Busy Bees: Dogs Across America

Dogs Across America is a special outdoorsy activity for pets and their humans demonstrating the amazing, natural pulling ability of pups. Dogs can tow humans on anything from scooters to skateboards, wagons to wheelchairs for this annual, countrywide relay event. The goal is to reach at least 3,000 total miles in a single weekend... so dogs will have technically "crossed" the U.S., state by state. In some locations, coordinators establish routes and relays and participants work with four to six dogs pulling four-wheel rigs and, in other states (with spread out duos), people and their pups total all mileage together from their local trails to create a state total. The event is broken up over three weekends, with pooches from Alaska and Canada participating on October 20 and 21. On November 10 and 11, dogs from the Northern states will strive for their 3,000 miles and, on December 15 and 16, dogs from the Southern states get their chance. If it sounds like something you and your pooches could get into, start doing research on the proper training and equipment that you'll need – it's a great way to interact (and stay fit) with your pet.

Whoa. That looks so cool, but I'd be wary of tiring out my pet chow too much.
