    With assisstance from my brother I've been working with Duke since the first snowfall to master sledding. While he still has quite awhile to go, he's really starting to get the fundamentals down. We've just been focusing on reinforcing the act of pulling right now before teaching on bay ( leave in/keep moving forwards) as well as turns (gee and haw). Over the holidays a few of my nephews and nieces even took a turn on a short run and really enjoyed themselfes.

    Duke now yips with excitment when he see's his sled harness pulled out so I know he's enjoying it as well.

    Anyways without further ado a few short vid clips and pics from todays short runs.

    Thanks:)

    Here's the first run again as the first link seems to be broken (note at the very end duke runs off with the sled without me after we hit a rough patch)

    Yay Duke! Baiting is a great way to teach a dog to pull! You should bring him down some time to hook him up with the boys :D

    That's way too fast, I was surprised.
    Duke really got the muscle, really lots of fun, hope he master sledding.
