In January, the Aviemore Sled Dog Rally takes place.  Dogs race in teams of two to eight over a forest course.  First held back in the mid 1980s, today the event in Aviemore is the largest husky race in the UK, with a barking 1,000 dogs and 200 teams - that's an awful lot of woof power.  Alaskan malamutes, samoyeds, Greenland dog and Canadian Eskimo dogs usually take part in the event and could reach up to speeds of 20 mph. 
 
The Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain organises the race, which is a growing sport in the UK. If you want to give it a go yourself, the good news is that there's an opportunity to try husky rides in Gloucestershire & in Aviemore itself.

Here are some husky experiences in the UK - plus some husky dog-sledding holidays, if you'd like to go further afield!  IntotheBlue list a couple of husky gift experiences for the husky lover in your life, in Sussex (near Horsham) and in Gloucestershire.

Husky Rides, Sussex
£120.00
Sussex
Available from Into the Blue
Enjoy the thrill of having a pack of fun-loving huskies pulling you along on a sledge through the nature trail at this farm centre near Horsham in West Sussex.  The huskies here adore running together, so they often howl with delight as they know they are about to go a run.  Your'll pass other farm residents on your way - llamas, cows, sheep, even Kasper the donkey!  Your hosts Rob and Christine are both dedicated and experienced Siberian husky mushers and handlers. You will be introduced to the dogs, shown how the sledge works and then taken off for a 25 minute husky ride taking in the Sussex countryside as you go. After your ride you'll be invited to watch a fascinating short film on husky racing, where the dogs are at their competitive best!  Click here for more information
