Intro to Igloo Building – Experience

The igloo, like the birch bark canoe, is a Canadian icon.

Despite all these advantages this superior winter dwelling remains under-appreciated even by many winter campers simply because few today are familiar with how to camp in and construct one, especially in our Ontario snow conditions, which necessitate different techniques.

Both of these activities provide the opportunity to deepen the human/canine bond as the participants work together as a team. If your are in reasonably good shape and your dog is energetic and loves to pull, one or both of these activities could be perfect for both of you.

Canicross is the activity of walking/running with a harnessed dog that is attached to the person’s Canicross belt with a bungee line.

Kicksled is the activity of dog sledding where the person participates by running with or kicking the sled along.
