Fountain, MN

While dogs have always been part of my life, interest in dog powered sports started in skijoring with rescue and hunting dogs in 2007. When my small motley crew no longer seemed like enough power, I went searching for more. In 2015 I made the transition from a romantic observer of the sled dog racing scene to a full blown addict. I live with my wife and 3 children in a yurt we built in 2016 near Wykoff. My full time occupation is as an ER nurse at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. When not running dogs or working I enjoy just being a dad and husband. Other interests include camping, fishing, hunting, and canoeing

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

I love watching dogs do what they love to do. If you count harnessing the family dog to a big wheel, 10 years old. If we’re talking actual sled dogs, 35 years old.

Need your help

What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the final hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.

These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you find it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
