A very busy month here at Arctictribe!
The 27th of this month see’s Ayla and Emme complete a 7.5 mile Trek with Natalie under AMWA across some tough terrain, we are very proud of them especially as AMWA deemed Ayla responsible enough to be the first junior to complete a trek of this nature. Muddy pictures to follow!!
A week before xmas we get a phonecall from the local newspaper, asking if they could run a story about our adventures with our Alaskan Malamutes.. Click on the pic below for the story!
On the 11th we attend Ringwood, ABSA who hold their third UK Championship event of the season..Ayla and Emme compete in their J1 class… We are all thrilled when they are awarded 2nd place.. the other 4 teams all consisted of 2 dog Siberian Huskies!!
Huge well done to both of them..
The start of this month we all trek up to Sherwood Forest to see Ayla and Emme gain another respectable 3rd Place..both smiling crossing the finish line.
Mark and Elmo went round the trail and came in a very good 8th place out of 13 teams, what made us especially proud was that Elmo consistently pulled Mark around the trail with hardly any scooting needed from Mark..Elmo is not the most confident dog when out in front on his own so this was really lovely to see that his confidence has obviously grown.
This month sees Emme start her Dryland Racing career and she’s off to a flying start.
At her first race with Ayla they come in 3rd place, the only 1 dog team and only 7 seconds behind 2nd place.. Well done girls!
At Emme’s second race with her friend Knight, sees her take a very proud 1st place over a weekends racing.. really brilliant result, this was also Mark’s first trophy and you can’t get better than 1st!!
Also this month Emme completes her WTD Working Team Dog requirements, she did this in four trips totalling 49 miles. Subject to certification Emme will be known as:
*Chayo Out Of The Blue within Arctictribe WTD*
This month we receive Maddy’s WPDA certificate from AMCA.. ‘Working Pack Dog Advanced‘ Total distance of 80 miles with overnight campouts carrying 30% of her bodyweight.
She is only the 7th Alaskan Malamute to gain this title.
You keep on trekking where ever you are baby girl …
‘Maddy’ forever in our hearts *Chayo Northern Lights within Arctictribe WTD, WPD, WPDA*
We have been out having fun trekking across the plains, mostly at night when the temps are at their coolest
Emme has taken to working like a duck to water, her lines are tight, tail up, head down..
Emme and Ayla start their training for the J1 season and are both having loads of fun!
It is with great sadness we announce that Maddy ‘Chayo Northern Lights within Arctictribe’ has passed over the bridge
