Alaskan Malamute

Kennels of Alaskan Malamutes from the Alaskan Malamute Working Association have been providing insight into the breed to injured service personnel and veterans as they take part in a competitive Sled Dog Scurry, as part of the Phoenix Winter Games at the Recovery Centre in Catterick.

The theme of the games which are based around the Winter Olympics and Paralympics, is fun with a competitive edge and teams of soldiers and veterans from the various Recovery Centres across the country including Colchester, Plymouth, Tidworth and Catterick make up the competing teams.

Alaskan Malamutes are freight dogs, weighing about 40 kilos and by their nature they travel long distances across a variety of terrains, in often bitterly cold and wet weather conditions which makes them ideally suited to pulling dog sleds.
