Its what happens off air as well , these dogs are bread to work , they are often in harsher enviroments when at there own kennels. The conditions they train for 11 months before ....just be at this race is done not for tbere enjoyment.  Let me jot down some info from The sled dog action Coalition.

In almost all of the Iditarod races, at least one dog death has occurred. The first race is reported to have resulted in the deaths of 15 to 19 dogs. In 1997, the Anchorage Daily News reported that "at least 107 (dogs) have died." In the years since that report, 35 more dogs have died in the Iditarod, bringing the grand total of dogs who have died in the Iditarod to at least 142. There is no official count of dog deaths available for the race's early years and this count relies only on a reported number of deaths.

The Iditarod Trail Committee does not release information about dogs who die after the race.

we simply do not know how many dogs die or are injured during their intensive and grueling training for the race.

Most mushers train their dogSome injuries and disorders that occur during the race include spinal injuries, bone fractures, sore and cut paws, ruptured tendon sheaths, torn muscles, sore joints, dehydration, stress and diarrhea. Intestinal infections occur when mushers feed their dogs food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. When temperatures rise, dog food dropped off and left outside during the race often spoils. On average, 50% of the dogs who start the race cannot make it across the finish line.s in the remote areas of rural Alaska; consequently, their activities cannot be monitored.

As part of their training, many mushers force their dogs to pull very heavy loads, which can cause hip and spine injuries.

On average, 50% of the dogs who start the race cannot make it across the finish line.

The dog deaths and injuries in the Iditarod show that these dogs are "overworked" and "overdriven." If the Iditarod occurred in most of the other states or the District of Columbia, it would be illegal under the animal cruelty laws. Unfortunately, the State of Alaska's animal anti-cruelty law does not say that "overdriving" and "overworking" an animal is animal cruelty.

"597. Cruelty to animals. (B) Every person who overdrives, overloads, drives when overloaded, overworks... any animal... is, for every such offense, guilty of a crime punishable as a misdemeanor or as a felony or alternatively punishable as a misdemeanor or a felony and by a fine of not more than twenty thousand dollars ($20,000)."
