A lot of dog breeds have been used for pulling sleds. The Iditarod was run with poodles but they have banned all dogs not suitable for the climate. Still other dogs can do the job in most areas that don't need to be as solid in the breed. I would stick personally with the breed developed for sledding. The dogs are bred for the job and the harsh food they need to eat when there is no regular food.

People often underrate poodles having only seen the miniatures & the spoilt ones........... Undecided

Poodles were originally hunting dogs.  I believe they were actually used for wolves.

Look what happened to them when they became popular.

We actually need George to chime in on this one, he raises sled dogs and uses them on his trap lines.

Poodles were water retrievers.

"Poodles have been used as working dogs in the military since at least the 17th century. During WWII, ............. Dogs for Defense, Inc. was initiated and became the official procurement agency for all war dogs used in the Army, Navy and Coast Guard."  Dogs for Defense procured the dogs who were then trained by the Army. In 1942, the Poodle was one of 32 breeds officially classified as war dogs by the Army."
