Sledding is where it all started, it is the sport (mode of transport) that inspired all other disciplines. With sledding, a team of dogs pull a sled, driven by a human. With sledding there are Sprint, Mid Distance and Long Distance races.
Skijor, simply put, is canicross on snow, but instead of running, the human skis. There is also Pulka, which is the same as skijor, but there is a small sled (a Pulk) between the dog and the skier.
