Seppala Siberian Sleddog

History

The Seppala Siberian Sleddog is more like an Arctic breed, with a wolf-like appearance. It took the experts some fifty years to conclude that, the Seppala Siberian Sleddog and the Siberian Husky are two different breeds. It is because of this confusion that the Sleddog was an unstandardised dog breed, and participation in dog shows was still a far-fetched chapter for this breed. Because of the growing popularity of show dogs in recent years, these dogs became hugely popular both as show dogs and also as working dogs.

This breed has a medium sized body, with a long head, a pair of almond-shaped eyes, and a dark nose.They have well-developed shoulder, neck and chest muscles, which helps them to work efficiently as a working dog.
