George Attla says there is no way to make champions out of dogs without loving them and taking the best possible care of them. He’s convinced that sled dogs get more satisfaction out of running than any dog that’s a pet in people’s homes. Like humans, dogs that don’t love what they are doing, can’t give their best. A lot of communication takes place between a team of dogs and a driver that the public watching does not understand.  George shares stories about some amazing races where the dogs did the thinking to win.
