QPAWS is an abbreviation of QRILL Pet Arctic World Series

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.

  More information about the QPAWS race series is available here and at the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon page.
