Sled Dog Sport
We are a group of like minded sled dog drivers with a passion for sled dog sport.
Based in the Forest of Dean UK we host races, training and educational courses and seminars for sled dog drivers and teams. Set up in late 2000 we have been instrumental in trying to develope the sport, try new formats and introduce new classes into the UK.
In 2001 we hosted the first ever Mono Sports race in the UK at Mallards Pike Lakes, pushed for more open classes and the removal of the old open class registers and welcomed Bikejor, Scooter and Canicross into our race along side the more trasitional teams.
We have Qualified IFSS International race judges, experienced trail crews and a trail checking team with full radio coverage.
We aim to make our races competitive, fun and promote good animal welfare.
Courses and Education
Courses and Education for drivers and their dogs is high on our agenda.
We promote good animal welfare for all sled dogs through sport and knowledge.
Happy and Healthy!
In the past we have co hosted Animal Weffare seminars focusing on Tempratures when running dogs with leading sled dog vet Moncia Panco Duran from Spain, Athelte training on bike handling skills for Bikejor athletes with Dave Windybank of British Cycling.
