Abigail- Born Aug. 1, 2007
Abby is one of our leaders. She knows the commands well, but she can sometimes second guess herself. For the most part though, she’s a great leader. As one of our older femalws, she’s a calm presence in the dog yard (unless it’s dinner time). She’s a great listener and follows us around when we do chores or when it’s her turn to come inside.
Abby is the mom of the bike parts litter.
Pedal- Born Sept. 29, 2010
Pedal has really sweet energy, and she loves to play. When she’s running around, she’ll take off chasing her brother Derailer, or be chased by another dog. When it’s dinner time, she patiently watches you fill her bowl, then she scarfs it up. When it comes time to run, she gets so excited her entire body shakes and her teeth chatter. Even though she’s small, she takes her job seriously, both as a leader and as a team dog.

Link- Born Sept. 29, 2010
Link, fondly referred to as Slinky Linky, is one of our smallest girls, but that doesn’t stop her at all. She pulls like crazy all the time. She loves her job and she loves to make people happy. She likes to communicate with her ears, popping them up and down as she watches you. She’s happy and excited all day, every day. If she gets left behind on a run, she’ll howl and bark the whole time. She’s one of our leaders in training.

Tux- Born Sept. 29, 2010
Tux is a great leader for two reasons, the first is because he pulls like crazy and he knows the commands. Second, he likes to chew, so if there’s a dog in front of him, that dog will soon be running free because Tux will have chewed his tug line the second we turned our heads.
Tux is part of the bike parts litter (but when he was born, he looked like he was wearing a tux, so the name stuck with him).
Axle- Born Sept. 29, 2010
Axel is a sweet boy. He’s one of most agile boys. He avoids getting into trouble and gets along with everyone, dogs and people included. When he’s hooked up he’s a great (though not crazy) puller, and when he’s just hanging out he loves attention and giving hugs.
Axle is part of the bike parts litter.
Derailer- Born Sept. 29, 2010
Derailer is one of our all-stars. He’s crazy when it comes to pulling, and he’s sweet when it comes to meeting people. When we hook him up to go out for a run, he gets so excited and intense that he freaks out the dog next to him. He’s ready for anything anytime and stays ultra-focused on the trail. This earned him the honor of being the stud of the candy bar litter.

Twix- Born June 5, 2012
Twix is a big boy. He never gets tired and pulls like crazy, just like his dad. He’s got a mean bark, but it’s only because he either wants to run or play. He’s actually very friendly and loves to jump all over you. He’s still young but we think he’s going to be one of our all-stars.

Rolo- Born June 5, 2012
When Rolo was younger, he was quite a bit calmer than his brother and sister. But as he’s maturing, he’s becoming quite an impressive (and big) boy. He knows when it’s time to run and when it’s time to relax. He gives everything he’s got when we’re running, so much so we need to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t wear himself out. We’re excited about his potential!

