Dog Sledging Training

The most common breed of dog used for Dog Sledging is the Alaskan Husky. They are well known for their strong hearts, insulating undercoats and tough feet.

However in most cases, if you are not a Professional or Experinced Driver, you will be provided with different dogs that are less aggressive and more placid.

Training Sledging Dogs starts at a young age, about 8 weeks where it is advised to put a light collar and lead on the puppy for a few minutes a day. By 10 weeks he can start wearing a harness for a short time every day. By 4 months old, the puppy is ready to pull a lightweight object around as it goes over the ground to get him used to pulling objects behind him.

Common Injuries

Due to the typically cold climate where this sport takes place, the most obvious of these is Hypothermia.

Hours of Sledging in freezing conditions can lead to major problems if you are not wearing the adequate clothes.

Additionally, you may be required to travel through water. If that is the case, make sure that you replace any wet clothes, especially footwear, with dry ones as soon as possible to avoid getting frostbite.

It is also vitally important to ensure that you keep a healthy relationship with your dogs and tend to their needs first, before taking care of yourself, the dogs are, after all, what powers your vehicle, your only means of getting around.
