Is there any explanation why there is a Anubis head part of the sled in this hieroglyph:

It's not Anubis, it is a canide (jackal / wolf) wnS (Faulkner p. 63)
wnS is also the word for a kind of sledge, the wnS-sledge, a jackal-headed sledge (Wb 1, 325.2)
Gardiner U16
Phon: biA
Det: wnS-sledge
Phono-Det: biA
(Hannig, p. 1086)

That jackal-headed sled hieroglyph reminds me a lot of Wepwawet, the Opener of Path.
