Clinic Fee:  $35 (includes a complimentary harness and trail pass)

Ski Equipment:  available at DTR for $20/day.  Skier can use skate skis or classic skis.


Suggested dog weight about 30 pounds. (The real determination is based on the dog/skier team. A small dog,even a Jack Russel Terrrier, with a light, capable skier is a possibility.  However, a small dog with a heavy, inexperienced skier is not a good idea.
Dogs must be in good health, including joints - especially hips.
No aggressive dogs please. Dogs must be able to tolerate the presence of other dogs (they don't need to like other dogs, they just need to tolerate them) as well as humans.
