Maija started to ski with dogs 20 years ago. At first she was racing cross country skiing. Then a friend asked her to try to ski with her dog. The last 5 years Maija has skied with her own dogs and taking part in international competitions. Today it's her lifestyle.
“This is big part of my family life. We use almost all freetime to train and race with dogs”.
She hopes that she and the dogs will stay healthy so they can take part in many more competitions in the future.
Rio is the dog that Maija has got many medals with. His parents are from great sleddog families. His life started with injuries and infections, but Maija knew he would turn out to be a good runner. He is also a good hunter.
