Service Description

SCHEDULE 1:00 dog harness fitting (outside Selkirk lodge) 1:20 clinic inside Selkirk Lodge 1:50 retrieve dogs from the car; put on gear; meet at the start of Linder 2:00 on-snow portion of the clinic Borrowing gear is part of the $25 fee and there is no extra charge to borrow gear. All participants are required to bring their own Nordic ski equipment. The loaner gear we provide is only for skijor equipment (belt, harness, and tug line) Q: How many dogs can I bring to the clinic? One individual may bring up to two dogs, however, we suggest that when learning how to skijor, humans should start with one dog. The $25 registration fee is per human-dog team. Q: Can I bring other family members? Yes, we encourage family members to attend the clinic together. The $25 registration fee covers the one human-dog team, no matter how many humans attend to learn about the sport. Q: Do I classic or skate ski while skijoring? You can either classic or skate ski when skijoring. Traditionally (and competitively), humans skate ski behind their dogs, but when learning, classic skiing works great too. Q: Does my dog have to wear booties? No, your dog does not have to wear booties for the clinic. Booties will be covered during the informational off-snow portion of the clinic. Q: Do I have to pick up my dog’s poop? Yes, at Mt. Spokane State Park’s Nordic ski area, you are required to pick up all dog feces immediately and carry it with you on the trail. Therefore, we suggest that you attend the clinic with a fannypack or backpack and carry lots of strong dog poop bags (old bread bags work well). Email the instructor Richard Kier with any questions:
