The 2018 Main Race Team


The Ice Queen. Puma started her SJK days in wheel position. After a few failed lead dog attempts, we noticed a trend… she was an exceptional leader in less than ideal trail conditions! Throughout the years she finally got the hang of “normal” trails and is a confident leader in any situation. Got wind, ice, trail blown over? Puma’s your girl. Single lead into Nome twice, led 3 teams across the ice in Iditarod 2014. A definite SJK superstar.

Puma is proudly sponsored by Brit Rasmussen from Leadville, Colorado! Thank you!



A small leading lady with a “large and in charge” personality! Mask is without a doubt the alpha dog in the kennel, quickly correcting anyone who challenges her position. Don’t let her tough image fool you, she’s one of the kennels biggest attention-getters and loves her pets. Her physical and mental attitude make her a one of a kind lead dog.

Mask is proudly sponsored by Paula English (in memory of Ted English) and Madison Mahoney!


Sailor is a dog of all trades. She is the most “built” of our spotted girls and the only one you’ll ever see in wheel position. Sailor is an easy dog to spot in the team with her short bobbed tail, and her one floppy-one straight ear. She’s a hard working dog on the trail and loves a good butt rub after a job well done!

Interested in sponsoring Sailor for the entire 2017 race season? Sailors race season sponsorship is $500.


The “one eyed wheel dog”.

Reebook is the main man, stud of the kennel, powerhouse of the team. His athletic build, never ending determination and big heart make him a kennel favorite! You will most likely see him in the wheel position. Reebok is a dog that will put it all on the line and give it till the end.

Reebok is proudly sponsored by Gary & Kari DeBruin from Menasha, Wisconsin! Thank you!


At 4 yrs old, 2 Iditarod finishes in lead and called “dangerous” by Wade under the burled arch in Nome, Jett is the total package. A young shining leader who is never afraid of the challenge. This dog always shows up and you’ll always get her A game. A true team captain!

Jett is proudly sponsored by Hailey Griffin from Ontario, Canada for a 2nd year! Thank you! 


 Darby has no off switch! She loves to jump, bark, and get everyone excited for the run ahead. She is working hard and having a blast training for the main team while preparing for Iditarod.

Darby is proudly sponsored by Blynne Froke from Los Molinos, California! Thank you!


Unbreakable focus, confident single leader. Ozzy is simply…the man!

A growing beauty! Shea has really stepped up her game in the last year. A solid Iditarod finish as a 2 year old, growing confidence in lead, and the most beautiful build. Shea is a complete package!

Rock has made his statement. Rock may be young, but he’s determined to learn from the best, to be the best! Attitude like his momma Pop, work ethic like his father Reebok. A champion combination.

Cookie! Crazy in her own way. Cookie is a dog who solely focuses on her job. Unlike most of the other dogs, Cookie doesn’t like special attention! Let her do her job and she will do it right every time. 3x Iditarod Finisher!

Sweet Chyna, growing up to look much like her grandma Puma. Chyna needed a little bit of encouragement her first few times in harness, but she caught on like a natural right away. She finished a strong 2018 Iditarod with Andrew Nolan!
