I've always had a love affair with animals, especially
dogs. I was smitten with Siberian Huskies and Alaskan
Malamutes. In the very early 90's, I was given the
opportunity to take a ride on a sled team. It was an
instant love affair. There was nothing better than
harnessing up my team and going for a run with my furry
dogs. It was at a dog sled race that I was introduced to
weight pulling.
Our first event was in Lake George, NY. My malamute,
Brownie, was entered in novice. We sat along side the
frozen lake for hours before his class was up. Nervous,
I hooked him up, and ran across the line. Calling his
name, he looked away from me. My heart sank. Then
he sprung to life hauling the weighted sled down to the
finish line. I don't remember where he placed that day,
nor does it really matter. I just remember that
exhilarated feeling of accomplishment of dog and human
working together. Who knew that this event was just
the beginning of life destined to "go to the dogs". And
that is exactly what happened. My life went to the
dogs. There is not one aspect of my life that is not
touched by a dog in some way. My love of the northern
breed has expanded to include Saint Bernards, Presa
Canarios, Pit bulls, American Bulldogs, and Staffie bulls
to name a few. And dog sports include more than just
dog sledding and weight pulling. My dogs are my life.
I started this business not only to support my "dog habit", but I want everyone to experience that moment
that I did. That moment when they connect with their
dog on a deeper level, and create a working
relationship.
So "Come", "Sit", "Stay",
and enjoy your dog the way I enjoy mine.
