The history of dogs in the North includes a variety of inter-species relationships and various working roles. This chapter seeks to shed light on the relationships and roles dogs had in the “opening” of the Canadian North-West during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by examining the use of dogs by the North West Mounted Police (NWMP), Royal North West Mounted Police (RNWMP), and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
