There’s something about winter every year, even in Florida, that makes me want to watch dog sledding movies. Especially movies with Huskies.
There’s just something majestic about the Husky breed and their interaction with humans. It can be such a beautiful bond.
With that said I’ve watched a ton of dog movies, probably several hundred. So, I’ve started this list to include some of the best movies that feature Huskies.
Check ’em out!

A few thoughts about the list above….
We love movies, but we’re dog experts, not movie experts. With that said, our rankings are a reflection of ratings on Amazon and IMDB.
My personal favorite movies on the list are:
- Iron Will. Everything about this movie is good. And the ending is absolutely beautiful.
- Stone Fox. Shocked how low this is on the list. It’s only available via VHS, and while the lead dog is not a Husky (the rest of the race team is), this movie is incredible. Especially the ending.
- Eight Below. I have a special place in my heart for Paul Walker movies.
I thought hard about including White Fang, since the movies utilize Huskies for many of the scenes, but since the movie is technically about a wolf I left it off the list.
We’ve covered movies, but what about television?
We’ve put together a quick list of some of the best television shows, most of which are single episodes, that feature huskies.
- Dogs with Jobs (Season 2, Episode 13)
- Comeback Kids: Animal Edition (Season 1, Episode 2)
- Dogs 101 (Season 2, Episode 9)
- Lucky Dog (Season 4, Episode 21)
- Too Cute! (Season 5, Episode 9)
Are there any more Husky dog movies to look forward to?
The end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 are looking like the perfect storm of Husky dog movies.
- The Great Alaskan Race (coming to DVD late January 2020)
- Togo (available on Disney +)
- Another Call of the Wild remake with Harrison Ford (coming to the theaters soon!)
