A brief history of the Alaskan Sled Dog: Superheroes Without Capes

Dr. Reynolds IWDC 2017 Banff

This presentation will describe the 1925 race for mercy, where a relay of dog teams saved the town of Nome from a diphtheria epidemic. It will also explain their astonishing physiology, and how they are used today to help troubled youth in rural villages find alternatives to substance abuse, depression and suicide.
