We invite you to come spend as MUSH time with your pup(s) out for a day of fun and get to know other pet owners to share valued info, tips, ideas & anything related to our love for the pup(s).
This is a "Owner's Only Group" You must already own a dog to join.

This group is truly “cooperative” in the sense that:
- We value friendship-building & community camaraderie - true sportsmanship!
- Members are expected to contribute as many IDEAS and help plan events as much as possible in our LOCAL communities.
- Always use discretion & practice proper etiquette to all BSD NET members.
This is a dog club with friendly folks that enjoy safe recreational fun. A photo of your dog(s) is now required to join for the safety of everyone in the group.

*PLEASE NOTE ALL EVENTS ARE WEATHER DEPENDING*
THIS IS A VOLUNTARY ADULT/DOG NON INCLUSIVE GROUP THAT IS NON PROFIT & DRAMA FREE - WE RESPECT EVERYONE & ASK WILLINGLY ALL members to participate as MUSH as possible. Most of these activities are geared towards the northern breeds YET all breeds are welcome to join in as long as the dogs (and owners) are properly socialized. Working dogs are happiest when they have a purpose and enjoy doing what they were bred to do. Please join us and help promote a healthier, happier & more meaningful lifestyle for your beloved canine companion. Preserve the pack, protect the bond and get into the outdoors for a healthy relationship between yourself and your best friend…Mushing is fun, both to take part in and to watch. Your dog will love it, you’ll become a team and you’ll get fit too! There are amateur running teams & we do this sport ALL YEAR ROUND 4 SEASONS - PLEASE SHARE LOCATIONS SO WE CAN ALTERNATE RIDING PLACES & IF POSSIBLE INVEST IN A FULL BODY HARNESS & ANY RUNNING GEAR. WE HAVE TUG LINES & MULTIPLE SIZED HARNESSES TO SHARE WITH MEMBERS.
Our pets are incredible animals whose passion for what they do is infectious with everyone they meet and their remarkable behavior demonstrates this every day. What will impress you most is their spirit. They are happiest when ready to MUSH, tug lines tight, leaning into their harnesses. And as the adventure unfolds, you come to bond with each dog's personality. We encourage every member to share ideas, suggestion & feedback!
Please follow the expected rules of etiquette and ONLY YOU are responsible for yourself and your dog's safety at all times! ALWAYS consider weather conditions, traffic conditions, or any other matters beyond the control of the organizer(s) when attending any Meetup Event and PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT READING THE COMMON COURTESY GUIDELINES
Good Dogs are Good Citizens
If you and your dog have good manners people will notice. Not only will you be welcome by more people and places, you will making a difference by representing your breed and canines in general. This is the only way our dogs will be treated like good citizens.
Most Frequently Asked Question: Do we need any mushing experience?
Not all members or pups MUSH so ALL our Meetups are NOT geared to only mushing, when we meet, they are always some that prefer to walk instead. Most places we go to are 'new' so we dont know if the trails are 'mushable'. If its a repeat location where we have already mushed before then we usually mush there again but thats always an optional desire. We are a very informal group & we do our events depending on many variables such as location, weather, mushing gear & equipment.
PLEASE DO NOT use this group as a means for finding a Breeding Mate or as a sole resource for Selling Puppies. We do welcome notification of Huskies in shelters that are in need for forever families.
There is a FORUM on the Message Board for: OPERATION RESCUE MUSH WHISPER
2 VERY IMPORTANT DISCLAIMERS REGARDING RESCUES:
Boston Snow Dogs is NOT a RESCUE - its a recreational dog club that strives to promote a healthy relationship with your pet. We advocate rescueing & fostering - together with MUSH we are helping Siberians in our state find forever homes!!
MUSH, Inc., the Massachusetts Union for Siberian Huskies, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) approved corporation that offers support to the Siberian Husky community through its websites, FREE services, vast resources, and extensive experience in all phases of Husky rescue and parenting.THE HUSKY EXCHANGE - Dedicated to helping owners find new homes for their Siberian Huskies in the state of Massachusetts http://www.mushdogs.org/
PLEASE VIEW SEE RECENT LISTINGS POSTED -> http://www.mushdogs.org/mu08_004.htm
Please note that MUSH and The Husky Exchange are unable to list dogs from outside of Massachusetts unless a Massachusetts Shelter or Rescue Organization approved to handle out-of-state adoptions is involved in the animal's placement.
"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." ~Unknown~
"A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn't care if you're not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller, not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector.” ~Louis Sabin
