4 to 6 Dogs


“Dogs were a vital part of life for many Arctic and Subarctic peoples...[they] were valuable members of many Inuit villages. A family usually owned 4 to 6 dogs but sometimes had as many as 10. A person with 10 dogs was considered quite wealthy, as it was hard to keep that many dogs well fed.” -World Book
