Dog harness

Dog harness

Ricky Andrew was the last trapper in Tulita to use dog teams on the trapline. This dog collar with a standing iron and harness was made for his lead dog. The wolverine fur tuft on the standing iron is meant to provide inspiration for the other dogs of the team. According to Andrew, the waving fur makes “dogs strong like a wolverine”.
