Dog sleds were most widely used in the Klondike because of their reliability, and the dogs were able to travel quite fast, even while injured. A sixteen dog sled was able to pull up to 600 pounds, so just enough to have one man and all of the supplies on a trailing sled. In the areas like Alaska where there were few inhabitants, the people there used their dogs as a way to go from one place to another. The pooches could get through snow, ice, and sleet easily, making

Buck decided he would help other dogs fight against Spitz and would protect the dogs from their punishments that came from Spitz. Another thing, is he would not fight Spitz in plain sight because he didn’t want to get caught by their dog’s master. He also rebelled against Spitz by swaggering in front of him to get on Spitz’s nerves. Buck did everything he could to help the other dogs by leading them. This is how Buck was able to rebel against Spitz and didn’t get caught at the same

Then after Buck took a few beatings from the club he backed down to the man in the red sweater and retrusted humans with clubs. After the man in the red sweater taught Buck to back down to clubs he sold Buck to Perrault and Francois. Perrault and Francois taught Buck how to become a sled dog. While Buck was learning to be a sled dog, Spitz the leader of the sled team would attack Buck even when Buck was doing as told.
Buck’s great genes and extensive training have allowed him to become more agile than any foe he is pitted against. So when Jack London is talking about Buck fighting a pack of wolves he say “he was everywhere at once” meaning that buck is so quick to strike that there is nowhere that the wolves aren’t vulnerable. The inclusion of this hyperbole gives us a sense of how Buck has evolved from a simple house dog to a wild killer of great strength.
Evolving like Buck in Call of the Wild is difficult ,but worth the journey. Buck was sold and beaten all at once, which made him a very angry and a weakened dog.

More civilized dogs like Newfoundland’s and even huskies find primitive counterparts in the wolves whose howl at the end of the story was the very sound of the wild.

Buck survives to embrace life at the end of a book informed by death as the horrifying, rhythmic reflex of an entire order of things. Life in The Call of the Wild was a survival built on the death of other living creatures.
