Dallas Seavey is making his way back to the race. He takes a little time out to talk to us about his kennel and how he keeps his dogs fit and happy during the off-season.
Jeff Deeter and his wife KattiJo have quite an operation outside of Fairbanks. They are part of a new breed of musher and they have learned to keep their dogs happy and healthy and have found personal balance as well. Here is a day in the life of the Deeters.
Jeff King is much more than just a 4-time Iditarod Champion. Over these decades he’s become one of the great ambassadors of the race and the sport of mushing. We caught up to this busy musher at his kennel and tour business near Denali Park, Alaska.
She grew up in the mushing hot bed of Bethel, Alaska. Her love of the sleddog led her into mushing and it also led her into her career. She’s a real expert in the health and well being of these dogs.
You might think that Iditarod Dogs are always outside after all they are genetically equipped for that. Well hold your horses! That just isn’t the case at the Zirkles! 🙂 Sorry, Allen.
Linwood Fiedler has become a fixture on the Iditarod Trail. He believes in happy healthy sleddogs and goes to any lengths to ensure that. We caught up to LInwood at his kennel in Willow, Alaska.
He’s a 4-time champion for a reason. Martin Buser knows how important happiness is in a successful life. He lives that philosophy in his own life and it’s his goal to keep his dogs happy as well. In fact it sounds like it’s his purpose.
Matt Failor is a rising star in the Iditarod. We caught up to him after his race in 2019 to find out how he and his dogs stay busy and fit in the off-season.
Meredith is not new to the Iditarod. We spent some time with her at her Kennel in WIllow. And what a great looking team she has.
Mille is no stranger to sled dogs. She has spent years of her life on the runners as part of expeditions all over the globe. But she brings her skills to the Iditarod for the first time in her career.
