Alaskan Husky Pictures (also known as sled dogs)

As you will see by the alaskan husky pictures below, sled dogs come in many shapes and sizes. Since they are not AKC registered, and are bred for pulling a dog sled, they do not have specific breeding guidelines. That said, Mushers are very specific in what makes a good racing sled dog. Breeding lines, athleticism, drive, and speed are important alaskan husky traits in Mushing circles.

The smaller dogs usually weigh around 40-55 pounds, and often used for distance racing.

The medium sized sized sled dog weighs approximately 55-65 pounds and are often used for sprint racing.

The larger dog weigh in around 65-80 pounds and are used for weight pulling.

These are just guidelines A sled dog of any size can be used for each of these categories. Conformation, willingness to do the job, and effort are also strong determining factors.
