Multi-dog or single dog dog sled
The Esla sled is a Finnish kicksled designed as a traditional sled or pulka. It can be used with or without dogs – while it is fun without dogs, we of course are totally biased and think you’ll have a lot more fun with your team.
The traditional kicksled design has been modified to work well as a small team dog sled. Depending on the strength and size of your dogs we’d suggest it for teams of 1-3 dogs.
The smaller your dogs (or team) the more human power that will be needed to power the kicksled. Dogs over 35 lbs should be able to provide at least 50% of the power, especially if on hard packed snow.
Most of our customers are recreational mushers with non-traditional sledding breeds.
We are big believers that any dog can enjoy sledding with the proper training and equipment.
Be sure to check out our resources for advice on how to train and start your dog’s kicksledding career.
We guarantee once you give this sport a try – you’ll be hooked for life! You’ve never had this much fun.
