Huskies and dog sledging

The husky has indeed been man's best friend, and played a huge part in exploring the continent. In the early years, they were the only effective form of transport other than foot, but eventually reliable mechanized transport became available. They were kept, initially as a back-up and then later for "recreational" purposes. Many generations of Antarctic personnel on scientific bases felt their Antarctic experience was greatly enhanced by the dog's presence, and the dogs provided a valuable psychological outlet. Later, concern that dogs could impact on seals and other wildlife if they escaped led to the remaining dogs being removed. Hedgehog House photographers have been lucky enough to enjoy time with huskies.
