Dog Training

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

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

Training the Dogs starts at a young age, about eight weeks, when it is advised to put a light collar and lead on the puppy for a few minutes daily. By four months old, the puppy is ready to pull a lightweight object around as it goes over the ground to get him used to drawing things behind him. By ten weeks, he can start wearing a harness for a short time every day.

Common Injuries 

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

Hours of Sleddng in freezing conditions can lead to significant problems if you are not wearing good clothes.

Additionally, you may be required to travel by 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.

Keeping a healthy relationship with your animals and tending to their needs before caring for yourself is also essential.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

If you have been Dog Sledding before and may have had an injury or accident whilst participating in Dog Sledding, you must declare this when purchasing a policy.

We have several providers who can offer travel insurance, including Dog Sledding, if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
