Dog Ride

Last summer at the Iditarod Summer Camp for Teachers, we had the opportunity to stay at Vern Halter’s Dream A Dream Kennel.  As part of the experience, we all got a ride on the 4-wheeler being pulled by a team of dogs.  It was a wild ride with dogs raring to go.  Teachers worked together to hitch up a team – a skill we learned while at the camp.  As you watch the video, you can hear the dogs whining and barking with their tails wagging as they get ready to hit the trail.  As soon as they start running, all is silent.  We all had fun on our ride and came away with respect for dogs and handlers who want to share their sport.
