Advises from the Pros on… designing a dog training program!
Are you wondering when to start, how often to run your dogs, over what distance and when to train your dog team? If so, come and listen to fellow long distance, mid-distance and sprint mushers on what works for them.
Come online, on Zoom, on Thursday Dec 17th 2020, 6:30pm
Temperatures dropped and training started full-time for most of you by now. This season like no other before we have a big challenge ahead of us, organizing a long distance race, the Yukon Journey 450, here in the Yukon, therefore we need the support of our mushing community!
DPSAY is working relentlessly and each one of you can help by buying a $15 membership. We are doing funding applications and it is critical to show that we have members. Please do not hesitate, renew your membership now rather than waiting for the first race. Even if you do not race, it means a lot to the reputation of our club if you would sign up as a DPSAY member, to signal your support for what we do and help us with our vision: races organized by mushers for mushers! We need you!
For those of you, that prefer paper form renewing of the membership send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the reference membership 2020/2021 and we will send you the form that you can print/fill out online, sign and send back to us.
Have fun out on the training trail and stay tuned for more big updates soon!
