with the dogs
Meeting the huskies is always a fun and magical moment, for kids and grown-ups alike. It’s an emotional experience. The main thing you need to learn is to interpret the dogs’ general behavior; how to greet them, approach them, respect them, etc. For this trapper evening, take your time choosing your walking companion, because you’ll need to take care of them for the whole trip. Just like with humans, you can have an affinity with an animal. Don’t hesitate to ask Barbara for details on their different character traits!
what is it?
Cani-rando is hiking with a sled dog; a long elasticated cord connects the hiker to their companion. This makes going uphill easier and enables you to work in synergy with the animal. Huskies have energy to spare, but your snowshoe outing is not a race! After learning some simple commands (left, right, slowly, forwards, etc.) you’ll be ready to set off.
