Kris Hoffman actually has 16 dogs total for the Iditarod race of 2011. All mushers start with 16 dogs

There are no more than 100 mushers in the Iditarod race.

62 mushers entered the 2011 Iditarod

63 mushers began the race, however 9 have scratched.

you have to start with at least 6 dogs and end with at least 6 dogs

in the iditarod you can have a maximum of sixteen dogs and a minamum of twelve dogs!!! most mushers will end up with anywhere from eight to twelve dogs in the end!!!! this is because many mushers will lose dogs when they run away on the trail and because some mushers will leave there dogs at the check point if they are hurt or if they are overly tired. people at the check point will then take care of the dogs at the check point. in the end of the race they are reunited when theyre musher crosss the finish line!!! the iditarod face is a very stressful race but can also be very exciteing and is something thet all great mushers want to do. they may also enter in the Yukon quest race. so wwwwoooooowwwww.................maybe you should try the iditarod.............it could be fun!!! couldn't you just imagine a little two year old mushing a dogsled!!!!!!!!!!ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha wouldn't that be funny!!!!!!!!!!!yyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeehhhhhhhaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A musher can have a maximum of 15 dogs to start the Iditarod race. He must have a least 5 dogs in the harness at the end to officially finish. Dogs can be dropped for many reason such as injury, illness, and attitude issue.

total of 48 in 2011

6 dogs is the minimum number of dogs that you have to finish with in the Iditarod.

The number varies from year to year, but there are never more than 100.
