On the "Ice" Festive episode there was a discussion about Huskies. The picture on screen in the back ground however showed a team of Alaskan Malamutes - not Huskies.

The two breeds are distinctly different - Siberian and Alaskan Huskies are far slimmer and built for speed, whereas Alaskan Malamutes have a much more robust frame and are built for strength.

It's an easy mistake to make - many people can't tell the difference but there is a difference and this should be addressed at some point on a future show (perhaps when sled dogs are mentioned again).

Oh... and I have a rescued Malamute at home and it took me a number of years to be able to tell the difference. Once you see the difference it is clearly apparent.
