Sled dog race begins in Canada

Dogs of a different kind race in Canada

Betting fans have become accustomed to seeing greyhound races, however an exciting dog race of another kind is underway in Canada.

The Canadian Challenge sled dog races have two separate categories, for teams of 8 dogs and 12 dogs. The race is over a 500 kilometre track, starting at Prince Albert, passing through the Saskatchewan wilderness before finishing in La Ronge. The dogs and their leaders are tested to the limit, taking in lake trails and extreme weather conditions, as well as sections which require them to pass through dense bush land.

Jillian Taylor is a previous winner of the contest, and spoke further of the challenges faced by those looking to take home the $6,000 top prize. She said: “When you haven’t really slept, it’s really challenging. It can be hard to keep focused and make decisions. You just have to push through it and know there will be sleep at the end."

Virtual dog racing offers simpler excitement

While the Canadian Challenge is certainly an exciting event, most betting fans will be far more at home with the challenge of virtual dog racing. With races lasting a matter of moments and instant action on hand throughout the day, the fun of virtual dog racing never stops. This means you do not have to sacrifice any sleep to be a virtual greyhound champion, and the potential payouts to winners are just as rewarding.

The Virtual Dog Racing website allows access to the very best sources of virtual greyhound racing, including details of any special offers and promotions which are currently running.
