Nordic dog team at Speed Dog Race, Plateau de Retord, Cuvéry, Ain, France

 

A race organized by the FFST, the federation that brings together mushers with all kinds of dogs, purebred, Nordic type, hunting dogs or cross dogs such as Alaskans.

The main one is their ability to run fast.

Calm, cute and a world class dog smile . . .

.... outside the Zephyr Cafe in Squamish. Only the really big piles of snow are left now.

Thanks for viewing.

Sled dog race

 

Alaskan Malamutes at Retordica, Plateau de Retord, Cuvéry, Ain, France

 

For more than 25 years, an international dog sled race has been taking place in the wilderness of Plateau de Retord. Many mushers love this site to train their teams throughout the winter.

The sled dog racing is subdivided into several categories according to the number of dogs harnessed and in three subcategories according to the breed of dogs harnessed.

Indeed, the faster Siberian Husky compete in a separate category, the other three breeds : Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed and Greenland dog run in the same category, while the so-called "Nordic type" dogs participate in their own category.

Hi there....

Ground level view . .

Take a walk on the wild side . . .

This sport takes back ancestral traditions which allowed the Inuits to survive in the big Arctic deserts and represent the link with the nature.

 

Fast, exciting, well trained sled dog teams are the result of careful behind the scenes planning and hard work. Successful mushers are knowledgeable in such diverse areas as kennel management, canine behavior, nutrition, veterinary care, psychology, physical conditioning, housing and transportation. Wise mushers soon learn that success or failure in any of these areas affects performance dramatically. Considering this fact it is obvious that the welfare of the dogs is of paramount importance.

Team and driver develop a close, trusting relationship because of the amount of time they spend together. To betray that trust by not meeting all of the dog’s needs runs counter to the goal of having a happy, healthy, highly motivated team.

 

What you see at a race is the result of long hours of work and planning to ensure that the team is prepared to test its abilities against the trail and the competition.

We tend to think of ourselves as superior to other animals... but in many ways the opposite is true. . . .

Bug is an Australian Cattle dog cross that came from an Idaho cattle ranch as a pup. She has turned out to be a real handful, but we love her.
