A few weeks ago I posted about Jake (aka Radar/Chester). Chester returned to our house. He’s a great dog, but a menace because he’s a fence jumper and collar escaper. I really want him to be a pet dog, he loves snuggling on the couch, but he get’s distracted and goes outside and bothers the sled dogs.
Last night I took Chester on a 4 mile mush with my geriatric/lame dog team. The line up was:
- Darla and Duke (lead)
- Red (point)
- Nutok and Bandit (swing)
- Chester and Sugar (wheel)
Chester did great! He had a little trouble at the end of the run when he had to run uphill. He pulled quite well.
