SKIJORING: Dog + Ski’s = F U N

March 10, 2010

Skijoring can make almost anyone love winter! It just takes a few simple steps and you can be on your way to another fun outdoor winter activity.

You only need a few things.

1) A dog (or dogs) that is willing to pull or can  be trained

2) A skijor belt

3) A dog harness (photo on left)

4) A tugline

The skijor belt and tugline can be purchased or handmade. Part of the tugline attachment to the belt should be made out of bungy material.  You can also teach your dog commands for right, left, slow, stop and go. We haven’t gotten quite that advanced this year, but I know we are both having a great time!
