How much pull force does a German shepherd?
A fully grown and healthy german shepherd can usually pull 2-3 times of their body weight (max is 3). The usual weight of a healthy male german shepherd when fully grown is 30-40kg, and the female german shepherd is 22-32kg.
What is a reasonable weight to dog ratio for sled dogs?
Dogs that weigh around 40 to 45 pounds (18 to 20 kg) are the ideal size to pull sleds, but some may weigh as much as 85 pounds (38.5 kg). Young dogs that are enthusiastic runners, easygoing and mentally tough are good choices for sled dogs.
