SLED DOG INFO

 

Our goal is to increase awareness of mushing and sled dog sports as an active and healthy lifestyle for both mushers and their dogs; especially for the dogs, as they were born and bred to run!

Northern sled dog breeds need plenty of exercise, and they thrive on an active relationship with the musher and other members of the sled dog team.

Mushing is a time-honored tradition, reaching back to the glory days of Leonhard Seppala, Scotty Allan, and others who first saw the value in good dog care and promoted best practices such as proper food and housing, training and conditioning, medical help when needed, and care standards to provide a basic quality of life which all sled dogs deserve.

Today sled dog sports are increasingly popular around the world, and the guidelines and standards of sled dog care are evolving and developing to meet the needs of today’s racing and recreational mushers and their dogs. We will strive to keep the best and most current information available on this site for the education and encouragement of anyone interested in mushing and sled dog sports.

This website is a team effort! A handful of sled dog enthusiasts, including mushers who have run the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod, came together to build this website as a way of increasing knowledge and awareness of sled dog sports. It is our hope that this effort will encourage appreciation, education, and support for mushing and for the beautiful sled dogs who make it all possible.
