LH2BH actually is what they call in urban slang meaning Live Hardcore to be Hardcore. That is probably the perfect description for Bill WooFDriver Helman’s Life but he prefers using this LH2BH meaning Loving Huskies to be Happy as to not give others the wrong idea. You see, which if you don’t know yet, you will discover after checking out this website that WooFDriver, though he is Hardcore it’s all in a positive manner and his motives are with the best intentions to give Dogs the best possible lives and share his knowledge with others to promote healthy lifestyles filled with endless excitement enjoyed daily in some way with the companionship of Dogs. You might also understand the LH2BH meaning as Live Healthy to be Healthy or Live Harmoniously 2B Happy! The video here is the kind of ADVENTURES WooFDriver does with his Dogs like running the DogPowered Go-Cart at night so there is less traffic and he can therfore share and enjoy the sights, smells, & sounds, of Washington DC! I don’t think anybody has ever MUSHED a team of Dogs through The National Mall past the Lincoln Memorial & Washington Monument and than towards the US Capitol…only WooFDriver would do this!

This website is all about the lengths one man (Bill “WooFDriver” Helman) goes to in order to give his Dogs the ultimate Husky lifestyle, purging their insatiable appetite for engagement with EXTREME adventures while exploring history and nature together. The top video he is running the Dogs with Horses (to really excite the Dogs) and give them a most intresting and engaging expierience. In the video below we are Free-Ranging (OFF LEASH ROAMING). Almost anybody who knows Huskies will tell you rightfully so to NEVER EVER let them OFF-LEASH as they will run away! That is the truest of statements as they are very PREY DRIVEN and INDEPENDENT so they can’t be trusted OFF-LEASH unless they are trained by someone as knowledgable and capable as Bill! For More about Bill’s TRAINING SYSTEM CLICK HERE. OFF-LEASH will truly give them what they yearn for as oyu see all ther Fun they are having. By the way that is an ELECTRIC ATV. Bill usues an ELECTRIC ATV for a few reasons and you can read about that HERE
He does this for the “high” of enjoying the Dogs so happy with maximum excitement. More importantly is the health benefits for them from physical fitness to thier psychological necessity of exercising their instinctual traits. This life is full of EXTREME traveling to new places with the Dogs in usually uncharted territory not knowing what we will run into including other animals and conditions BUT working together in unison with the Dogs to conquer obstacles that present themselves forging a most incredible bond of canine and mankind!

This Husky Lifestyle Bill “WooFDriver” Helman lives wouldn’t be possible without very specialized equipment as to do these activities as well as equipment to travel safely and comfortably with the Dogs. Also needed is a team of experts and qualified people that most importantly love Dogs and are not afraid of some of the situations we roam
through and they really need an overwhelming sense of adventure! The video above is acustom built 6 Door FORD Excursion outfitted especially for the Dogs and long distance travle. Please be sure to watch all the videos in the playlist to see more about this most fascinating “Jumbo-Jet” Truck. For More about his EQUIPMENT CLICK HERE. The video below is of some snowy adverse conditions we found ourselves in. Witht he help of Bill’s Team “The WooFDriver Pit Crew” they were able to give the Dogs the conditions that they yearn for!

Bill “WooFDriver” Helman does this stuff all the time BUT different temperatures require different Adevnturing ways. You see, Huskies and all dogs are inefficient at cooling themselves becuase they don’t sweat, at least in any kind of effective way so they don’t have a good way to cool themselves. Most people therfore and rightfully so don’t exercise/work thier Dogs in the warmer months with their high potential to overheat which can be fatal… BUT you guessed it, and quite frankly this is why this website is pass-coded (as to avoid people with very jadded and close minded views) Bill has found successful ways to exercise his Huskies year round including the warmer months using equipment in creative ways. You see he even (when conditions warant) he uses a misting system to mist the dogs as they exercise and he most importantly makes sure to get their underside where their internal organs are. Bill believes the fine mist will act like sweat on the Dogs fur and as it evaporates will help cool. For more on Bill’s MISTING SYSTEM CLICK HERE. In the winter of course Huskies and other northern breed dogs are built for temperatures well below zero, so the biggest challenge is for himself and his human team to keep warm as the Huskies are in their element. there are a few Dog cosiderations such as what are called “ice balls” forming between a Dog’s Toes and in Bill’s case because his Dogs are a “Wooly” coat (double coated long hair) if they get wet while running in cold temps it can freeze on thier hair and create problems as well.
Bill also will run the Dogs at night using specialized InfraRed goggles and equipment for visibillty. He does this again in the warmer temperatures as the nightime is uaully the coolest part of the day without the sun visible. He has found the Dogs really enjot the nightime runs as they have some Infrared (night vision) seeing capabillites. It can be a bit more challangeing as nocturnal critters are roaming around at night but the Dog’s help sensing thier presence and Bill can have a look with his Infrared scopes. Bill actually also enjoys the mysterious darkness they will find themselves in! the vidoe below was our very first filmed Nightime Run i nickname “Midnight Mushers!” I have done this for many of years before this video!

