Sled dogs have coexisted and cooperated in partnership with humans for many thousands of years in the northern regions of North America and Siberia. Archeological evidence puts the earliest date at more than 4000 years ago. Some anthropologists suggest that human habitation and survival in the Arctic would not have been possible without sled dogs. Sled dogs can have long coats or short, brown eyes or blue (or one of each), upright or down ears. Sled dogs must be intelligent, trainable, and social. They must get along with teammates and have good house and kennel manners. They must know not to bite snow or chew lines and how to stand to be harnessed and have protective boots put on their feet.
