Lead Dogs

Lead dogs are not only the first pretty face you see at the front of a team, they are the ones that set the pace, make decisions, and ignore everything else around them except the trail ahead. They come in all shapes and sizes, and both genders, and each of them shine in different circumstances.  Support a lead dog here.

Team Dogs

Team dogs are the engines. Many of them can assume the lead, but are usually happiest powering from behind. The Shady Pines team dogs are a fast, driven, and lovable bunch. Support a team dog here.


There are a big crop of yearlings this year! 2018-9 will be the first year of training for the Triplets, Flora and Fauna, and Willie Nelson Jr. Special thanks to the friends who are going to help train this group of youngsters!
