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.
Dogs can be as young as one year and as old as 12. Generally they range from 2 -7 or 8 years of age. After retiring from racing many Iditarod dogs continue doing training runs as "teachers" for the younger dogs.
