Urban Mushing/Skijoring

Note:  Please understand that this video is taken in a VERY rare cirucumstance at Photo 51.  I do not normally suggest or practice running a dog on concrete.
I ran Mendel short distances on my roller blades because I'm fairly stable on them and was able to teach him how things worked without investing in a lot of equipment.  I am also confident in my braking ability on roller places so I could make sure he didn't get hit from behind while he was learning.

PLEASE don't make runnig on concrete a regular practice with your dog!!  It's simply TOO hard on their joints.  Concrete is not a surface a dog should be run on regularly or for long distances.
