Group Main Team: 2016/2017

The majority of these dogs have been the backbone of our team since 2014 and our first year back into racing. It takes longer to breed and raise your own championship team but the quality is exceptional if you're lucky enough to mix the right genetics.

Flash has been amazing dog for us, but really came into his own as a 4 yr old and this year even better yet at 5. He was a little slow to mature, but never misses a beat and is very dependable. He is a beautiful mover, tireless, and tough.

Salt is a very loyal and intelligent leader on our team, the type you can trust completely when the going gets tough. Salt has the best natural endurance of any dog in the kennel. She is a natural born leader, from our main leader bloodline, who learned commands quickly as a yearling as did her siblings Orca and Patch. The majority of Salt's pups have all led as yearlings as well and are leaders in kennels across AK, Europe, and the US. Salt is an excellent mother dog and enjoys spending time with pups from the mother dogs, too.

Torch is a very dependable young dog in our team. All of our 3 year olds have finished every race they've been in and his first in Bethel as a leased dog was no cake walk. Insane eater, super hard worker, very high attitude.

Race Record : 4th Bogus Creek 150 2016, leased to Herman Philip. This was Torch's first race and running with a musher unknown to him he had a super performance. The Bogus 150 is an extremely challenging race. In 2016 it was 150 miles of glare ice on the Kuskokwim River in which Herman was 1st and 2nd most of the way until his main leader got hurt. Then he put Torch in lead to help get him down the trail. We passed on a very generous offer for Torch. 1st Two Rivers 200 2016 2nd Knik 200 2017 10th & Rookie of the Year Award Copper Basin 300 2017 3rd Willow 300 2017 1st Nenana Ice Classic Tripod 42/42 2017
