A recent ‘industry profile’ of dog-powered activities (Gabe, Colby, Cohen and Allen, 2005) examined the potential of mushing and other dog-powered activities as a part of a broader economic development strategy focused on recreational and nature based tourism. Gabe, et al focused on demographic and economic characteristics of geographical areas with high levels of dog-powered activities or ‘mushing clusters’. Characteristics of these ‘mushing clusters’ were compared to the United States as a whole as well as between Piscataquis County, Maine, the study site, and the northern portion of Maine.
