Hey guys! I originaly was joining this forum to post about a rescued Mal who was in desperate need of a working home before he got euthanized at a shelter but luckily his breeder was found and they took him in until they find somewhere appropriate to place him. Ah well this looks like a pretty cool place so I figure I'll stick around anyways ;)

My name is Ren and I''m from Souther Ontario. Currently I own 2 Siberian Huskies whom I compete in sprint dogsled racing with. When I race I normally run a team of 4 dogs. I use dogs owned by my mentor to complete my team. I have been competitive in the sport for roughly 4 years now.

I started working with and training dogs when I was 8 years old at a kennel that raised Golden Retrievers for leisure hunting. I researched and studied dog behaviour, wolf behaviour and various different training methods throughout my life, altering my own training method as I went along. I am a firm believer that you can learn stuff from anybody and everybody so I would even sit in on lectures done by trainers who I didnt agree with at all.

I am also a firm believer that every dog whether they weigh 2Lbs or 200Lbs should have a job to do in order to live a happy life. I even say its cruel to NOT give a dog a job to do!

Currently Im branching out from dogsledding with my lead dog and entering the world of weightpulling. I think he could do really well in it, but we shall see.

Anyways I'll stop blabbing and show you guys some pictures!
