Dog Mushing Symposium

In Fairbanks yesterday, Aliy and Allen were featured at the Alaska Dog Mushers Association (ADMA) symposium. Their presentation focused on a year in the life of a sled dog.

They stepped through the year running from September through to August. The audience was small but enthusiastic and enjoyed learning from such experienced and successful mushers.

Later in the programme Aliy participated in an expert panel called "Mushing 101" along with fellow long distance musher Jodi Bailey and sprint musher Greg Selletin, who is also the editor of Mushing Magazine. Questions ranged from basic dog training to advanced race strategy.

Community outreach like this is an important part of the SP Kennel culture, a great opportunity for Aliy and Allen to share their love of Alaskan husky sled dogs with fellow mushers throughout the spectrum of ability and experience.
