correct me if i'm wrong but don't true sled dogs like alaskan huskies, CEDs, greenland dogs etc have some of their vertebrae fused for a stiffer better pulling back? if so, wouldn't that affect agility in sports.

I'm not sure but Eskies were never sled dogs, they were created to be companion dogs. They make great little circus like training companions ime.

Ahhh yeah, that makes sense. I know I'd never pick a sled dog for agility. lol

Hmm most of the not so well bred Eskies (american) I've met are aggressive or extremely fearful of strangers. Screaming, lunging, barking, growling. From what I've heard from these people, it seems pretty common in the breed.

I'm not sure about Canadian Eskies but shyness is a pretty big problem imo in American Eskies.

The Canadian Eskimo dog, or Qimmiq, is completely different from the American Eskimo dog.
