Dog teams were hard work for
the team leader, as well as getting their food and making sure
they had enough of it and on time, the dogs would need their
winter quarters cleaning and then of course the was an awful
lot of tummy tickling and generally making the dogs feel they
were an important part of the pack so they gave it their all.
The dogs here have stopped and
been staked out for the night. Each dog has some movement from
a central line, but not enough to reach the next dog to avoid
fights, such an arrangement is known as a "span".
