Justin Robinson, Cavalier ND. Janna (wife) and I wanted to have quality time as a family. My job was very hectic in the spring, summer and early fall. I managed Icelandic State Park with ND Parks & Recreation. Janna always wanted an artic dog . So we brought two Alaskan Malamute puppies home to see if they would pull a sled for our little girls. It was a vortex after this as my daughter dreams of running the Jr. Iditarod. We have since moved and expanded the kennel to add more and more dogs. I am running the rest of her kennel while she runs the 120 mile Beargrease this year. Its more of a biography for the whole family as the whole family are Eva’s handlers. We have been mushing for 10 years. Four years ago we started in recreational shorter races and have worked up to mid distance.

Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race and Mid Minnesota 150
