Skiing With Your Dog

Snow Sports

skiing with your dog
I know a lot of people who don’t like to ski or snowboard with dogs. But with the right dog, the right snow conditions, and the right skier/snowboarder, it can be a sublime experience for you and your canine companion. Watch this gorgeous video from Argentina below and see why dogs are woman’s best friend.

    I would love to see the video on skiing/snowboarding with your dog. I am repeating what “Dannie” said. I cannot find the video either.

    Skiing with dogs is amazing! I have several tips for people who really want to do this:
    1) Metal-edged skis will cut your dog badly if you happen to run over him/her (I have had two friends slice their dogs achilles while skiing) so be very careful – it helps to have a dog small enough to can carry out
    2) Trim all of the “flair” on their legs, belly and cut the tail short. Cutting the hair in between the paws is also important. A certain wetness of snow will cause balling on the hair and your dog might end up trying to haul 20 lbs of snow.
    3) Dogs would rather die than lose track of their owners. Rest often. Just because the dog is keeping up, it doesn’t mean his body isn’t strained to the breaking point. Keep a close eye on their breathing.
