Alaskan husky (sled dog), Denali National Park and Preserve kennel, Alaska, USA.
In Denali National Park and Preserve the only national park in America with a working kennel sled dogs perform essential wintertime duties in a vast expanse of designated Wilderness area. Visit Denali's Alaskan huskies in the park kennels where rangers and dogs demonstrate a traditional Alaskan mode of travel. Sled dogs are important for patrols because snowmobiles are prohibited within the boundaries of the former Mount McKinley National Park. Alaskan huskies (sled dogs) are not a particular breed nor are they crosses of purebred dogs. They are the product of hundreds of years of breeding dogs for running and pulling sleds in cold weather. Alaskan huskies have a strong desire to run and pull, have a thick two-layer coat of fur, a bushy tail, long legs, and great demeanor. Bred for performance rather than looks, huskies vary widely in appearance.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
