Along with a walking challenge - can we add a playing challenge? I ask because there's times where it is pouring down rain here and my girl and I play hide and seek, tug-of-war, and chase around the house - that burns quite a bit of energy, plus helps to keep her stimulated (those huskies NEED to be kept stimulated)! :)

Absolutely. I agree. Huskies are real athletes and they love to run. It's pretty hard to wear them out if you get them out on a regular basis. They've been real motivators for me when I see how happy they are when I take them out, and we get to bond in a whole different way when we do. I can't think of any more faithful exercise partners than our huskies. Hot, cold, wet, dry, beach, mountains, trail, cross country. They're good partners.

I realize this is for weight loss for us and I created this team to unite those of us who love Huskies/mals and mixes so that we would have at least two things in common, love for those breeds and need for weight loss. Well now that we have quite a number of team mates, I think its time to start getting the fitness or weight loss going.
If you have any challenge ideas please add them here or let me know and I will add them.
