Formerly called “walkers” or “wood runners”, the sled drivers are nowadays called “mushers”. Why? Because previously, the word “walk” was used to give to the dogs the order to move forward. Later, “walk” was transformed in “mush” by English Canadians, and led to the terms “mushing” and “musher “.
In Rocroi Andorra, we have three permanent mushers: Julian, Albert and Brei. They work exclusively with dogs and are the ones who take care of them day by day.
