¿"Jalar" es mexicano? Para mí jalar es comer

Me gusta deslizarme sobre mi trineo cuando la nieve es blanda.

I would say: Los perros tiraban de su trineo...
Two more words for trineo in English: sleigh and sledge.

I am aware that sledge means sled but I have never heard anyone say it.
A sledge hammer is powerful heavy hammer used for knocking things down.

Mexico no es el único pais que usa la palabra jalar en lugar de tirar. Se usa
dondequiera en latino-america. Aquí tirar significa echar(el beisbolista tira
la pelota), y me parece que tirar es más común que echar.

So how would one say "dog sledding" in Spanish? As in "dog sled races" like the Iditarod? (Don't want to start a political debate here........)

I use it in preference to sled.

Sledge is also a verb, meaning "to verbally abuse a sporting opponent", particularly in cricket. I hadn't heard it used with this meaning until fairly recently, but it's well established now in British and Australian English.

Carreras de trineo con perros. (the most common I think)
Carreras de perros con trineo.

Hmm, I can't come with another way of saying it..

'Jalar' for me is common as synonym of 'Tirar' but it is almost never use in Argentina. We just use tirar.
