Alaskan Malamutes - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

THERE was a noticeable lack of all Malamute teams at Aviemore this year with just a handful of teams completing; a vast reduction from previous years I recall not so long ago the freighting classes brimming with all Malamute teams.      However, having said that, it looks as if the trek that happens on t...

Of course more UK exhibitors seem to be sam...
