Huskies raring to go in the snow

Husky owner Debbie Windsor said both she and the dogs love the snow

BBC Look East's Mike Liggins visited Debbie Windsor's husky racing team in Norfolk to find out how they are making the most of the snowy conditions.

The dogs are exercised four times a week in the winter using an engineless quad bike, but during competitions they pull a three-wheeled rig.

Voice commands are used to direct the dogs and steer the quad.

"We've just done two miles with the dogs and they're just absolutely raring to go again," said Debbie.
