Foreign Secretary backs call to ban shock collars
In a video posted on Ross Thomson MP’s twitter account, the Foreign Secretary states: “I am absolutely shocked to discover that electric collars are being used on dogs as utensils of discipline and education.

Both the handlers and mushers were in meetings this morning where they learned the latest trail conditions and logistics for the start. Though the prediction is for the temperatures to drop, the continued lack of snow here on the Yukon has caused a small course change: after racing to the first checkpoint, the dogs will be transported in dog trucks between checkpoint #1, Braeburn, and check point #2, Carmacks, so details and logistics were shared.

After the morning meetings, mushers had lunch with their Quest Rider. Ryne met her guest rider, Carole, from Colorado! Fun to have folks from her home state up supporting the team.
