Biography

Robert Nelson, 43, was born and raised in Kotzebue. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1995 with a B.S. degree in Economics and Political Science. “My kennel is located some 20 miles outside of Kotzebue, a place called Fish Creek. I train with my dad, Louie, as well as with Ed Iten and John Baker, who also have their cabins nearby. I think the area in which we train is heaven on earth, plus I get to spend a lot of time with Louie. He’s an incredible person. He’s the reason I got involved with running dogs. If you’re ever in the area, stop by. There’s no shortage of coffee and conversation at our camp.” For the last four years, Robert has worked in construction. He says that his hobbies are music, reading and biking.
