Skijoring is cross-country skiing while being pulled by your dog(s). It is a sport that originated in Scandinavia several hundred years ago and is quickly gaining popularity States side. One type of skijoring is done behind horses.  However, I teach skijoring as a team sport with you and your dog. Dog skijoring shares many traditions with dog sledding, and sled dog clubs and races often have a skijor component.

Skijoring can be done on any type of cross country ski. At slower speeds or in deeper snow, it is done on classic or touring skis…even backcounty skis! At faster speeds and on groomed trails, skate skiing is often the preferred choice.
