New Year Training in the Snow

Blizzard conditions shut down the kennel for a day of shoveling, plowing and trail breaking. But, after that we were up and after it. It is GREAT to have snow ~ seems like a new world for a new year!

Here is a video from yesterday's trading run:

The 4 legged team members seem thrilled to see the white stuff!!! and it so cool to see Scout just being "Mr. Cool" (he's so cool he doesn't need sunglasses)!!!

Love it! Hooray for snow. Kodia's tail wag was awesome. And LOL, Champ looking the wrong way. Gotta love confidence up front. The trail is absolutely beautiful!

Thank You Lord for bringing snow, so beautiful and even more so with the dogs. Now let it keep snowing and snowing and snowing. Thanks Aliy this was a video which brought smiles.

Love the training video! I am SO impressed by the way that you have such command over your dogs.....ie; when you told them to 'LINE UP', they knew just what to do. Just AWESOME. Happy mushing. Keep safe.
