The World Sleddog Association is grateful for the excellent cooperation with Happy Dog and Uli Maczuck. Thanks to this collaboration, a lot of equipment for the WSA could be purchased.

But also the Musher was thought. Thanks to the sponsorship of Happy Dog, two beautiful start numbers could be created for the EM Dryland in Lauf as well as for the EM Snow in Inzell, which like the WSA events were able to take the musher home with them.

Thanks Uli,
Thank you HAPPY DOG
