Having the opportunity to work as dog handler in remote Alaska just north of Denali National Park the Alaskan sled dog is a true classification of a working breed. Polar is the dogs name. He is a yearling I have the pleasure of training for future races as the kennel owner is a veteran sled racer for Yukon Quest, a 1000 mile sled dog race. The Alaskan sled dog is considered a mutt breed to help with endurance, speed, and strength. It is amazing to see the Alaskan husky in action as temperatures hover around 0 degrees. The colder it is the better they run.

Location: Healy, Alaska
