The amount of energy it takes to run the Iditarod pales in comparison to the work that goes into caring for our dogs. Mushing combines caring for animals with Olympic level training. Our dogs are much more than superior working animals. They are friends, comrades, co-workers, and family. We strive to give them the best in housing, nutrition, training, and health care.
Our dog sponsorship program offers you the opportunity to bond with one of these amazing animals and help them reach their Iditarod dreams. By joining our team, you will receive our dog sponsorship package, which includes a personalized photo of your dog. In addition, if your dog runs in the Iditarod, we will send you his or her Iditarod dog tag. You are also welcome to visit and spend some time with your dog.
Sponsors who find themselves at the Iditarod Start in Anchorage can visit with their dog for personal pep talks or congratulatory hugs!

2017 Racing Candidates
Gibson is a muscle machine. He drives all the time, is demanding of attention, and loves to eat. He has been impressing Mike with his performance since his first Iditarod in 2012.
Goblin has really been shining on the team this year. Solid, driven, and lovable he stands out not only because of his black spots, but also because of his promise.
Gremlin is a big mouth, big dog with speed. Known for his deep voice and tall stature he has shown talent and grace in harness since he was a yearling.
Gunnel is the most impatient dog in the kennel when it comes to feeding time. He finished the Iditarod as a yearling. He has the coat, metabolism, and drive we hope for. And he loves a butt scratch.
Named for the hurricane, Igor is tough and fast. He runs tirelessly and eats up everything in sight.
Often seen carrying his dish around the kennel, Jigsaw is one of the most talented gee haw leaders we have worked with. He is also really good at hugs.
Jigsaw is sponsored by Grandma Dorothy
As a yearling, Lancelot kept up with the race team with ease. Now that he is three, he definitely thinks that he is one of the cool kids. He had his first taste of the Iditarod last year and is eager for more.
Ruger was our handler's favorite dog when he was a puppy. He has grown into his reputation. He runs in lead and loves to go, go, go.
Riot is one of the most athletic dogs in the kennel. She is tall and fast. She is often in lead.
Uluru is tall and graceful. She is very driven in harness and has stood out in the team since she was harness broken. Her talents surpass her age.
This is the one. She has is all. Speed, speed, and more speed. Drive, drive, and more drive. Everything you would look for in the cutest sweetheart you could imagine.
Wingman has been showing up the race team since he was a yearling. A young leader with appetite, drive, and personality. Love this dog.
Woodshed reminds me of the greats. Athletically he is got it going on. Attitude, confidence, and talent.
