As many of you know, we suffered a house fire at the
beginning of the this year.  Dogs and humans are all fine,
but we did lose everything.  We are currently rebuilding,
and we look forward to getting life back on track by the
end of the year.
Words cannot express our sincere appreciation for
everyone's support and well wishes.  We couldn't get
through this difficult time without you!
So bear with us if you don't hear back from us right
away.  We have a lot going on right now, but we look
forward to working with you!       

Missy, Dave, Jon, Ian and our furry crew

I've always had a love affair with animals, especially dogs.  I
was smitten with Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes.  
In the very early 90's, I was given the opportunity to take a
ride on a sled team.  It was an instant love affair.  There was
nothing better than harnessing up my team and going for a
run with my furry dogs.  It was at a dog sled race that I was
introduced to weight pulling.  
Our first event was in Lake George, NY.  My malamute,
Brownie, was entered in novice.  We sat along side the
frozen lake for hours before his class was up.  Nervous, I
hooked him up, and ran across the line.  Calling his name, he
looked away from me.  My heart sank.  Then he sprung to
life hauling the weighted sled down to the finish line.  I don't
remember where he placed that day, nor does it really
matter.  I just remember that exhilarated feeling of
accomplishment of dog and human working together.  Who
knew that this event was just the beginning of life destined
to "go to the dogs".  And that is exactly what happened.  My
life went to the dogs.  There is not one aspect of my life that
is not touched by a dog in some way.  My love of the
northern breed has expanded to include Saint Bernards,
Presa Canarios, Pit bulls, American Bulldogs, and Staffie
bulls to name a few.  And dog sports include more than just
dog sledding and weight pulling.     And what is the goal of
all of this.  Of course, it is a way to make a living and
support my "dog habit".   But it is so much more than that to
me.  I want everyone to experience that moment that I did.  
That moment when they connect with their dog on a
deeper level, and create a working relationship.  
So "Come", "Sit", "Stay",
and enjoy your dog the way I enjoy mine.
