Sled Dogs

Sled dogs are work dogs that are used to pull a sled over snow or ice with dog harnesses and lines. This is called “mushing”. The group of dogs  is called a “team”, and the person directing the dog team is called, a “musher”. Historically, sled dog teams were used for transportation and moving loads, but now they are used for recreation. The dogs used are called huskies.
