Night Running with the Dogs

We’ve heard that sled dogs run the best at night so we decided to try it out. With a warmer than usual January, we made an evening out of it – grilling out and dog sledding into the night. And sure enough, as the sun went down, the energy level went up! After running two teams of four for a while, my husband hooked all eight dogs up (for the first time) and he ran them on a 2.5 mile loop. The eight dogs still averaged between 8-16mph but with all of them pulling, hills were effortless. My husband described it simply as, “Energizing.”
