ISDVMA’s mission and philosophy

The ISDVMA would like to reiterate our mission and philosophy with sled dogs:

  • ISDVMA's mission is to enhance the well-being, welfare and safety of sled dogs
  • ISDVMA fully supports anti-doping regulations and testing to ensure the safety of sled dogs
  • ISDVMA believes that sled dog race organizations are responsible for the enforcement and regulations for their events
  • ISDVMA believes that the use of a controlled substance outside of the doctor-client patient relationship is unethical and illegal. Likewise, ISDVMA is firmly against the use of any performance-enhancing drug that can mask symptoms of illness or injury of our canine athletes.
