The Dogs

Alaskan Huskies are a “hybrid racing mutt.” They got their start in Alaska in the early 1900s during the Alaskan Gold Rush. Prospectors and pioneers brought pet dog to Alaska to serve as sled dogs. Once here, they bred these pet dogs with huskies from Siberia, as well as with the native sled dogs already in Alaska. Since Alaskan Huskies have never been bred for appearances, they come in a variety of colors, and have a multitude of markings, ear shapes and eye colors. They have only been bred for performance — making them the very best racing sled dog in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to running tours, the dogs of Black Spruce Dog Sledding compete in 200 – 400 mile races, as well as the annual 1,000 mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race! Unlike other pro sports, there is very little money in dog sled racing. We do it just for fun and adventure! Join us by sponsoring one of our canine athletes…
