During this week you will stay at our logcabin right next to the dogkennel. After a long day’s work and a good meal you can enjoy a sauna.
We will teach you the basics of driving dogteams and training dogs. We’ll go out on dogsleds every day, stopping for lunch at a fire. This will help learning the dogs to relax during these stopovers, which is an important part of the tours later in season. We use small teams of 4-6 dogs, so as to train as many lead dogs as possible. We drive up to 30 km a day.
We will be out on an overnight trip, where we will stay at a cabin. The goal is to train the dogs to sleep on a stake-out line and let them get used to the routines again.
Next to the dogtraining we’ll spend time preparing for the winter season: getting the sleds ready, preparing tracks with the snowmobile, prepare cabins and many other chores that need to be done.
