Kimi, Our Alaskan Malamute, wears a GoPro Camera

We were canoeing on a lake near Yellowstone National Park and put a GoPro camera on one of the dogs, Kimi our Alaskan Malamute. The dogs ran through the brush and swam out to the canoe a few times. A second GoPro camera was used to shoot some underwater shots of the dog swimming.  We also used an iPhone to capture the dogs swimming alongside the canoe.

This first video has been edited with several cuts pieced together and a background music track added.  It is about 3 minutes 23 seconds in length.  Posted to YouTube.

This second video is about 8 minutes and 45 seconds long and has not been edited.  It shows Kimi's movements with the GoPro camera connected to a a Fetch harness running through the brush , swimming out to the canoe and greeting us back at the takeout point at the end.  The GoPro is enclosed in a waterproof case and the sound is generally muffled.  But the sounds of the brush and rain hitting the camera and Kimi whining when she sees the canoe are interesting.    Posted to YouTube.
