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
The A-boys are following in their mother's footsteps. Almost always at the front of the team, eager to pass others, always ready for a hug, Anvil embodies these traits well.
Fetch has been tearing down the trail since he was harness broken. With the maturity of an older dog, he has kept pace with the big boys and always wants a butt scratch.
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.
If there was a teacher's pet in the kennel, it is Scrimshaw. He is lovable, always on task, does his work, and makes life easy for the musher. A big, strong, and hardworking dog.
Snowhook is a strong leader. She follows direction, keeps her mind on the trail, and is ready to go again and again.
Snowhook is sponsored by Jessica and Joel Booker
