Sunfire Samoyeds – Pictures
Most Samoyeds retain an instinct to herd sheep and other animals. Their history as herders goes back to their origin with the Samoyede people, where they not only pulled the sledge loaded with supplies, but also herded reindeer.
Dog Therapy Work –
Patti and Boris and two other handlers began the dog therapy program at a local hospital. Patti and Kara are still volunteering at the hospital. Dog therapy visits with hospitalized patients allows patient relaxation, distraction from pain or serious diagnostic information, and pleasant recall of past dogs and loving experiences. It takes their mind off the hospital experience.
Pack Hikes – Scootering - Sledding
Scootering - Sledding
Pack hikes are a great way to spend time with your Sam in the great outdoors, especially if you have some picturesque scenery to walk along. Parks are perfect. Five miles (or more) distance and a pack filled with 1/4 of the dog's weight earn points toward a Working Samoyed title - and its fun. Below are pictures of a pack hike, Michael scootering and sledding and Boris at Lake Tahoe pulling a 50 lb. weight (bag of salt) on a short 'sled' wearing his booties for great conditioning. He looks pretty good at the end of his trail as we call him to us.
