3. Yes! I do work my dogs- having a job to do keeps them exercised, mentally stimulated and happy! All of the dogs participate in the wonderful Working Dog Program offered by the Chinook Owners Association. The are pursuing Sled Dog - Excellent titles and have all achieved Novice Sled Dog Certification. They work in harness several times a year - we sled every winter, whenever we can find snow! More frequently, we bike-jor (the dogs harnessed to a mountain bike on a dirt trail) in the fall, winter, and spring in not-so-snowy NJ. Both Conaway and Tikaani have earned Canine Good Citizen awards. All of the dogs participate in conformation showing to receive objective review on their conformation so I may make more informed breeding decisions.
