Dog-Sled Racing

 

Back In January 1975, just 25 teams competed in the first dog-sled races at Todtmoos in Germany’s Black Forest region. The popularity of the sport grew quickly and the World Championships held here in 2003 drew 321 mushers with about 2500 dogs from 21 nations Todtmoos has now become something of a dog-sled Mecca and you can even enrol for a musher course. 
These photographs from the 2005 International Dog-Sled Races show just how much fun can be had at the “tail end” of a team of very determined dogs.
