Can watching international sled dog racing make you a better dog owner? It's not as much of a stretch as you think. A new, exciting and far-flung partnership has the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon part of a race series that includes Norway, Russia and Alaska.
QPAWS is short for Qrill Pet Arctic World Series. It's a TV platform to allow storytelling for mushing events, it's a way to follow the race from the comfort (and warmth!) of your own couch, and organizers say it's a way to bring the joy and excitment of the sport to people as well as advance the idea of dog welfare.
