Valley Snow Dogz and Team Uktousa !
Some upcoming stars on team Uktousa this year and some newbies in harness. We are counting down to our first runs in harness which typically start during the first week of September. Gunsmoke from Brenda Mackey in AK will be a great addition to our team, as he was last winter and we also welcome the arrival B'Zhoo later this week, from our dear friend Linda Newman, from Points Unknown in MN . He is sibling to our Miss Squish. We have quite a few young dogs in training this year.... Tuliq now just over a year old along with Miss Squish who ran in harness for part of last winter, then we have Bindhi who is currently 9 months old and will have her first experience on the team this September. Dougie and White Feather are now two years old and this will be their second season. White Feather already showed great leader potential last year taking lead on numerous occasions while her brother Dougie really enjoys being close to me or Richard however, he has evolved a lot this summer with his confidence, he's such a devoted dog. We have started some leader training and next we will be working on line-out and a few of the commands which we use during our running season. It's great to introduce the young ones to these before they are on the team.
