With the recent video making the rounds, we at the OFSS feel obligated to comment to the public.
Our organization was formed to promote, educate, organize and participate in various disciplines of harness dog sports. We have passed and encouraged members to follow our in-depth standards of care for dog husbandry and kennel management. We also provide kennel inspections to all members to help achieve and maintain those high standards and invite those that have not had one to contact us to make arrangements.
The OFSS is not a governing body for the sled dog industry or enthusiasts. It is not in our mandate to endorse or oppose any facility or individual. Therefore, the OFSS cannot take a position in matters in which we have no authority.
The OFSS is a group who welcomes ALL! We are presently working very hard to change the image of the OFSS to better incorporate “ALL” – whether you have one dog or one hundred dogs. You don’t have to race to be a part of this club.
We are working on organizing other events separate from the races which are already established. We are trying to come up with new ideas that will better suit the needs of the recreational person. Anyone with any breed of dog that can pull is welcome to join. Contact the President or Vice President for further information and member contacts.
Present members can bring the newcomer a wealth of information to make working with your dogs more enjoyable each and every day.
If any club member has any ideas to better the club or has constructive concerns please contact the President or Vice President of the club with your comments or ideas. Have safe and happy trails.
