Hello Dog Powered Sports Enthusiasts,

DPSAY was founded 10 years ago! Woot Woot!! 10 years of dog powered sport events, activities and fun, e.g. races, fundraisers, workshops and much more. The board would appreciate your feedback in order to find out, what the dog-loving community likes to do, and if there is anything what needs to be changed. It would be great, if you could take a few minutes to provide us with some feedback by taking the survey below.

Thank you so much!

We are looking forward to many ideas and constructive input.

Your DPSAY Board

Hello Dog Powered Sports Enthusiasts,

The dog sledding and skijoring season is clearly over!
The Dog Powered Sports Association of the Yukon sends out a big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped to make this another great season with the dogs!!
Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, members and participants!

For our sponsors please look at the image below!!
Everyone go and see them at their stores and show your gratitude. Without their generous support, we wouldn’t be able to have so much fun!

Stay tuned for what’s to come in the “Hot Hound” season!
Your DPSAY Board.

DPSAY Season Finale Results

March 23, 2017 Leave a comment

Hello DPSAY and Dog Lovers,

The season finale of the DPSAY Twister races at Muktuk Adventures was a great one; great weather, great trail, great food and great company. The temperature stayed nice and cool as the race was going on; all the while the sun lit the Takhini River to give racers a great view of its high banks. The trail was an out and back race with plenty of head on passing and tight groups of racers. Just as the participants of the Recreational Class were coming in, the temperature climbed the perfect amount to make lounging in the sun for the afternoon BBQ a delight.

Into the wild mushers Marine and Mathieu took home first and second place in the 10 mile sled event (We wonder who got to make up the teams?), while rookie racer Annika Wahlisch captured first in the 10 mile skijor category.

A big thank you to Manuela and the crew at Muktuk for hosting the event, feeding us and letting us take over their deck for the day. Thank you Mike Simon for another day of timing.

Prize Sponsors: Yukon Brewing, Yukon Quest
