Due to conic knee injuries suffered from over the years of athletic activities, caused me to rethink my continued racing activities in Mid/Long Distance racing. I felt that my ability to safely look after my dogs in these events was questionable. I never want to put the health and safety of my dogs in jeopardy for my pursuit of personal desires.
So, I was faced with a decision on either quite mushing or reinvent the type of races I wished to participate in.
After participating in an Open Class Sprint Race for fun here in Saint Michel, I decided to convert my kennel to Sprint Dogs.
The above photos of of my team of Distance Dogs competing in my first Sprint Race. I even used my distance sled for this event.
I truly enjoyed the experience and had fun.
Thanks to a new found friend (Rosaire Perron) who gave me to of his sprint dogs for breeding, I commenced on a five year program to produce a competitive Open Class Sprint Racing Kennel .
And so a new adventure with Sled Dogs began!
Until next week......
