Iditarod Insider 2.0 offers a glimpse into the lives of Iditarod sled dogs and the people who engage with them every day of their lives.
They are lives full of energy, activity, and wellness. We visit with those that spend their summers on the glaciers, to others that spend their days near their wilds of Denali, and all stops in between. Insider 2.0 sets out to take you inside their lives, far from the trail and a look at a life of joy, camaraderie, and a level commitment that has few rivals.

He may live remotely but his dogs live a life of royalty. They have their own private lake and beach and yard you could play golf on. Whatta life for these guys near Eureka, Alaska. And he loves a Jeep but this one doesn’t come with tires and a collapsible roof.
Life has changed for many of us. But to a sleddog its life as usual and it’s up to the musher to keep their dogs inspired and feeling great. And oh yeah he’s got puppies too!
It’ll be her 3rd race and Ryne and her team is ready to go. We spent some time with her at her home outside of Fairbanks to see what he dogs do all summer!
