cropped-Just-Red-Dog-Dark.png We are a small, distance-racing sled dog kennel in Willow, Alaska. At RDR, the focus is on our tight knit group of Alaskan Huskies. We keep the kennel small in order to give each dog the time and investment that will allow them to excel. RDR has participated in the most competitive distance sled dog races in the world, the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, as well as mid distance races such as the Kobuk 440, the Kuskokwim 300, the Copper Basin 300, and more. Training begins in September or October, using a 4-wheeler and training shorter miles. By December, we work our way up to 100 mile runs. We like to have our athletes in top shape by early January, ready for for the racing season for the next three months. From there, we hit the trail racing mid-distance as preparation for the 1000-mile races. Our main focus is Iditarod.
