Join Sommerhundekjørerskolen 2018, a gathering point for dog interested youth from 13 to 18 years old (born 2001-2006)! Adolescents from all over Norway and a handfull other nations meet up for a week of experience and knowledge exchange with some of the world best mushers and dog sporters as trainers. Sommerhundekjørerskolen (SHKS) hopes to contribute towards bringing the community together across nationality and training practices.
The week is packed with exciting and educational activitites, adapted both to the first time participant, as well as the ones who have participated earlier. Do you find dog sports and mushing interesting, and wish to see more possibilities for what you may do together with you dog? Then you are most welcome. The same goes for the ones already active in the sport, which wants support and insight in advanced training methods. We all gather here for a social and educational week, with among others hiking, scootering, mushing, canicross, games, speeches and loads more.
Those who are able may bring their own dog which they under supervision from the trainers team are responsible for themselvses throughout the week. We do therefore recommend to practice this in advance. All kind and healthy dogs over 12 months of age following Norwegian rules are welcome. We would be happy to see a big variety of breeds. Considering the well being of all dogs at the campshall dogs in heat to left home. One is also welcome without a dog.
