Our mid-distance/distance kennel is based out of Two Rivers, Alaska. Our bloodlines are diverse and from some of the oldest, most winning, stock, in the world of sled dogs. I've always had an interest in breeding dogs and training pups. I bred my first litter at the age of 13, Nestle x Zeek, which produced one of the first yearling leaders I trained, Paycheck. It's important to me to breed the best possible sled dogs we can. My grandpa, Dick Mackey, began breeding sled dogs in the 1960's. He went on to win the Iditarod as did my dad, Rick, and my uncle Lance. My goal is to be the next Mackey to win the Iditarod.
I ran my first dog at the age of three and was raised in a home that focused on winning major races in AK. I grew up competing in junior and mid-distacnes races. At the age of 19 I finished the 1000 mile Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race as one of the youngest competitors to do so. After spending a few years doing other things my husband and I are building our racing kennel. We believe that training a sled dog begins at birth. The pups we raise are given hands on attention and are well socialized. They enjoy daily walks/free runs, early harness breaking, and are given excellent health care as well as very diverse nutrition to promote aggressive appetites.
