I took a time lapse video of our hookup and unhook with our 6th harness run of the 2013-2014 season. I’m really loving this new feature on my camera. It starts with getting the equipment set up, dogs out of the yard, harnessing, hookup, and take off.
I believe in efficiency to save work and time. With only myself and no handlers, you can only tape your runs to see how the dogs actually ran and your musher performance.
This wasn’t the most perfect hookup we’ve had. Some of my current limitations are bitches in heat, three crazy veterans that need more hookups and mileage, and four yearlings on this team of twelve.
I set up the camera in the kennel yesterday just for fun to see what some of the dogs are doing when I’m not around. It’s a three hour period with shots taken every five seconds. They get moving at 3:00, maybe a squirrel?
Chuck Gould from Kiwatchi Kennels gave me permission to post his dog house design.
Here is a quick one-two version on how to build the picnic table concept dog house. I’ll be making a more detailed and longer version very soon!
