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. There are far better ways of training your dog. Just as you don’t need to cane children anymore, we’ve moved on from that – let’s move on from electric shock dog collars.”

Kennel Club welcomes consultation
Kennel Club welcomes consultation on third-party puppy sale ban
The Kennel Club, whose own regulations explicitly ban the sale of puppies to third parties, has long called for an end to the sale of puppies in pet shops and by other third party retailers, as puppy farmers often use such outlets to sell their pups to unsuspecting members of the public who never see the terrible conditions that the pups were raised in.

Day 4 McGrath to Ophir

Ryne left the McGrath checkpoint at 1:57am AKDT for a night run. It’s great to travel at night for the cooler temperatures that keep dogs happy and snow from turning soft and punchy. Five hours and thirteen minutes later, team pulls into Ophir where it likely Ryne is taking her mandatory 24 rest and the time differential.

The 24 hour rest must be taken at an official checkpoint between the Skwenta to Iditarod stretch. It could be taken at Iditarod but it has to be taken before going on to Flat for the return trip. Time differential is how the race makes up for the mushers beginning at staggered times. Each bib left 2 minutes after the previous one. Since mushers can take their mandatory rests at various times, the Standings will be shaken up until all rests are completed. That’s when we’ll clearly see the race Standings!

The team pulled into the Ophir check point at 7:10am. Before starting our day here at the kennel, Kalyn watched the livestream and captured screenshots for us! Ryne was the 4th team to enter Ophir.
