A group of sled dogs is called a "Team" of sled dogs.
the best breeds of dogs for a sled team would probably be huskies.
When running in the Iditarod race, there are a maximum of 16 dogs allowed on a team. When the racer crosses over the finish line, there must be at least a minimum of 6 dogs pulling the sled to win. They may begin with as few as 12 dogs.
The dogs closest to the sled are called wheel dogs. They must be the strongest dogs on your team. Then all the dogs in the middle are called team dogs. They are usually the fastest dogs. In front is of course your lead dogs. They respond to your commands. Directly behind them are the swing dogs. They help turn the sled. Here is a layout.
