About Us

Not just a walk!

 Every dog can use a daily walk, but some need more than just a walk!  SOLUTION: Urban Mushing (also known as Dryland Mushing, Canicross, Skijoring, Bikejoring, Scootering, Scooterjoring [Scoojoring] and skatejoring)!! Most high-energy breeds need more exercise than a normal person has the ability or time to give. These special dogs need a job to do. When a dog isn’t getting his or her exercise needs met, they can take out their energy or anxiety in destructive chewing or other behavioral issues, which is one of the main reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters. Great news is, we are here to help! 

Urban Mushing

 Urban Mushing, also called Dryland Mushing, was originally put into practice to keep winter sled dogs in top shape during the off-season.  It is similar to traditional dog sledding except it’s done on dry land, not snow.  Instead of pulling a sled, urban mushing involves a dog(s) pulling a cart, scooter, bike or other apparatus.  Joring is a Swedish word that means “driving or pulling”.   All of the Joring/Urban Mushing sports require the dog to:

  1. Wear a harness to pull (or run beside a handler) effectively and comfortably. 
  2. Be hooked up to special bungee lines that absorb shock and provide a safe pulling experience for the dog and the handler.  
  3. Learn special commands so that the handler and dog can work as a team.

What We Do

 Just about any healthy dog can learn to scooter, small or large, young or old!  We always offer in-home product demos, harness fittings and consultations FREE of charge.  


Additional Services Offered: 


1. Group events:  throughout the year, we offer opportunities for groups of people to try out the sport of Urban Mushing, classes for dogs and owners to learn & refine skills, and group activities to promote socialization.  Please check out our events on Facebook often to see what we have coming up.  

2. Private in-home classes, teaching both owners and dogs the sport in 1 or more sessions. Owners have an opportunity to purchase harnesses, gear and scooters during this visit. 

3. Dog scootering service (similar to dog walking service). 1-6 scooter sessions per week with a dog: training, equipment and handler provided.
