June has been a very hot and sticky month in Somerset so the dogs have been having a bit of a break from training and have enjoyed attending local shows to raise money for charity and to give people an insight into what owning a Siberian Husky is like. Our pack is a mixture of shapes and sizes from pocket rocket Cassidy to gentle giant Hux and they all love meeting new people. We feel it is good experience for the dogs to meet different people and different breeds of dogs.
Continuing the education
As with owning any breed of dog we learn a new thing every day about the breed and our dogs and we enjoy learning everything we can. We are pleased to have picked these books up from Sally Leich who was the first person to work their siberian huskies in the UK some thirty years ago so excited about benefiting from her knowledge http://www.forstalsiberians.co.uk/
Along with several Alaskan Malamutes and other Siberian Huskies Kara Muffin attended an 'Enhance the health and performance of your Canine Athlete Seminar' to learn techniques on how to warm up and down your canine athlete before and after exercise, it was a really good day and we learnt lots of interesting info and techniques that we will add to our training, rally and show work.
