Hot Hounds and First Mate Freight Pull at Gatt Kennels


It was a great turnout at Sundays race with dogs and drivers enjoying the great trails and beautiful weather at Gatt kennels in Golden Horn.

In the freight pull events Jonathan’s two Rottweiler Asha and Puck placed 1st and 2nd in the medium weight category and took 5 bags of First Mate Extreme dog food home while Adam Robinson’s dog Toad placed first in the light weight category winning 3 bags of dog food.

The mass start for the one mile category was a fun event as usual and saw Cynthia Corriveau with Foxy beating Fabian Schmitz with Appleton to second place.

Some participants showed that proper running gear is totally overrated. Adam Robinson ran shirtless to first place in the canicross category and Katherine Scheck in jeans and crocs was only 5 seconds slower.

The two mile two dog race was a fun trail with some exciting corners and ups and downs and Cynthia Corriveau placed first again with Stefan Wackerhagen coming in second.

This event was sponsored by First Mate Extreme Dog Food, Yukon Brewing, Aurora Booties and Coast Mountain Sports.

Thanks a lot to Hans & Susie for hosting the race and to Jonathan Lucas for organizing the Freight Pull!
