Commonly used in the early 1900s, dog sleds were often the only means of transporting supplies across the frozen tundras. Although they are still used today in Alaska, Northern Canada, and parts of Russia, they are more commonly seen in the popular sport of racing. The sleds, which can be up to 13 feet long, are pulled by teams of 10 dogs, and can carry up to 1,000 pounds.
