Mostly a lot because there are a lot of teams so i know that some teams start out with 18 to 16 dogs but there are some people that when they finish they end with only nine, ten, six dogs left.

How many dogs in the Iditarod race?

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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
