The well respected website Labradors International reviewed the Spiffy Dog Air Collar. Monty the chocolate Labrador gave our collar a thorough Lab Test, these were the results...

"I’m pretty sure you’ve had problems with smelly dog collars at some time or other writes Leslie Howard from Labradors International. Actually, what am I saying!? Of course you have, this is a site about Labradors and chances are, you’re here because you share your life with a Lab! They love water. They love mud. They love rolling in nasty things that we can’t even put a name to! Of course your Lab's collar stinks!!!! I’d heard the Spiffy Dog Air Collar could be an answer to this problem so Monty and I put it to the test ..."

After a warm afternoon, Curt Perano of New Zealand finished Race to the Sky 350 Mile Race with 11 strong dogs at 3:27 p.m. this afternoon US mountain time. The following three teams will be in later this afternoon, the next team probably at around 4:30 or 5:00 p.m.  The trail is slow and warm temperatures have slowed things down a bit. The Xtra Dog reporter in Montana, Pam Beckstrom, will have a full report in the next 24 hours, but we thought you might want the result hot off the press.

Curt and his wife Fleur moved with their five Alaskan Malamutes in 2007 to the United States from New Zealand, where they have run dogs recreationally since 1998. Since late 2007 they have trained with and handled for Jamie Nelson in Togo, Minnesota. Over the last three years they have built their own team and now have a kennel of 37, consisting of six Malamutes and the others are Alaskan Huskies

Marshalling the race are Jack and Pam Beckstrom, who make the fantastic Zima harnesses that Xtra Dog are proud to sell. Their company has been making these harnesses for more than 50 years and in fact invented the x-back. Jack has competed in the race himself and has come second twice. He was one of the founders of the race and was chairman for 11 years. Jack has contributed a huge amount to the race and to the whole Montana dog sledding scene.
