A doghandler takes care of the dogs. Mostly it's the work in the kennel,
service and feed the dogs, help in the training.
During the race-seasons the handler has tough and long working-days
(nights) under sometimes very bad weather-conditions.
Snow, coldness, lonesomeness ... everything is daily routine.
Frequently the success depends from the help of the handlers. During
races fast reactions and empathy is important for the dogs and the
humans. Often you have to make your decisions in seconds and blind
trust in the team is needed. Every handhold must in place, the handler
will be the lenghten arm of the musher.
Often there is no time for politeness, all instructions come lean and
accurate, and the precise execution is a must.
To be a doghandler isn't a workaday-job. It's a lifestyle.
Healthy hardness against yourself is compellable demandable.
Why shall I do such a thing to me ?
