Skijoring

Skijoring is a great way to go when you only have one or two dogs! 
The dog pulls you with a special harness and line while you follow behind on skis.

On By! It's helpful to follow behind
a team to get started.

"Skiing behind your dog in harness is the perfect winter activity if you like to ski and your dog likes to run. With a pair of skis, a little bit of extra equipment and a dog that likes to pull, you have everything you need to enjoy a snowy winter trail. Skijoring allows you to experience the speed and pleasure of dog mushing on a smaller, more economical scale. Almost anyone - of an age - can learn how to skijor." Skijor With Your Dog, by Mari H¯e-Raitto & Carol Kaynor, 1991.


Always make sure to hold onto the line when taking off.
If you don't you end up on the ground. Here Jess
is running two dogs, Rangeley & Cheena.
