I am looking for a breed that I can do dryland mushing with, but it needs to get along with cats. Any ideas?

Any typically northern "mushing" breed is going to have a high prey drive, but plenty also get along with cats. I would select a breeder that has cats in their home so the puppies are used to cats before they ever come to you, and I would also be asking lots of questions about the puppy's ancestors and if they ever had problems with cats.

Another option would be finding an adult in a shelter or a breeder rehome that is proven good around cats.
