In this album we’ll publish photos from our two pups’ first season in harness. Lyra and Hilary went on their premiere run on a small team in February 2012, at 6 months of age, and did really well! Click on the photos to see larger versions. Most likely there will be a lot of “butt shots” in this album
Please note that we do not recommend starting puppies at longer distances or training them for speed or to pull weights. The focus of our training is to get our puppies used to the lines, the sled, the skis, and the commands. We only let them run tiny distances at this young age and we strive to keep them at a steady trot – which is the natural gait for Malamutes. Puppy training should be short, safe, fun and easy!
