The American Dryland Mushers Asscoiation was started in 2009 with the purpose to educate the public about Dryland Mushing as well as to promote Dryland Mushing as a competative sport, not just a way to train dogs in the off season.
Dryland Mushing is not abusive to the dogs, they love it. When I hook up my dogs to the bike they start jumping and barking and trying to run off before I'm ready. In the case of northern breeds, such as Siberians, this is what the dogs were born to do. Pull and Run.
