Base Camp Bigfork’s Team of Inuit Sled Dogs
The main attraction of our operation is our crew of fun loving and hard working Inuit Sled Dogs! This rare breed lives to pull. They have a fascinating history with their connection to the Inuit people as well as the explorers of the Arctic and Antarctica. They are the last remaining aboriginal dog of the Americas and the only domestic animal of the Arctic. The past 100 years have nearly devastated this breed who once numbered over 20,000. Today, about 500 remain and continue to face the struggles of a modern world. It’s been over 1,000 years that the power and stamina of the Inuit Dog was harnessed. Here at Base Camp we are committed to maintaining their legacy as a true working breed.
