Tyler McKean

Tyler and his dog, Buddy, have run more than 50 skijoring races together and you can often see them on trails around the Twin Cities metro enjoying winter fun together.

There is nothing that gets Buddy more excited than to see Tyler waxing his skis for the first snow!

Winter Fun With Your Dog: Skijoring 101
Tyler and Buddy Bringing it Home at the Barkie Birkie!

Skijoring combines dog power and cross-country skiing.  It's a cooperative sport that employs the athletic ability of both dog and skier.

Assuming you own cross-country ski equipment and an energetic dog, you can simply add the necessary skijoring equipment and you're ready to begin a thoroughly enjoyable adventure.

Skijoring is filled with all the romance of dog sledding with the simplicity of walking your dog.

You can compete in pro-class races, have fun in the “recreation ” class, join your skijoring friends in “fun-runs”, or head out on your own to explore woodland trails.
