AnswerDear Zena,
Are there any sled related activities for Alaskan Malamutes if you only have one? Most of the activities that I have read about include at least two or more dogs and I only own one.

Dear Jessica,

There is a pulling competition that involves only one dog, Alaskan Malamute or otherwise. During these competitions, the dog pull bags of dog food mounted on a sled. The dog that can pull the most bags of dog food usually wins what they can pull. It adds up.

In our area of Canada there is a competition called Skijoring whereby the dog is tethered to a skier and the two of them race around a track in a skiing style closely resembling cross-country skiing.

If you were interested in any other types of competitions, you could probably check with a local Alaskan Malamute club. They may have some other suggestions.

Sincerely Zena & Zippy
