    We've been lucky enough to run our gang in harness (usually B & Y on the scooter, K on the bike) on the many beautiful forest paths here in Sweden and they are improving each run. Broder especially is doing me proud, he's really got drive and no longer stops when faced with hills but keeps on going. He loves it! They are still only doing short runs (the longest is about 7 miles up a long incline) but they need to build muscle first and still enjoy it.

    Sadly I don't have pictures of them actually on the move as I don't have a camera mount.

    Today they had their first go on the four wheeled cart with a borrowed youngster named Finn. They kept going despite it weighing in at a hefty 95kg, compared to the scooter which is about 18kg! I'm very proud of all of them.

    We'll more than likely be back in England sooner than expected so will have to see about getting a training permit and perhaps entering some 1 or 2 dog races. They aren't very fast though, so it would just be for fun.

    Thanks for looking. :biggrin5:

    I hope they're happy. It's great to see the enthusiasm even when the terrain is difficult. :)

    Excellent photos, and it's so nice to see these dogs doing what they were bred to do when i'm so used to seeing them pavement pounding on lead round here.
