Finally get to relax (yeah right!)

Today, I got to ride in the sled while my wifes tood on the runners. I had to get out a lot to corect little mishaps. My young leaders don't really know any commands. But at least they stay on the trail most of the time. Its a bit of a dilema. I have a book where you can train a lead dog one on one over a four week period finally ending with him leading a team. I am doing things a little backwards, but I can't really justify letting all my dogs sit idle in the middle of the winter while I work for four weeks with only one or two dogs.
But the run went well, we shortened the root because of the added weight but they all pulled strongly and it was fun to be out with my wife.

Ah! Makes sense now. It's great to have an extra person so you can hop out and correct any mistakes. Good plan.

I love the view from that level!

Ted, loved reading your blog, I'm not much of a reader, and I don't have sled dogs, but your stories are interesting, and fun! I've learned things about dogs that I never knew before. Following your passions are important. Keep it up!
