A little history on what the International Federation of Sleddog Sports (IFSS) is:

In 1992 the International Federation of Sleddog Sports was officially incorporated as a way to focus the efforts of many, national, local and international organizations on the goal of Olympic recognition and alignment of mushing with other mainstream sports through the General Association of International Sports Federations. IFSS is recognized by GAISF and in all counties as the world governing body of sled dog sports.


The IFSS is the only organization able to offer the structure for mushers to participate in a worldwide program within the Olympic circle.

The mission of the IFSS is to promote comprehensive development, expansion, and participation in sled dog sports in all their diverse aspects and to foster understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of the use of sled dogs. The IFSS continues to strive towards gaining Olympic recognition of sled dog sports.
In the 2009 IFSS race to be held in Daaquam, Quebec, more than 400 teams and 2500 dogs coming from 5 continents are expected during the 9 days of competitions. Official ceremonies will open and close the World Championships including official speeches, flag parade, national anthem, musical show and fireworks display (silent - for the dog’s sake).

In order to participate in the 2009 IFSS race a Team USA musher must either pre-qualify by winning specified World Cup races, which there are none here in Alaska OR be chose based on the previous two years racing record. Sundog Racing Kennel was chosen based on the last two years of racing performance.
