AIREDALE SLED DOGS! WOO HOOO!

We live too far south for sledding and Mom and Dad don't do a whole lotta physical activities, but lotsa Dales and their hoomans do.Here are some photos of friends who are in a team of Dryland Sled Dogs. We thought you might enjoy seeing how these working dogs do their jobs!

This article is from: The Plain Dealer,


"Sally Dawson of Burton spends a little time with each of her purebred airedales before competing in the Adult Scooter 2-dog Speed Class in the fifth annual Lake Farmpark Dryland Sled Dog Challenge on Sunday, November 20, 2011. The warm weather forced organizers begin some races nearly two hours early, at when the weather was a bit cooler to protect the health of the dogs, who are trained to run in cold, snowy conditions. Recreational classes were cancelled on Sunday for the same reason. The event included bikejoring, or racing on bikes with dogs, scooter and cart racing, and canicross, or running behind the dogs. It was held Saturday and Sunday at the metropark in Kirtland. (Lynn Ischay/The Plain Dealer)"
