The Willow Dog Mushers Association’s mission is to:

  • Promote the sport of dog mushing through education, communication, recreational activities and competition.
  • Promote responsible dog care and husbandry.
  • Address issues relating to the interests of current and future dog mushers; including trail easements, trail safety, government regulations, noise ordinances, and zoning.
  • Establish and maintain relationships with other dog mushing associations in order to have a larger voice on dog mushing issues.
“To push behind the dog sled and run in front of the dog sled. That was always an interesting job.”
Ann Bancroft
“You have to work without using your mouth so much. It’s more about who you are, and the dogs pick up on that.”
Dan Carter
“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift.”
