It is maddening that the greatest danger to the Canadian Inuit Dog is the interbreeding with other invasive breeds from the South. This problem was easily and perfectly solved on Greenland where they've fully banned all foreign dog types. It is puzzling why the Government of Nunavut would not do the same?
To connect with their traditions, Inuit of eastern Nunavut challenge each other each spring in the marathon Nunavut Quest dog sledding race. For six days, the Piksuk Media crew travel with the 17 teams and their 118 helpers along the spectacular east coast of Baffin Island, braving blizzards, high winds and cracking sea ice as the changing climate puts everyone on edge.
