The Mechanics of Sled Dog Racing
Many people agree that a dog is man's best friend. This is best exemplified through the sport of sled dog racing, which pits both man and dog against competitors and the fury of nature's elements. It is a winter dog sport that is popular in the Arctic regions of Russia, Canada, the United States, and several European countries. This sport involves a competition of teams of specially bred and trained dogs that pull a sled with a musher standing on the sled's runners. Despite its name, the race does not usually involve a mass start. Rather, it is organised as a timed start, meaning each team starts one after another in equal time intervals, usually around two to five minutes. Timed starts are preferred because it simplifies logistics such as preventing many teams of excited dogs from fighting each other at the starting line. The teams compete against the clock rather than each other and the team that completes the course at the least time is declared the winner.

Sled dog racing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Redirected from Dogsled racing Jump to: navigation search A ten-dog team of Seppala Siberian Sleddogs in tandem hitch on a frozen Mud Lake, a small lake west of Lake Laberge and the Klondike Highway Sled dog racing (sometimes termed dog sled racing ) is a winter dog sport most popular in the Arctic regions of the United States Canada Russia , and some European countries . It involves the timed competition of teams of sleddogs that pull a sled with the dog driver or musher standing on the runners. The team completing the marked course in the least time is judged the winner. A sled dog race was a demonstration sport at the 1932 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York and again at the Olympics in Oslo , but it did not gain official event status. Sled dogs, known also as sleighman dogs, sledge dogs, or sleddogs, are a highly trained dog type that are used to pull a dog sled , a wheel-less vehicle on runners, over snow or ice, by means of harnesses and lines.
edit Races
Sled dog races include "sprint" races over relatively short distances of 4 to 25 miles, mid-distance races from 28 to 200 miles, or long-distance races of 200 to over 1000 miles. Sprint races frequently are two or three-day events with heats run on successive days with the same dogs over the same course. Mid-distance races are either heat races of 14 to 80 miles per day, or continuous races' of 100 to 200 miles. (These categories are informal and may overlap to a certain extent.) Long-distance races may be continuous or stage races, in which participants run a different course each day, usually from a central staging location.

Sled Dog Breeds And Sled Dog Racing
Modern sled dog racing produces some interesting variations on what many consider an addictive, adrenaline filled sport. Learn about the sled dog breeds, and the breed most typically used in racing, the Alaskan husky.
Enlarge Image Sled dog breeds are characterized by endurance, strength, and intelligence. They are usually medium to larger dogs, with a very muscular build, and have helped mankind transport supplies in times before the automobile.
Nowadays, sled dog breeds are found as pets, as well as trained to participate in sled dog racing.
Sled dogs were developed to withstand very low temperatures. Their coats have a double layer, with the undercoat acting as insulation against the ice and snow. Because they have such thick coats, they need regular brushing and grooming. They also shed a lot, especially at the beginning of summer when they lose a lot of their undercoat. This could be a problem for people with dog allergies.
Traditional sled dog breeds include the Siberian Husky, the Alaskan Malamute, the Chinook, the Sakhalin Husky, the Canadian Eskimo dog, the Seppala Siberian sled dog, the Tamaskan husky, the Samoyed, the Eurohound, the Mackenzie River husky, and the Greenland dog.

Alaskan Huskies are the dogs that compete most successfully in long-distance sled dog races. These animals descend from northern breeds such as Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes. Today's racing dogs are smaller and faster, bred for speed and endurance. Soldotna Animal Hospital is one of the locations for pre-race bloodwork and ECG checkups prior to the Iditarod. Dr. Bowser has worked as a trail veterinarian for the Iditarod, the Copper Basin 300 and is currently head veterinarian for the Tustumena 200, and Iditarod qualifier held here on the Kenai Peninsula. Soldotna Animal Hospital cares for many dogs that are involved in recreational mushing and skijouring activities. We also provide veterinary care for competitive dog mushers such as Mitch Seavey (Iditarod champion 2004)

The Topic:
Sled Dog Racing
Easier - People from the polar regions have used dogs and sleds for a long time. Working dogs were used in everyday life to protect and in hunting. But most of all, dogs and sleds were used to carry food, products, and other things. The first sled dog races may have been among native people as they dashed their dog teams across the frozen ice fields. Sled dog racing was continued by immigrant trappers, miners, freight haulers, and settlers. Harder - Indigenous people of the far North regions were dependent on sled dogs for protection, companionship, hunting, trapping, and transportation for thousands of years. In the more recent European immigrations to North America, newcomers quickly saw the value of working sled dogs. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police started running dog-team patrols in the northern frontiers as early as 1873. Mail teams later delivered the news to outlying communities. Inland settlements were dependent on sled dog freight haulers. Explorers such as Byrd, Peary, and Amundsen relied on sled dogs in their exploration of frozen wastelands. Today, few of the inhabitants of the Far North are dependent on dogs for basic survival. However, sled dog racing continues in the United States, Canada, Northern Europe, the United Kingdom, Japan, and other locations around the world.

In 1949 the Alaskan Sled Dog and Racing Association (ASDRA) was formed to promote and preserve the great Alaskan tradition of dog mushing. ASDRA's committed volunteers have developed and maintained the dedicated sled dog trails in Far North Bicentennial Park and the Campbell Tract for 60 years. The non-profit club puts on internationally recognized races from January 1 through the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous in February of each year. Race fees and trail fees are used to maintain the club trailhead facilities and groom the trails in Far North Bicentennial Park. The 20 miles of trail known as Tozier Track begins and ends at a 10-acre trailhead site owned by ASDRA. A strong junior mushing program provides education and winter recreation for mushers from 4 to 17 years. Members sponsor events sharing their sport with the community and tourists.
