For centuries, Northern people used their dogs to pull sledges.  From this tradition came sled dog racing, believed to have started among native peoples of Northern Asia. Today, this worldwide sport includes teams of all sizes for both professional competition and family recreation, and race distances from short sprints to long distances, such as the Iditarod and Yukon Quest.
