PSDSA Mission
Our mission is to encourage and promote the sport of running sled dogs and skijoring,
both recreationally and competitively, by providing education on dog care, equipment, and training.
Our focus is directed toward the safe and humane use of dogs in harness, good sportsmanship, and camaraderie among those who participate in meetings, demonstrations, gatherings and races.


The Pacific Sled Dog and Skijor Association (PSDSA) was formed in 2007
by the merger of the Southern Oregon Sled Dog club and the Cascade Skijoring Alliance. 

Did you know that PSDSA sponsors the Chemult Sled Dog Races, Bachelor Butte Dog Derby, Mush without Slush and the LaPine Mushing Weekend?  Do you want to learn more about the sport or share your wealth of information and experience? Interested in keeping sled dog racing and skijoring a vibrant sport in Central Oregon? Come be part of the PSDSA.

Bend Bulletin coverage of the La Pine Mushing Weekend 

11/8-10/2013 annual "La Pine Mushing Weekend" in La Pine, OR. I apologize that this is the first official announcement of the event on the lists, when usually I start putting word out in April....... Many of you who are "repeat offenders" have already made your plans and reservations.... for those of you who haven't, come join us and be prepared for a fun-filled, dog running, story swapping weekend! There is no "fee" for the event but there will be a small "chip in" for the meeting hall costs.

The official event is on Saturday, Nov 9th, and Sunday, Nov 10th . Many of us will be arriving on Friday, the 8th, to get set up and ready for a fun-filled weekend. Since that Monday is the Veteran’s Day holiday, a lot of us will stay and run dogs on Monday morning before heading home.

Remember to manage your dogs so that they are reasonably quiet while in camp and also remember to fill in holes and pick up poop or straw in your campsite; we want to remain welcome guests!
