The Speed Mushing Manual: How to Train Racing Sled Dogs Reviews
I have an Alaskan husky and malinois I train for skijoring and thought this book would be useful. I found much of it to be helpful- training distance and speed recommendations, puppy raising, feeding, choosing a dog, injury treatment and prevention, and race day preparation were all good. There are some beautiful pictures of old-school sprint dogs that I like so much better than the new pointer mixes everyone uses these days.
I bought this as a gift for my son-in-law who recently bought a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog pup that he wants to train to pull a sled or a wagon when the dog is older. I believe that the information in this book will be quite useful when the time is right.
Absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much. The book is in excellent condition and it arrived right at the beginning of the due date period for when it'd be delivered. I'm so happy with this, and I'm already learning a lot from the book. Already in Chapter 2 in less than an hour. Love it! Thank you every so much for giving the opportunity to pass this book on to someone. I truly appreciate it.
Jim Welch has made this such an easy read and understandable to even none mushers. As a sprint musher myself I could take a lot from this book and apply it to my own training with my dogs. He describes and explains training situations with great examples. He talks on a comfortable level and has a true passion for dogs.
Much of the info in this book applies to skijoring as well. Recommended by the skijoring book Ski Spot Run.
Jim Welch has written a clear and concise book on training sled dogs to race. There are specific examples to clarify most techniques and ample support for the effectiveness of each method. He has successfully condensed the knowledge of many of the world's top mushers into a relatively short book. Consider it essential reading for anyone who wants to reach the maximum potential of their dogs whether they be competitors at the national or local level.
This is a great read, it was the first book that I brought on mushing a few years ago - lots of handy information from Training to feeding and everything inbetween.I still read it every off season before coming back into training and I pick up more each time.