Here is one of the many World Class Musicians I colloborate with to bring my lyrics to life!
Bill “WooFDriver” Helman does other activities and has other interest but almost all of them involve Dogs! He is an expert Martial Artist formally trained in 2 styles – TaekwonDo and Gumdo (a Korean Sword Art). Something that most people don’t know is that WooFDriver’s mentor and teacher of all his Dog knowledge was actually a Grand Master (one of the highest rankings) in the Martial Arts and they would sometimes collaborate thier different Martial Art styles. This mentor (Jon) main style was Bando (A Burmese Martial Art). They would both take thier Dogs out for a walk and Jon would be constantly training WooFDriver about Dog aspects and behaviors as he also would talk about some of his storied past of being a Master Shutzand (protection Dog Trainer) as he trained many Police and Protection Dogs and the many Dogs who had touched his life over the years. When the walk was over the Dogs would stay with Jon & Bill as they would exchange ideas and actually use pads to catch kicks and hand strikes to get a physical workout as well!
This video is vintage from back in the day so please excuse the quality. Here is Jon and me doing a quick outing with the Dogs. You can see his 2 German Shepherds which were Shutzhund trained.
When doing something like this which appears to a Dog as someone is striking at you or you are defending yourself you must keep in mind how your Dog may react. So a Dog might try to defend its owner by attacking the person they’re working out with. Of course the Dog has good intentions but this could prove to be a bad situation. So they needed to let the dogs know that this was acceptable behavior between Jon and Bill as to not stress them out. A definite learning experience for all. In addition many Martial Arts Systems have techniques or are even sometimes the entire system is based upon animal like movement. This is because animals move and defend themselves in some of the most efficient manner’s that us humans can learn a lot from animals. Not to dive too deep into this subject here but just imagine a Dog and how they shake when wet, the speed in which they shake their body is executed with expert muscle control meaning proper relaxation and tension converging at the exact timing for them to be able to do this so effortlessly and effectively. Animal technique and movement is discussed at more detail on my Martial Arts website and I have even written a song about it called Natures Ninjas, which is the video on top.

Bill also writes songs to be almost like a musical blog. He is Dyslexic (has a learning disibillity) and has found that writing songs help him better articualte his knowledge and has written more than 100 songs most are Dog Centric. CLICK HERE FOR HIS ENTIRE LIBRARY OF TUNES! Below is the song Bill wrote for Jon, the lyrics are below that.
This is the story of Jon The Man that gave WooFDriver a plan And all the means to succeed on his dog dreams and lifestyle he has evolved!! Jon would teach WooFDriver the most important needs to negotiate almost any scene that might convene on his dog themed schemes!!
WooFDriver met Jon when czar and Hudson were around 5 years old!! They were great dogs but he had no real control which meant they sometimes had a somewhat boring lull!! Jon’s role and his goal was to train the boys to respect WooFDriver’s commands and respond to his demands!! Jon was regarded to most as the best dog trainer on our coast!! I must say my doubt was pretty stout to train a husky to obey its owner was considered an impossible task that if cracked would still not last!! I had heard the stories and knew the state of husky traits which told of their fates and would so relate to their uncontrollable state!!
After just my second lesson under Jon’s discretion we were walking my boys leash free and they were staying with me. This was my wildest dreams coming to fruition because of Jon’ s ambition, Intuition and in incredible system!!
Jon showed me how and wow!! Now my boys were my best pals!! Their behavior would enable me to take them almost anywhere they were allowed to be, and we could do so much more than we ever thought before!!
But my best find from all of our dog time was the friendship Jon an I aligned!!
Thanks Jon for your incredible wisdom, guidance, and this whole alliance!! You have helped me define my life and journey from these tremendous learnings!!
Bill “WooFDriver” Helman again is always in search of the best for his Dogs and that includes their comfort and relaxation. So he has built a pool with specific dog access including a wading area for them to quickly cool down and play especially for those of his Dogs who don’t want to swim. The pool also has a waterfall with a cave and a stream to provide even more water access and exotic type areas for even more of his curious Dogs.
When not Adventuring he also like to give the Dogs some DOG time with each other so he has designed his very own WooFPark! Most of the equipment he purchased from a Dog Park Manufacturer as to ensure this equipment would be “Husky Proof” which means it needs to be EXTRA Rugged! In addition he has incorporated some of his own designs and fun such as a floorless tent to allow the Dogs to dig until their hearts content without it turning into a mud pit! For More about the WooFPark CLICK HERE
He also is an avid motorcycle rider and again in his quest to spend as much time with his dogs he has designed a way to include them in his riding. With his mind on safety this was a bit of a challenging task as he will only wanted to do this in the most safest matter possible. So with a specially designed motorcycle seat custom built with a three point harness system that secures the Dogs like a seatbelt would for a human in a car, as well he has very specialized custom designed and built goggles to protect the dogs eyes from the open road and wind. All of his dogs enjoy the riding especially Zarro as he will put his head on Bill’s shoulder as they cruise!
Huskies.DOG is a Portal (Website Directory) for most of my Husky Websites. Please keep in mind these are actually websites that Bill “WooFDriver” Helman has created and there not from some web blogger or someone with none or limited knowledge of Huskies. Everything there has his name on it in some way or another, as he is the Husky EXPERT and RESOURCE for Huskies of the likes most have never seen before.
