      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Where should I take my dog???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I got a few trips in this summer and had a great time in the North Cascades, but I've yet to be here over a winter.

 

I'm hoping to take the new puppy (10 week old Alaskan Malamute) up to the snow this weekend and play. I'm looking for somewhere dog friendly with hopefully a ski or snowshoe trail that we can go and see what kind of snow dog he's gonna be.

 

If anybody is interested in coming too, I was thinking Sunday.

 

Cheers

-Steve

At 10 weeks old the pup is not goin to be able to go more then an hour in deep snow....maybe even shorter. I have a 2 year old Siberian Husky and she was 6 months before she could hold her own in deep snow.

 

And trust me, that dog is to snow as a fish to water. It is so much fun to watch a dog bred for snow play in it.

 

Enjoy

At 10 weeks I think the back yard is your best bet. Anything else and you'll be doing your best friend a real disservice. :noway:

I would bet that 10 minutes frollicking in the snow on some logging road or on the edge of a ski area parking lot wouldn't hurt. even for a pup. sure would be fun to watch. just keep your pup on a leash. he/she wouldn't last too long if it got lost.

We were in Oregon over Christmas and he did great at the sledding area but you're right, he doesn't last long. I think I'll just go up and find somewhere we can play around for a little while.
