Cascade Sled Dog Club Pull Clinic September 17th 2011 Estacada Oregon

Kim Tinker Skijoring With Her Alaskan Huskies


At the Cascade Sled Dog Club’s Pull Training Clinic you will spend a fun and informative day learning the basic skills needed to prepare you and your dog for dog-powered sports.  When you arrive at the clinic we will fit your dog with a harness and other training gear.  Experienced mushers will teach a series of skills to help your dog learn how to pull consistently and on command through positive reinforcement.  During the lunch break, mushers will present mini-lectures on training and health tips for dogs working in harness.  The clinic concludes with participants and their dogs trying out the sport of dog scootering!  

Please fill out and mail the below portion of the form along with your entry fee.  Enrollment is for one dog and one person.  We look forward to seeing you and your dog!
