We have discovered a great sport that we can enjoy with our Icelandic Sheepdogs.

Dog Scootering!  (a form of Dryland Mushing)     and    Micro Mushing!    (Mushing with 1 to 3 dogs)

Help has arrived to advance our sleddog skills.  Meet Chilli & Milan, and Caesar.
We will be teaching our Dogs the following Commands for Scootering:

Hike:  Go Forward
Whooooa:  Come to a Smooth Stop
Gee:  Turn Right
Haw:  Turn Left
This Way:  Go in the Direction the Scooter is Pointing
On By:  Go on by a Distraction
Line Out:  Stand Still with the Tug-Line Taut, Facing Forward
Easy:  Go Slower
Hup Hup:  Go Faster

Commands we'll work on learning as we progress...

Gee Back:  Come Back Towards Me to the Right
Haw Back:  Come Back Towards Me to the Leftt
Gee Over:  Steer to the Right-Hand side of the Trail, Road, etc.
Haw Over:  Steer to the Left-Hand side of the Trail, Road, etc.
Trot:  Trot instead of Lope
