It was a very fast and furry month for us and our malamute Taiga: 3 dryland bikejoring sprint races, plenty of training and lots of lessons to learn.
“Lets start training in order to ensure that the great accomplishments of our beloved breed won’t become a thing of the past!”, Svein Tore Bøe (Najanin)
So you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to get fit this year… And maybe, by some miracle, you have an Alaskan Malamute at your home? Then you are saved!
Winter is coming. Well, it came and already left. But we didn’t waste our time – spend incredible weekends on snow and sleds with Taiga’s friends.
Climate change is real. Instead of usual heavy snow this year we get only positive temperatures, constant rain and muddy trails. There’s nothing else left but bikejoring with Taiga through the winter every time the tracks dry out.
Finally, we’ve got snow! Well, 5 millimetres of it, so it’s still not enough for sledding, thus we’ve had our first carting training in a three wheeled rig during the weekend.
Training a Malamute to howl at emergency sirens is easy – just find an annoying siren on youtube and turn the volume up. But do that with caution!
