As the musher rounds the corner at the very start of the video, you hear him shout, “Good boy, Pee Wee, good boy!” And then he mashes a snow-clogged boot onto the brake to slow the sled. Dog sledding in Breckenridge was the most fun thing we did on our trip. Before you go all Social Animal Justice Warrior and say it’s abuse, go watch these dogs work and then tell me that’s not something they haven’t been bred for thousands of years to do. It’s in their DNA. What is abuse is getting a Husky or Malamute and shoving them in an apartment in Miami.
