Most people assume that since sled dogs have such thick fur that they can stay warm in even the coldest of temperatures but in reality the sled dogs need help staying warm in the cold, just like you or me. It may sound a bit silly but it is not uncommon for sled dogs to be fitted for special jackets that hug the body and keep heat from escaping. Most dogs wear booties on their feet.
