Celebrating the Many Faces of Sled Dog Sports

June 28, 29 & 30  

At the 2013 ISDRA Meeting in Harrisburg, PA

Hosted by the PA Sled Dog Club



The weekend will be filled with fascinating speakers including long-distance pure-bred Siberian racer Karen Ramstead, and multi-ISDRA sprint and Dryland medalists Jan Bootz-Dittmar with her daughter Jayme Dittmar. Canine genetics expert Dr. Heather Huson will be on hand to explain the difference and similarities between their dogs.

Iditarod veterinarian Dr Jerry Vanek will explain the dos and don’ts of stretching and massaging your dogs. You can also learn about the sled dogs at Denali National Park in Alaska. Both Jayme Dittmar, a current ranger at the park and Ted Roeder who was a park ranger working with the park’s sled dogs back in the 1950’s will explain the unique program.

There will also be a variety of vendors with sled dog items to browse and buy, the ISDRA silent auction, PSDC raffles, a moonlit cruise on the Susquehanna River, the ISDRA Annual Meeting, and the highlight of the weekend  ISDRA's awards banquet honoring the 2013 medal winners.
