About Helen Corlew-owner
I was raised
with hunting dogs (Irish & English setters) but
seriously started working with dogs in the 1960's by
raising puppies for Leader
Dogs for the Blind, Rochester, MI. I was
involved in their program for over 30 years. I
have successfully completed the Tellington TTouch
practitioner Level 1 training, attended hands on
workshops on dog sledding, obedience and agility plus
taught dog training classes. At present I have 26
dogs (2012), with 8 of these dogs seniors (8 years old
or older). I started working with Samoyeds in harness
the winter of 1998-1999 with a few dogs and it has
grown! A part of my heart and my self belongs to
Samoyeds and dog sledding.
PIDT: Everyone is introduced to dog
safety, plus equipment and sledding safety before
meeting the dogs. Then the fun begins!
After meeting the dogs you are shown how to harness a
dog and you are encouraged to help harness the dogs and
walking them to the gangline for the first trip on the
trails at Red
Willow Bible Camp (near Binford, ND). While
out on the sled you will have a chance to ride in the
basket and also be on the runners of the sled.
PIDT uses a Prairie
Bilt dually sled, so a guest has the opportunity
to be on the runners with the safety of the musher right
there with you. You are encouraged to be
involved in the dog sledding experience at the level you
are comfortable. You will also have an opportunity
to snowshoe, a natue hike and/or cross country ski!
Dog sledding is a great way to enjoy ND winter for
families, couples, individuals, and/or groups (boy
scouts, 4-H, church, birthday parties, etc.).
