Commands:


"Easy" - to slow the tempo
"Gee" - to the right
"Go" or "Heja" - start command for the dogs
"Haw" - to the left

Specialist:


"Sacken" - a dog in the sleigh to give
"Snacks" - Interstop where you feed the dogs energy in the form of small snaks
"Watering" - mainly before the race (1 1/2 - 2 hours before) so that the dogs are adequately supplied with liquid. Just before the start, all dogs of the too much liquid in the body get rid of themselves.
"Stake Out" - the "paddock" of a sledge dog or the area of a musher for his dogs. Here water, fed animals, as well as controls by veterinarians and antidoping are done.
"Trail" - The more or less groomed track on which the race is driven.
"Musher" - the driver of the team
"Doghandler" - the helper of the musher, who takes care of the dogs and helps with the start. This is also important in the races over long distances, where the dog handler moves the vehicles to the next stage leg and also supplies the remaining dogs.

Designation of dogs from front to back:


"Lead Dogs" - dogs that run as single leaders or two at the top of the team and are able to implement the commands of the musher.
"Point Dogs" - dog couple behind the lead dogs
"Swing Dogs" - dog couple behind the Point Dogs
"Team Dogs" - dogs in the team
"Wheel Dogs" - Dogs running directly in front of the sled. These animals should be strong and have to keep the sled on the optimal driving line and tear in the corners.

Material:

For the dogs:


"Booties" - protective boots for the dog paws made of fiber fur or hard-wearing nylon to protect the paws against injuries in the case of harsh, ice or other aggressive snow conditions.
"Crockery" - Race construction of a chest harness, which is used to spread the traction force on the chest and shoulders of the dog. At these points the harness is padded with neoprene or another water-repellent material.
"Neckline" - A short connecting line to attach the dogs to the neckband to prevent them from walking in different directions.
"Tugline" -Line, which is attached to a loop on the harness of the dog, a carabiner and transmits its pulling force to the central lines.
"Zentraleine" - Central cable, on the left and right the dogs are tied to Neck- and Tugline.
"Pull line" - lines with which the sled dogs pull the sledge. One differentiates central line, neck line and Tugline.

Sled:


"Brush-Bow" - round arch at the front of the sled to protect the dogs from injuries if the sled is to drive the sled by driving errors on the team.
"Handle Bar" - Vertical bow to the runners, where the musher holds on during the ride
"Snow Anchors" - A metal claw that allows the musher to stop and stand even on the open track without the help of others. The anchor is designed so that it can dig deeper into the snow through the pull of the dogs.
"Transport bag" - Each sled has to be equipped with a sack in which an injured or exhausted dog can be safely transported to the destination. This bag must be well ventilated so as not to overheat the dog. In the long distance races (Iditarod, Yukon Quest), the sack is much larger and is used to accommodate the survival pack.

Pulka:


"Pulka" - A weight-weighted plastic tub, pulled by one or more sled dogs. The dogs run in a row, the musher follows on cross-country skis and is connected to the pulka by a rope.
