SHORT REPORT:  How Fritz came home to Nome... see below.

WDW NEWS & Canine Link of the Week

~~~~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~~~~~

To recognize the start of the 33rd running of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska this weekend, we've added new features to WorkingDogWeb.com for your enjoyment. This is a short report, rather than the longer newsletters we send you from time to time.

The Iditarod was inspired by the historic Nome Serum Run in 1925, when relays of sled dog teams brought the desperately needed diphtheria serum to Nome to save many lives.

Among the teams was that of Leonhard Seppala, a famous musher and sled dog racer from Nome, some of whose dogs were ancestors to today's Siberian Huskies. His favorite lead dog was Togo, so we created a new guide to Balto and Togo, two Serum Run lead dogs who became famous.

Less well known was another of Seppala's leaders, Fritz.   Recently, the well known Siberian Husky breeder Natalie Norris rescued the mounted remains of Fritz for the historical museum in Nome.  Enjoy the story of Fritz the Siberian Husky and his return to Alaska where he made history.

As we mentioned last time, we've added a Sled Dog Training Guide with links to many of the best resources on training and conditioning sled dogs for competion.  Also fully updated for 2005 are the WDW Guide to the Yukon Quest and the Guide to the Iditarod.  The Quest was in February, the ceremonial start of the Iditarod March 5 in Anchorage while the restart was March 6 in Willow

The Outdoor Life Network or OLN will air five one-hour programs about the 2005 Iditarod, starting April 2. Among the mushers featured will be Rachael Scdoris 19, the legally blind musher from Oregon who received special permission to run the Iditarod.

Each issue of WDW News online is posted online before we send it by email. You can click through to read the Web version with color and pictures if you prefer.

FEATURED CANINE LINK:                                                                 [ Top ]
--------------------------------------------
The Link of the Week aims to help you improve your dog's skills, behavior and activities, with occasional special features on other topics of interest for working dog owners. No matter your breed, sports or training interest, the link should be worthwhile.
-----

A trainer's honest insights
ROMANCING THE COOKIE

The commitment to using positive training with dogs can lead to a substantial dependence on the use of food rewards -- what this author calls "romancing the cookie." In this Featured Canine Link, you will discover what one trainer found out about positive and negative reinforcement, food treats, keeping a dog's attitude high -- and how dog performance and dolphin performance are truly quite different.

EXTRA CANINE LINK - ADVICE FROM "DOC" LOMBARD:
----

Love to learn dog training insights from the pros? We are pleased to offer as an extra feature an article by Nancy Cowan on sled dog training ideas from Roland "Doc" Lombard, one of the most famous sled dog racers of all time. Nancy draws on the content of her new book, The Training and Racing Journals of Roland and Louise Lombard," for an example or two of how Doc approached training challenges and dog psychology. The article is published online in our Racing Siberian Husky Online section.

* * WONDERFUL DOG BOOKS! * *
                            ---o0o---


Having Fun with Agility
By Margaret H. Bonham

--------------------------------------

We are pleased to feature a wonderful book that explores the increasingly popular sport of dog agility, written by a well-known dog writer.  Agility is the fastest growing dog sport in America -- and this book introduces the fun and games of the sport without all the high pressure aspects of competition. The book includes the use of clicker training as part of agility training.

To examine and order this book, just click
through the link under the book at left.

PUPPY SCHOOL: Everything you need to know to raise the perfect pup
By Maggie Holt & Stella Sweeting

-----
The two authors of this new book together have more than 40 years of experience in dog training athletes, and the book uses a very appealing approach filled with photographs. You have the opportunity to see exactly how a dog can be trained for a specific skill or activitity. Often that skill is illustrated with three or four photos, so you see each step along the way.

Dog behaviors addressed including such things as bite inhibition and the command "watch me" to increase your dog's attentiveness. There is emphasis on teaching dogs the right cue commands. For beginning owners, there are the basics including getting your puppy used to being touched from head to tail.  Even long-time dog owners and trainers will find the book of interest, and may find it a good book to recommend to new puppy owners.

To examine and order this book, just click
through the link under the book at left.

Big-Enough Anna: Little Sled Dog that Braved the Arctic
By Pam Flowers & Ann Dixon

------------------------------------------------
Several summers ago, I had a chance to meet Pam Flowers and her huskies during a trip to Alaska. Since then, WorkingDogWeb has featured her book on her trip across the Arctic [Alone Across the Arctic] and now are delighted to feature Big-Enough Anna, her children's story about Anna, the gutsy husky puppy. Perfect for any child who likes animals and adventure, and for parents who love reading to their youngsters.
