Our Kennel

Our dogs are Alaskan huskies, hardy and friendly. They come from the Alaskan Native village dogs mixed with the dogs that arrived in Alaska during the gold rush. They come from long distance kennels (Iditarod or Yukon Quest kennels).

Our dogs are our best friends. They will spend all their life with us.

With our team, we finished the Yukon Quest 1000 in 2012 and the Iditarod in 2014 and 2015, 1250 km in the 2018 Iditarod race.  In 2019, I scratched in Iditarod after 690 km.
