If the show that sled dogs provide us is both wonderful and filled with the deepest respect for the animal, it is incumbent upon everyone to understand and apply a few rules of behavior in order not to harm these athletes that are the dogs.
Consult the LEKKAROD spectator's guide in download below.


Our eco-friendly commitments:

The activity of sledding allows sled dogs to take their place in nature. And to satisfy their animal instinct by running through the snow. But it is also a good way to forge their pack spirit, to strengthen their cohesion and the triangular relationship between man, animal and nature.
