Varg is tough on the outside and soft on the inside. These words describes Varg well, since he can seem a bit overwhelming due to his size and appearance. But if you know him, you will know that when he barks in your direction, he is doing it to catch your attention and to be petted – and not to scare you away. Varg is at the same time a fantastic lead dog. When the sled is not moving, he is always standing still, listening, looking at the musher, waiting for commands. Varg is a very skilled and dutiful character amongst the dogs. The name Varg means “wolf”.
