Sled Dog Care Guidelines


3rd Edition Mush with PRIDE Guidelines - 2009

The rain has turned to snow this morning, and the last golden birch leaves are swirling through the air. It is the beginning of a new mushing year in the North, and Mush with P.R.I.D.E. presents these guidelines as its first tangible accomplishment. With open minds, we are exploring new trails, searching for new information on the horizon, and at the same time covering old ground, tried and true.

We recognize that mushing is an evolving sport, practiced by people of many cultures and lifestyles. We realize that there are many ways to care well for sled dogs, and we do not wish to stifle the creativity or energy of any musher. These guidelines are offered as a sharing of information, based on over 200 mushers' accumulated experience, and they represent Mush with P.R.I.D.E.'s first attempt to share information on desirable practices for good sled dog care.

The pages have wide margins to allow space for your notes. You may also wish to keep these pages in a three-ring binder, as we plan to update the material as necessary. Please share your new ideas and information with us.

May your dogs be healthy and happy and your trails smooth and sunny.
