Photizo lights up 35th Aviemore Sled Dog Rally

Photizo Light Therapy is co-sponsors the 35th Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain Aviemore Sled Dog Rally, taking place on January 27-28.

The race is now the largest event of its kind in the UK, with over 1,000 sled dogs and 250 mushers. Organised by the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain, in conjunction with Forestry Commission Scotland, the race is run on forest trails around the beautiful Loch Morlich, in the shadow of the Cairngorm mountains.

Photizo’s Vetcare is no stranger to the ‘sled dog’ community, which began in 2013 when Kaz and Pete Jones from the multi-award winning ‘Team Coldfeet’ met Ruth Milner, MD of Danetre Health, the UK distributor of Photizo Vetcare.

Intrigued by the potential of modern Phototherapy offered by the non invasive and portable Photizo device, Kaz and Pete immediately decided their Husky team would benefit from regular ‘light therapy’.

Kaz Jones explains: “Using Photizo as part of our healthcare routine to keep Team Coldfeet in pole position couldn’t be simpler. We’ve so impressed by its effects to re-oxidise the key muscle groups prior to and after a race.


"We also use Photizo as a preventative tool, and to heal minor injuries that just happen to Huskies, even if they’re out playing in the garden! What’s great is its portability and that there’s no need to wear laser goggles because it is LED light.”

Kaz and Pete Jones of Team Coldfeet are Brand Ambassadors of Photizo and have helped spread the word amongst the Siberian Husky sled dog circuit.

Steve Rooke, Co-Founder of British Siberian Husky Racing Association, commented: “We originally bought a Photizo to help with a very active 7 year old girl who developed arthritis in her pasterns but still loved running. This was on the advice of both our doggie chiropractor and another musher who uses Photizo and had seen good results using it. 


"Our girlie took to the treatments immediately, they're non-invasive, possibly a little soothing and it also became a bit of 'one-on-one' time with me after running!


"Naturally we started using it on the other ‘Sibes’ in our kennel after heavy or fast training runs when we could see they were a little stiff and even started using it on scratches, nicks and wounds. Would I want to be without it? Absolutely not!"
