Mushing course "Hälla"

The four-season course with great variety of dates (participants steer their team themselves, also as a voucher)

Siberian Huskies exert a special attraction on many people. Friendly and good-natured with bipeds, but also lively and excitedly barking when waiting to start a sled or all-terrain-vehicle tour - Huskies are versatile! To drive a Husky team by yourself – a wish many dog lovers have! In this half-day course, we will show you how.

All participants will complete a basic course in mushing, the art of driving Huskies with a sled or all-terrain-vehicle (ATV).

We begin by introducing the dog breed and our pack. You can watch them in the kennel while learning about pack behavior and the training of sled dogs. This is followed by instructions on driving techniques as well as safety while steering the sled or ATV.

We will then introduce you to your team of 3 to 4 dogs and harness them. Provided with our expertise, you will learn how to drive your team of dogs during a 30-minute tour. We will assist you while turning corners and, if the dogs need help going uphill, with the pedaling technique.

The tour takes us from the grounds of the farm directly into the Frankendorfer forest, via forest and field trails, on which beginners can safely steer their team. At our resting places, where we provide the dogs with water, you can also look around the wide landscape. Not infrequently, deer and deer cross our route.

Returning to the Husky farm, the dogs will be praised watered and you will be shown how to correctly unharness them. After an extensive cuddling session, we will bring the dogs into the kennels. After they have settled down in their favorite spots you will start your way home with a variety of impressions from this eventful day.

Conclusion of many guests after the tour: Here one experiences nature, silence and animals very intensively and away from everyday life!