Snickers- Born June 5, 2012
Don’t let the photo fool you, Snickers is one of our craziest and cutest girls. She still has a ton of puppy energy. She bounds around the kennel, hardly keeping her paws on the ground. The same is true when you hook her up to the team, she bounces along the trail, too excited at first to keep all four on the ground and really pull. She wants to go faster than all the other dogs with her sprinty build.
Snickers is in the candy bar litter.
Though a bit shy at first, he warms up quickly and loves a good cuddle. He started on a race team up in Alaska, and now he’s with us as the long miles were tough on his shoulders. He loves running tours and is always consistent in both his work and his attitude. He gets along along with everyone really well!
Ryobi- Born June 29, 2010
Ryobi is our girl who gets much attention. She loves people and people tend to love her. In lead, she does a fantastic job, she knows the commands and runs with her head down, very focused. As a team dog, however, she doesn’t work so hard, either because she’s bored or because she’s just not interested in being a team dog, she wants to lead.
Ryobi is part of the power tools litter.
Makita- Born June 29, 2010
Chiquita Makita is our mischievously sweet girl. She runs her heart out on the team and loves it. She gets along with everyone (people and dogs) and also loves her freedom. When given the chance, she’ll take off running free, leaving behind the kennel, the other dogs, and us. She’ll come back, of course, when she’s ready, but she definitely gives us a run for our money.
Makita is part of the power tools litter.
Bosch- Born June 29, 2010
Bosch is becoming more impressive as he matures. He’s a slow and steady kind of guy. He definitely pulls, and pulls hard, but he does it in such a way that would allow him to do it for the long haul. We want to get Bosch racing because he seems to have the craziness of a good racing dog, but also the ability to pace himself to last a while.
Bosch is part of the power tools litter.
Dewalt- Born June 29, 2010
Dewalt, like his brother, is strong and smart. At first, he’s not the all-star dog in the spotlight, but after watching him run for a bit, you realize he’s got a lot of potential. He’s powerful, he’s intelligent, and he’s confident, just a little bit quiet.
Dewalt is part of the power tools litter.
As one of the older dogs in the kennel, Bama still brings the craziness in his attitude and his appetite. He’s not the smoothest runner, but he’s incredibly strong and consistent. He has probably the best appetite in the kennel, often getting a good amount of his food eaten before it even hits the bowl.
Liza- Born June 20, 2005
Liza is Lydia’s sister. They are a lot alike in terms of personality and drive. She’s also one of our solid leaders, but when we stop she quickly gets herself tangled in the dogs behind her. When she is in lead though, she’s focused, driven, smart, and tireless. She’s one of our shyest dogs around people. She grew up in a racing kennel, so she’s more accustomed to that life than to the tour life. She’s also the mom of the M litter.
Monster is an even mix of his parents, big and strong like his dad and a little neurotic like his Mom (Liza). He’s a great puller, albeit a little bit insecure around other boys. He likes to have his belly rubbed from time to time.
Monster is part of the “M” litter.
Mini has a good amount of crazy in her. She has one of the smoothest gaits in the kennel and is always excited to pull. There’s never a dull moment with Mini. With her crazy amount of energy and drive, she’s one of the stars on the team.
Mini is part of the “M” litter.
Rhino is one of our smaller boys. He’s grown into being a sled dog. He and his sister Stroller were raised more like pets, being the first dogs of the kennel, but as time wears on he’s grown more consistent in his role as a sled dog. During free-run time, he likes to run around by himself, exploring his surroundings rather than chasing after other dogs.
Rhino is part of the Juneau Peaks litter.
There’s a lot to love about Stroller- her consistent drive to pull, her happy attitude, the way she talks to you when you’re near her but not yet paying attention to her, and her amazingly soft coat. Not only all of that, but she is also just really fun to hang out with, whether it’s around the house or taking her on a run, she makes a great companion.
Stroller is part of the Juneau Peaks litter.
Big, strong, crazy, and sweet. That’s Croc in a nutshell. He was neutered as a young dog because he couldn’t keep weight, and then he grew into himself and has become one of our biggest dogs. He’s smart, but often gets a little too excited to be able to think. He usually runs as a wheel dog.
Croc is part of the shoe litter.
Instilled with the same crazy energy as his brother, Keen could pull a sled with 500 pounds in it on his own. He’s super strong as long as he’s in wheel and undistracted. Every now and then he’ll bark at the team, turn on turbo, lean into his harness and pull like there’s no tomorrow. He’s as crazy about food as he is about pulling; he’ll eat the food in the air as it’s being dumped in his bowl.
Keen is part of the shoe litter.
Redoubt is a special girl. Having survived a near fatal infection when she was young, she’s not the strongest dog in the kennel, but what she lacks in strength she makes up for with heart. She loves being a sled dog and works just as hard as the other dogs on the team. She’s got a quirky personality, a sweetness mixed with a helping of crazy hyperness that doesn’t let her sit still.
Redoubt is part of the Alaskan volcanoes litter.
Smart, stubborn, and sweet- those are the three words I’d choose to describe Augustine. She’s an excellent leader, when she wants to be. She knows the commands and follows them. When it’s time to run, she’s focused and driven, and when it’s time to hang out, she loves to be the center of attention.
Augustine is part of the Alaskan volcanoes litter.
As one of the largest and strongest dogs in the kennel, H.D. wins the award for most consistent puller. He’s got a little bit of a timid personality around people, but when he’s hanging out around dogs he’s awesome. He kind of reminds me of an awkward but sweet teenage boy, chasing around girls trying to get their attention. He’s the dad of Ark, who was born summer of 2014.
H.D. is part of the technology litter, but he’s the only one of his litter that we have in our kennel.
Wind is one of our strongest boys and most solid workers. It’s clear he loves his job. After running the Iditarod in 2015, he retired from long distance running to run tours with us and will maybe do a few smaller races with our team.
We adopted Earth from a racing kennel in the summer of 2013. Although big and slow-footed, he’s got a sled dog’s heart. He loves his job. Though he’ll never make the race team, he’s perfect for tours because he loves to pull and he loves people. He’s loves to sit on top of his house and watch what’s going on in the kennel.
We adopted Fuji the summer of 2015 and he’s now reunited with his sister Redoubt and Augustine. He’s a great addition to our team as a strong puller and a quirky, awkward boy.
