About the Dogs / The Athletes

Alaskan Huskies are friendly and energetic. Bred for speed, strength, and endurance, they are some of the world's most talented athletes. Properly conditioned and with state-of-the-art nutrition, these dogs can run over 150 miles a day across some of the most unforgiving frozen terrain on earth. Sled dogs thrive in the cold of winter and every day brings a unique scenario of snow or clear skies with conditions changing within minutes.
