Sled dog

Sled dogs (or sleigh dogs) are work dogs that are used to pull a sled over snow or ice by means of dog harnesses and lines. This is called “mushing”, the group of dogs collectively is called a “team”, and the person directing the dog team, a “musher”. Historically, sled dog teams were used for transportation and moving loads. Today, sled dogs are used mostly for recreation.
