Buc starting out with fresh dogs. Not much control here. Just don’t let go!

This is a very fun sport and a great way to exercise the dogs. Kira had never been in a harness until last month, but is a natural at the sport. Kodi’s been skijoring as a single dog for years, and isn’t really used to pulling with a team. He’s extremely strong when he’s on his game, but he seems to tire more quickly and gets out of pace with the other dogs. I can see how difficult it must be for the top mushers to find dogs that pull well together. I hope we get to do more of it this winter, but I’m not ready to get a sled and more dogs, yet…
