I have been fortunate to race Peter McClelland’s young dogs for the past dozen years or so, my wife and I started our own kennel (Hauling Dogs Kennel) a couple years ago mainly with dogs from him and Jamie Nelson. We now have 23 dogs and operate a freighting business out of Ely hauling people and gear into the BWCA for winter camping and ice fishing trips. I’m excited to be back on the Beargrease trail after a few years away, and running our own dogs.

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

I don’t remember what inspired me, but I started running dogs when I was 23.

The “goodest” dogs
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!
