the ultimate sled dogs
They are energetic, high endurance, resilient dogs that can run at a top speed of up to 50 kilometres (30 miles) per hour. Huskies conditioned for racing can run for more than 160 kilometres (100 miles) per day for 10 days in a row, and they can easily consume up to 10,000 calories per day.
The story of the Huskies starts in the Arctic region of Siberia in Russia. Around 3000 years ago, the semi-nomadic Chukchi people sought to breed the ideal sled dog when they were expanding their hunting grounds. The Chukchi dogs had endurance; they could survive on small amounts of food and were able to handle extremely cold temperatures. Siberian Huskies are believed to be the closest breed to the original Chukchi dogs.
