Joanna Oberg

Grand Marais, MN

I help my folks operate Agimac River Outfitters in northwestern Ontario in the summer and work in Grand Marais in the fall/winter so we are moving our dog yard between MN and Canada every six months… We keep a smaller kennel of around 20 dogs/puppies/retirees. I love the controlled chaos of running dogs!! And enjoying the beauty of winter gliding through the wilderness pulled by my amazing athletes:) Other then my dogs I enjoy time spent with family and friends, talking long walks with my German Irish Setter 🙂 reading, painting, and enjoying God’s beautiful creation year round:)

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

Friends introduced me to the sport and I was hooked from the get go:) I got my first purebred sled dog, a Samoyed, when I was 14, but didn’t have more then a 2 dog team until like 16-17?
