Racing Sled Dog Handlers

Peter Jones

The beginning ….

Pete says, “Myself and Karen got involved with sled dog racing about 20 years ago, starting off with 2 dogs and a just for fun attitude to the sport.

As the Siberian Husky is a very addictive breed we soon grew in numbers of dogs and Karen also started racing a team.

The passion of running dogs is now in my blood and running big teams and enjoying the power they have is a feeling you can never share but enjoy every time it's just you and the team out on the trail.”

The current kennel 

At September 2017 the kennel has 21 racing Siberian Huskies aged from 6 months up to 12 years.

The many successful races over the years include

Pete winning Aviemore Siberian Husky Club of GB Rally 4 years in a row, with a further 4 years in second place. 

Racing in the European Dry Land Championships 2017 and getting a Silver medal for Great Britain - a massive credit to Team Coldfeet.

The 6 dog team have also won Pete the Siberian Husky Club of GB Mushers Championship for the last 2 years.

Karen has won the 4 dog Mushers Championship for the last 3 years and many top 3 finishes in Siberian Husky Club and BSSF races.

Shows too!

The couple also have had successful show wins with various of the Coldfeet team including a Best Puppy in Breed at Crufts and numerous Best of Breeds and Group placings. 

“We have a successful kennel built up over many years and have learned many things on the journey. One of the major things is finding a diet that works .The food you choose to give the dogs needs to produce good energy levels and help to keep a good healthy dog that you get the longevity for a long healthy working life. A happy dog is a good working dog .

We find CSJ CP30 does this and as we train all year round (weather permitting) we have no need to change their food from summer season to winter.”

The poo eating has stopped!

Dear Ceri.

I am writing to say a huge thankyou!!!

Our 10month old choc lab has been a poo eater for almost the entire time we have had her (since 8wks old). We have tried everything we could think of seeking support from other owners of dogs that poo eat and vets, nutritionalists and behavouralists - and to be honest, had almost given up.

After speaking to a friend whose dog eats your food, we decided to look at your website and eventually spoke to you on the phone. We talked about our dogs (3 labs - all with different requirements) and home situation, as well as indepth diet discussions, and decided to try your advice (we had nothing to lose as it couldn't be any worse!).

I have to say, we are over the moon to be able to say IT WORKED! (in the first day!!) The poo eating has stopped and her stools have become more normal, and we can now finally begin to enjoy our gorgeous dog.

Thank you so much for treating us as individuals, and following us through a very stressful problem.

We will continue to follow your advice and will be recommending anybody with the same issues to yourselves.

If anyone is reading this and is having the same problem with a dog, dont give up. There is help out there, honest!!

Natalie
