Skijoring is cross-country skiing while being pulled by your dog(s). It is a sport that originated in Scandinavia several hundred years ago and is quickly gaining popularity in the United States.
These beginning skijor clinics will focus on equipment, dog care, training, places to skijor, etc… Then the class will move outside to practice on the snow. During the outdoor portion of the class, time will be spent on getting dogs to pull and on learning “let’s go” /”hike”, “whoa”/stop, and “on by” commands. Attendees will also become familiar with how to handle the lines. Human participants must have intermediate cross-country skiing skills.
