Cold nights and warm sunny days.
The dogs are all doing great with their conditioning/ training program.
This week, we slowly increased the speed on the runs.
Also at the end of this week, we ran two days consecutively for the first time this season.
Up to then, we were running on a schedule of one day run and then one day rest.
The dogs handled the two days running without any problem or fatigue.
One of the dogs in the second team (Pippin) was not pulling well as compared to last Winter.
After some analysis, it was decided the the Fall Training Harness was too tight and restricting his breathing. So, we went to the Winter Harness that fits differently allowing no restriction to the rib cage.
Problem fixed and he is running much better now.
Last week Suvi, from Finland, arrived on the 20th of October to spend the season here learning about Sled Dogs and our way of training/conditioning here at Miortuk.
Welcome to the Miortuk Team Suvi!
Until next week.......
