Timber will be turning one year old this coming weekend. With his ongoing maturation, we've been taking him out for longer outings and hikes. This past weekend, he bagged nearby Mt. Watatic with no problem.
Howling Dog Alaska's Distance Harness, Skijoring Line and Trekking Belt combo package has been a new addition to our collective kit. Using this has been great for masters and canine alike.
The combo is particularly good at distributing the often sudden pulling force that Huskies can make when they really get into the flow. Handling them with a regular collar/leash on the trail can wear out your back and shoulders after a while. With the package, we don't feel so beaten up after a long hike. Plus the harness is better for the dog as well.
Overall, it's been a blast to further meld into the environment with our boy...
Then again, kicking back in front of the wood stove isn't too bad either.
