|Straw in storage|
Musher use straw for bedding in the dog houses and 'boxes' on the dog truck. The straw provides some insulation and cushion that the dogs really appreciate. When the straw bedding breaks down or becomes wet and 'yucky' it's simply replaced with some more. As a general rule, I expect to go through about 1 bale of straw per dog each season, but this year I bought extra, as I plan to do more camping with the dogs and will probably need more straw for that purpose.
That was a major task on my "honey do" list, as I really can't call myself prepared until I have enough straw on hand to get through the entire winter.
