From one to three dogs are commonly used. The fact is that a skier is responsible for providing power with skis and poles, and the dog adds additional power by pulling it with his speed on snow.

The fact is that Skijoring is just similar to dog sledding, that is immensely famous in a lot of parts of this world.
 
There are no reins or other signaling devices to control the dog. And that is why it is a somewhat difficult sport as compared to the earlier one. So how will the dog move? The dog should get ample amount of motivation from the owner and should run by its own desire to run, and respond to the owner's voice for direction.
