Loved the article very insightful about joring as I have always put joring together with sledding I found it interesting to know the real definition. My lab mix I think would be good with this as he loves to be in the lead. Though I can see where it would take some work and consistancy on the part of the owner.

I didn’t know this was a thing, so thanks for the info!

Joring in the snow is very interesting “sport” and I would like to give it a try. Doing it with dogs can be very interesting and I think that both owner and dog would enjoy.


I got here looking for ways to train dogs,and learnt a lot about dog joring . Is seems like a great activity to participate in with our German Shepherd, he is bouncing off the walls with too much energy and I think will enjoy the open fields running ahead of a bike since we don’t have snow where I live . I am going to get the needed equipment and books to prepare for some dogjoring fun .I have a very furry and energetic terrier as well ,it’s a small breed, since it meets the criteria of a dog that… Read more »
