Pine Barrens Dryland Run

  • Mt. Misery Site Pemberton, NJ USA (map)

While the Dalakians of Gerick Siberians are better known in the breed conformation ring, it was through Dick's hard work many years ago, drafting and lobbying for NJ Bill A1509 which legalized sled dog racing and other dog related activities that had been outlawed in NJ. Dick helped make it possible for all of us to enjoy this sport in NJ, and our dogs can enjoy what they were bred to do.
