Look of Sled Dog Racing

The race venue is at a ranch covered with snow, and courses are built on the snow. The sled dog racing class distance and number of dogs, and each teams compete on speed. A person called "Musher" controls the dogs, and is important to synchronize dog's timing. When I watched the racing, the dogs became completely exhausted immediately if they did not synchronize the timing. In addition, it is important for the musher to kick up the snowy ground, too. By the way, running dogs in their best looked very cute, and my favorite is a fluffy Siberian husky.
