Dirt Sled Training: Day 1

Up until this day, Cris and I would walk and run the kids every morning for 2 miles. As soon as they started working together during the run and when i couldn't keep up anymore we thought it was time for them to try running a dirt sled, So we gave Robin their foster mom and experienced dryland musher a call. As you would have guessed they were naturals. Mukki took the lead and keeps Tala in check most of the time, squirrels on the path pose a slight problem -more on that later. We averaged about 15 mph for the first 2 miles and about 9 mph for the whole 4 mile trip, not a bad start for a first time. We still have a lot of training to do both for the dogs and for us, but It was a blast and Tala and Mukki were so happy. We had so much fun that we forgot to take pictures of the event. The pups slept good that night.
