Position – Leader

Breed: Alaskan Husky
Born:  2005 – Togo, Minnesota

Ramp is one of our originals.  He was dropped from Jamie Nelson’s race team due to breaking his toe.  It was questionable if Ramp would ever make the race team let alone become a distance dog.  After a year of rehab and a slow transition to the main team he became an integral part,  having finished numerous races including Iditarod.  A large strong boy with the most affectionate attitude.  This boy can do no wrong.  Ramp is father to four of our other dogs, three who currently are still in Alaska as part of our race team.

Race History:  White Oak Classic 2010, Beargrease Marathon 2010/2011, Red River 2010, Race to the Sky 2011, Copper Basin 300 2012/2013, Tustemina 200 2013, Iditarod 2012/2013/2014/2015, Yukon Quest 2014

Retired: Ramp now lives in the house and spends his days roaming the property.



Position:  Leader

Breed:  Alaskan Husky
Born: 2005 – Big Lake, Alaska

This girl is very different from our other Alaskans.  From the kennel of 4 times Iditarod champion Martin Buser, Pandora joined our race team in 2010 and ran numerous distances races.  She has also completed Iditarod once for Martin Buser.  She’s not what most would expect of a sled dog.  Small, often a little chubby, floppy eared and doesn’t look much like a husky…but don’t be fooled, this is the real deal and when in harness she gets the job done.  She is also a very capable leader.  Pandora is a very affectionate dog and likes nothing more then rolling over at your feet waiting for belly rubs.  Two of Pandora’s pups are now in our race team in Alaska.

Race History:  White Oak Classic 2010/2011, Beargrease Marathon 2010, Red River 2010,  Iditarod 2006 and numerous other Alaskan races.

Retired:  This sweet girl hung up her harness at the end of the 2015 season and now has a great pet home in Cromwell.
