This video begins with Tolvi getting harnessed for the first time! Since this can be a time-consuming (while adorable) first experience to get on video, we didn’t include every pup here. You’ll have to use Tolvi as a stand-in for whole litter’s cuteness!
In team, Oyvind is the dark pup in the back, Sigrid is the all-white pup, and Tolvi is the caramel-colored pup running in the middle of the team next to the black adult dog, Winnie.
These guys did absolutely awesome for their first time in harness! Tolvi struggled the most, but it can be difficult learning to run next to a partner. It can also be a real comfort for pups, so it’s hard for us to guess at what’s going to work best for each group. After a few minutes Tolvi figured it out and had an awesome time. These days the pups are running with each other as partners!
This is the fist group of pups we have had in a long time where we didn’t have to run in front of the sled to encourage them to chase us. We’ve got big plans for these little “Norwegians!”
