Dog Power. It’s a passion shared. Dozens of dog breeds, men, women, young, old, world class 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.
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. Learn about the international phenomenon of canicross, bike & scooterjoring, skijoring, cart, sprint and middle distance sled dog racing. Meet world champions including Egil Ellis and Lena Boysen Hillestad, as well as Swedish born adaptive musher Taina Teras. Dog Power Movie is a powerful look into the incredibly deep bond that forms between humans and canines as they train, play and race together. You might never look at your household dog the same way again.
