    Lessons from a Mentor with Cruz Schubert

    Lessons from a Mentor with Cruz Schubert

    Having a nearby mushing community is a wonderful learning tool. But living without a local community doesn't mean you will be without access to quality mentoring! In this episode I sit down with musher, Siberian Husky breeder, and passionate mentor Cruz Schubert to talk about some of the early lessons she helps relay to her mentees.

    Fitness for Mushers with Laurie Meyer

    While we often think about how to improve our dog's training skills and fitness, we don't often address the other half of the team. Spending time focusing on our own fitness goals can dramatically improve our ability to enjoy and thrive in this sport. In this episode, I sit down with musher and fitness enthusiast Laurie Meyer to talk about how we can be better for our dogs.

Team Ineka ,

Great show and great host

It was my pleasure to be a guest on the show and talk about dog mushing, training teams and more. This a great show with a great line-up of topics!

Episode 21

Great information! I run 3 huskies using a Diggler scooter recreationally. I don’t race, but the conversation about training and paying attention to your dog is definitely applicable to what I do with my dogs! I’ve listened to episodes 1-4 and then 21. Going back to listen to all episodes. Keep up the good work!

Helpful, inspiring, and interesting.

I have so enjoyed this podcast. The relevant and helpful content has really inspired me to dabble in dog powered sports with my dogs. It’s so interesting to learn about all the different facets of these sports and the dogs and humans that enjoy them.
