Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi Everyone,

After using this forum for information for a few months, I decided that I should join! My name is Adam and I adopted my husky from a shelter last April as a graduation present. His name is Kashtin and he is a two year old male. So far we have tried bike joring, hiking, boating (he didn't care to swim much), and recently after the snowstorm passed through the Midwest we tried sledding!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone and learning a ton!

- Adam and Kashtin

Thanks everyone! There is no way I would buy a dog when there are huskies that need rescued. Kashtin was there for a month all because no one could walk him on leash and it only took us a week to figure that one out! He came fully trained with a ton of tricks and house broken as well.

I'm from the Quad Cities area. Where are the other people from Iowa/Illinois from? Anyone know if there are any groups around Iowa for bike joring/urban mushing?

Pictures to come soon hopefully if I can figure out how to upload them.

Prefers supervising everyone instead of swimming.


Enjoying a break between taking people on sled rides!

I am located right where IA, IL and MO meet along the Mississippi, so roughly a few hours south of the Quad Cities.

From where I'm from there is nothing, which sucks a lot. I'm sure people look at me crazy when I'm out with the dogs in harness lol

Small world! I am also from the QC.

I graduated from MHS in 2010.

Sorry, I don't know about any groups for biking. Sad

I graduated from Assumption in '08. We use both the Davenport dog park as well as Crow Creek in Bettendorf. I've heard of one in IL but we haven't tried it yet (mainly because he gets too excited in the car).

I live in the Quad Cities too, in East Moline. Just moved there about a year and a half ago. I was big into mushing before we moved, but I can't find any unpaved trails that are big enough to fit the dog sled. There are some nice trails on Sylvan island, but its usually pretty busy with walkers and bikers during the summer. I did take the scooter out there a few times last winter, since we had no snow, but not sure how this winter will pan out. Bikejored at Sunderburch park outside of Davenport, it was okay. I've been spoiled with awesome trail systems in Wisconsin, so I'm picky about where I run!

Hi, I was wondering if anyone in Iowa could help me figure out how to do Urban Mushing. I plan on getting a Husky in the future, but would like to try out this sport with my parents Brittany Spaniel while I wait. Would love to meet with someone in Des Moines, but can look into traveling to learn this sport. Smile
