Sled dogs are arguably the greatest endurance athletes on the planet. Dog-powered sports include well-known races, such as the Iditarod, that get nearly all of the media attention, but there is so much more. For many, this movie will open your eyes to a fast growing international phenomenon that is generally known as "dog powered sports." And what is Dog Power? It’s a passion shared. Dozens of dog breeds, men, women, young, old, worldclass athletes from all nationalities and athletes with disabilities are taking to the world’s landscapes and shattering the horizon. This film takes you to the frontier of sled dog sports and gives you an introduction to the world’s fastest sprint sled dogs, their human teammates, and the incredible variety of dog powered sports they are involved in. You will meet a diverse group of dogs and humans who share the common passion of living, working, and playing together in the ultimate manifestation of the human/animal bond. Until now, knowledge of the people, dogs, and the possibilities of dog power has been relatively inaccessible to the average dog lover. Join the movement and connect with the international dog powered sports family.
