its so much fun im surprised its still legal!!!
there is loads of info on the net if you look hard enough search bikejoring, skijoring, sled dog traning, summer training.
The main points i have focused on is "HAVE FUN" and dont expect to much from your dogs to soon.
saying that with in the first month the boys picked it up so well, and only doing it for 2 months we have the basics down pat, that little film was a 10km round trip that took us around 1 1/2 hours (including our stops at the dog park and for a swim)
they understand go well i use "off ya go" and "come one" just because they are commands i use naturally and the dogs already understood, "Hike" is also something im slowly introducing as its the proper mushing term
stop is "wooahh" and after applying the brakes on the bike the picked it up fairly quick
left "haw" and right "Gee" we are still working on these but i fell these will take some time to master.
im from SA so i got in contact with the SA Sled dog club, they were very welcoming even though i dont have huskys it dident matter
i went to an event just to watch and they convinced me to borrow some harnesses and have a go. lets just say even though the boys were running all over the place and not listing to me it was a blast and i was hooked.
There is a lady in the club who sells all the gear, she test fitted some harnesses for my boys, lucky they fit Siberian husky harnesses no worries, so i did not have to get custom ones made up.
i got two harnesses size 3 and 4 a bungy tow line and a neck line for $110 and its the best money i have ever spent! me and the lads head out at least 2 times a week and just go exploring.
i already had the bike
