All of us at Headwall Sports are excited to announce our first sponsored JH based athlete - Sir Tater Tot of the Tetons! We love dogs (and alliteration, obviously) so decided our first sponsorship would be in the 'canine division'. Long time JHMR Ski Patroller Bob Larson is Tater's trainer and companion.
Tater is just starting his training regime to become a mountain search & rescue avalanche dog. Over the next year we are going to be providing material support and documenting his growth, training and accomplishments
Next post we'll cover Bob's thinking and process that led him to Tater.
