  • Description


    When the winter dogsledding season is over, it's a good time to clean, repair, check the equipment in order to store it until next winter, and prepare the summer equipment for the summer season.
    It's also a good time to build or repair the dogyard (fences, put more gravel, etc) and the doghouses.
