Best Answer

A contestant in the Iditarod usually has 12-16 dogs on their sled team at the beginning of the race. If less than 6 dogs are pulling the sled when they cross the finish line, the team will be disqualified.

According to the Iditarod Rules for 2018: "A musher must have at least twelve (12) dogs on the line to start the race. At least five (5) dogs must be on the towline at the finish line."

So a musher must start with at least 12 dogs on the line and must end with at least 5 dogs on the line.

The least amount of dogs you can use in the Iditarod race is about 12 and the most is up to 46 XD

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