Spring…

Officially spring has arrived but in some areas dog sledding is at its best with snow and long days. Where the temperatures have warmed enough to start melting the snow, or have melted it, Inuit dogs might experience a slump when they are not so interested in food and seem to lack the energy for running. Just like for people, it takes a few days for their body to adjust. At this time, a lesser amount of food is needed though the proportions must remain the same, except for the fat which should be reduced to a token to keep the dog’s metabolism on track and food quantity adjusted for the summer.
