Fluffy Dog Run Powerfully -Sled Dog Racing in Eniwa-
February 10th, 2017
Eniwa Sled Dog Racing (恵庭犬ぞり大会) is one of 3 sled dog racings held in Hokkaido and is held on Saturday and Sunday in early February in ecorinvillage (えこりん村), Eniwa city. In Hokkaido, the sled dog racings used to be held in various places and took a hold in International Sled Dog Racing Cup of Wakkanai, Domestic Sled Dog Racing of Asahikawa and Eniwa. There is a restraunt at a site, so tourists enjoy dishes. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
The sled dog racing is a competition in speed for a distance and the number of dogs. A person called Musher controls the dogs and is important to synchronize dog's timing. When I watched the racing, the dogs became completely exhausted immediately if they did not synchronize the timing. In addition, it is important for the musher to kick up. By the way, running dogs in their best looked very cute, and my favorite is a fluffy Siberian husky.
