Have you ever thought that being pulled along by a team of sleddogs in the wilderness or running cross country, harnessed to your canine best friend would be a ‘pawsome’ way to keep fit for you and your family? TASSI (Tasmanian Association of Sleddog Sports Inc) are a family friendly club who keep fit by doing just this!

TASSI are holding a Season Opener Bootcamp next month for both current and interested members to be held at the Myrtle Park Camping Ground in Targa (North Eastern Tasmania or 30 kilometres from Launceston).

The overnight bootcamp will cover topics such as; driver education, directional commands, lead-dog training, safety discussions, equipment, race rules.

On Saturday afternoon a 3 heat 100 metre sprint race will be held for beginners and the more advanced, for adults and children. Spectators can watch the teams in action!

On Sunday we will be doing a morning run on The Lisle Valley track with our dogs.

Be prepared for lots of excited woo-wooing from our pooches!
