Alaskan Sled
Dog School

 

 

 

Learn everything from sled handling to racing in the Iditarod from Iditarod veteran musher Bill Cotter.

 

Beginner mushers will learn how to feed, care and harness dogs plus the art of sled handling and manoeuvering.  They will mush their own team each day. 

 

Intermediate mushers will learn everything about racing.  Care and feeding in races, camping, medical care of dogs, booties - when and how to use, race strategies and running test schedules.  They can also lease a team and run a qualifying race.  Once they qualify they can then run the Iditarod or Yukon Quest.
