Lessons From Dogs At The Park! Observing Purpose, Community and Connection.



Happy sled dogs bark, especially when excited & ready to go. They may also bark to encourage teammates during the time it takes to harness or feed, and sometimes in unison for an after-dinner howl, lasting only a few minutes[1][3].

The closer they get to take off, the more excited and loud their barks get, reflecting their passion for running and the joy they experience in their natural environment[4][5].

While sled dogs do bark, they are perfectly content in their natural environment and live truer to their ancestry, exhibiting a strong passion for their lifestyle.[5]

What activities in your life connect you with excitement and purpose so deeply in your bones that you burst with encouragement and sense of connectedness to both your present experience and to your ancient heritage? Let me know in the comments, if you like.
