  1. New to the show love it need some advice on training for pulling I own 8 huskys and it’s not going good with the training they want to play all the time any help would be appreciated thank you from the Williams pack

    • Hi Richard,

      Robert here. I would start out with just one or two dogs on a bike first and make sure that they not only learn what it means to pull but also have a great time doing it. Trying to train eight dogs at once is just way too many parts of the puzzle trying to fit together at once. Once the dogs are learning how to pull you on your bike then you can start adding in commands for left, right, go, stop and take a break.

      One of the most important things you must learn in mushing is patience and knowing that if the dogs do not want to go you are not going to go anywhere.

  2. Hi Richard! Thank you for tuning in to the show! Thanks Robert, for sharing your expertise and replying with such great info. Richard, I hope you join us again!
