesterday was a big day for Yeo, he got to mush by himself with me on the scooter for the first time. 💕 It was amazing to see his excitement and natural instincts to pull and work hard 💪
A pic for our archives and one I'm proud of and want to share. Our friend of a few yrs (the lady on the bike) sent this pic to us in the mail. Those 2 dogs, Jep and Kusko were 2 of our former boys here at our kennel. They went to live with our friend in Michigan back in the Spring to help her small growing kennel. This is from their first race a few weeks ago where they did a 2 day race and placed 3rd overall out of 13 others!! I get weekly updates that Jep (black dog) is becoming quite the command leader! So, so proud of these 3, I could just cry happy tears!! #kuskosfacetho #drylandmushing #drylandracing
Ducky you are so handsome ❤️
Merlin, Willow, Jack and Lily relaxing today. Hard life for a sled dog in their off season 😎
Dagens höjdpunkt, träna med Ned 👌🏻❣. Cyklade en liten sväng med minstingen också, och lyckades flyga över styret. Är det fler än jag som alltid ramlar? 😅. (Svara inte föresten, misstänker svaret 🙈). Ska klä mig i bubbelplast nästa gång, den här kroppen är inte 20 längre tyvärr 😆👵🏻💁🏼 #kickbike #siberianhusky #mrkoppel #barmarksdrag #drylandmushing
I'm so proud of these leaders of mine! 😍 Such different personalities and strengths on my little team but they work together so well. They're like 4 puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. And they're all my favorite ❤
Teaching baylee to dry land mush!
Albert and Victoria accessorizing. Temporarily. Albert kicked all his booties before the run even began, and Victoria lost all but one by about 4 miles in. Thankfully we had two kids with us who were able to retrieve them all.
I didn’t see any reason for Albert to wear his jacket, but Victoria has very short fur and not much excess body fat to speak of so she got to try hers out all weekend. She didn’t seem to notice it while running, and it certainly didn’t slow her down any. This was actually her best run yet. It probably didn’t hurt that she found it a lot harder to turn in her harness and make tangles with her jacket on and a belly band from Alpine Outfitters keeping her harness in place.
Overall they both did great, and so did the other dogs they ran with.

Unser Start in Mühlberg bei der Deutschen Meisterschaft. 500 Meter später hab ich mit den Knien gebremst, weil ich beim Bein wechseln neben den Scooter getreten habe.
Der Scooter war nur geliehen und auch dort zum ersten Mal benutzt... war nicht ganz so pfiffig. Durch den Sturz sind uns zwar einige Sekunden flöten gegangen, aber Fly hat trotz gefühlten 50kmh Gegenwind, Steigungen und Matsch einen super Lauf hingezaubert. Sodass wir am Ende mit 11:52 auf 4.3 km sogar ganz passabel den 5. Platz in der Gesamtwertung und den 2. Platz in unserer Altersklasse gemacht haben.
Das stimmt mich natürlich mächtig stolz und leider wurde der 2. Renntag abgesagt, da die Strecke nicht mehr sicher befahrbar war. Hätte unsere Zeit gerne mal ohne Sturz gehabt und ohne Trailschranke (2 nebeneinander fahrende Teams, wo eine die andere hat nicht überholen lassen). Aber ich bin meeeega zufrieden.
Jetzt warte ich noch auf unser neues Geschirr von @sledwork.de
, welches wir uns am Samstag ausgesucht haben, was es aber leider nicht in der passenden Größe gab. Weihnachten kann kommen ♡

Just trotting along the top of the ridge. Just as we got home it started snowing ❄️ I know it won’t stick but it still makes us excited! This is where we are happiest; out alone on our adventures.
Had a great morning's training this morning with the dogs in the Phoenix Park.
Worked on hills with Lady and Dyson on the bike and scooter, then took Alpha for a nice little #canicross
run afterwards. .
Then, I got a mad idea in my head and decided to try Lady and Dyson on the #scooter
Well, what can I say...Dyson ran an absolute blinder for most of it (Lady always does!)! I took them up hills, down hills, past deer and through forests. Not a bother to them! I barely had to scoot with the 2 of them!! It was amazing!!! The power from the 2 of them!! 😯
If only Dyson were consistent with his runs!! 😂
Home now, in my pj's, having a nice hot bowl of seafood chowder. Think I've earned it after doing 25k! 😁
I apologize that I have not been posting many stories and adventure pics lately. This video may explain our absence. It is simply really difficult and mostly unsafe to try and capture video during mushing. This clip was set up after we completed our run, towards the beginning of the trail. I went and put Yuka in the car, road down the path to set up my phone and hit record, road back to my car to get Yuka and blasted off down the path to get this clip, then turned around shortly after cause Yuka already had her exercise. Anyone out there have a #GoPro
that they want to get rid of?! So spendy...Anyways thanks for sticking with us even though our post activity is a little lighter. 🐕🚲💨🐕🚲💨🐕🚲💨

Skipped class to utilize the few daylight hours we get. My hands were numb and the air stung on my skin, but I couldn’t have been happier and the feeling seemed to be unanimous though out the team!
TBT Shadow. 25 years ago this girl had me doing dry land sports before I knew they were a thing. All 40 lbs of pulling power. I miss my toothpaste stealing girl 💕 #drylandmushing #imissmydog
More clips from Millie’s point of view on @pet_owned
‘s helmet cam. Millie and Nell where both really amped today. Just 2 miles, but I really had to ride the brakes with Nell. Weight pull practice is clearly helping her get the idea. When ever I told her to dig in she did. I didn’t have to help on any of the little hills, or the deep bark mulch that normally bogs her down. Just gave her a couple Huphups and let her rip. 😁🐶🌸🐾. #akbash #drylandmushing #kickbike
