Ever thought about Urban Mushing

A new sport sweeping the world………mushing without snow

With Urban Mushing you replace sled and snow with wheels and dirt!

Siberian Huskies are born to do it as are many other North American Breeds. These include Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyed and the Canadian Eskimo dog and the Alaskan Huskies, which are now the breed of choice for running the Iditarod. These breeds are bred specifically to pull sleds.

Other dog breeds are also suitable, especially to have fun urban mushing around your neighbourhood or with your local mushing group.

These breeds include the working and sporting type breeds , which have energy to burn and also find fulfillment in running and pulling.

These breeds include:-

  • German Shepherds
  • Belgian Malinois
  • Dalmatians
  • Portugese Water Dogs
  • Akitas
  • Jindos
  • Australian Shepherds
  • German Short-Haired Pointers (these dogs can sometimes hit speeds of 30 MPH/48KPH or more!)

These are just some of the breeds that have taken to dog scootering and other urban mushing type activities.

Whatever breed your dog might be, even the lovable mixed breed mutt, if they have a lot of energy and love to run and pull, then this could be the perfect exercise for them.

All you need to get started is the wheeled vehicle (usually a scooter), a pulling harness for the Husky (or other breed/dog) and a scooter line for the dog to pull you along in your scooter.  Of course your dog will need to be strong enough to pull you.

One of the huskies in the video below is Lilo, the lovely girl who fostered the orphan kitten. Check out her earlier story.

This mushing adventure was all caught on camera…what a ride!
