Question by : How much should one sled dog pull?
I’m starting to train my male Siberian Husky to pull a sled, been working on basic commands for now. Next I will be hooking him up to some weight to further the training. However I’ve been researching and can’t seem to find how much weight a one dog sled can pull. He weights about 60lbs, very athletic, but still I don’t want to over work him. Anyone train sled dogs and could help me out with this? Thanks in advance!

I don’t own sled dogs, but I found this link when looking for high fat dog food for my dogs to take on a pack trip. It is used by sled dog teams and they have some links to contact them:
