Joe Taylor

Hometown: Fairbanks, Alaska


I was born and raised in Fresno, California. We raised guide dogs for the blind when I was growing up, and I always knew I’d work with animals but never imagined it would be sled dogs until a summer job doing research at UAF took me to Fairbanks. I have a small kennel just west of Fairbanks in Ester. Our kennel name is Mushing Malarkery. Malarkey is the nickname of one of my leaders and reflects our fun and lighthearted approach to the sport.
