Sled dogs are useful for pulling sleds, but can also make good companions. A single sled dog can pull 360 pounds. Sled dogs must take a short rest after pulling a sled for 1 hour; otherwise, they gain one level of exhaustion.

Unofficial: While a sled dog can pull 360 lbs., the rules say nothing about the animal's carrying capacity. A wolf has a strength of 12, which means a carrying capacity of 180. Since a wolf is comparable in size and strength, we use the same carrying capacity.

A large, muscular horse that is primarily used as a mount for combat. The horse is trained to be less likely to flee from danger, and is able to trample smaller enemies. A large, well-trained warhorse is considered too valuable to be pastured or butchered.
