Our dogs

Our dogs are Alaskan huskies, hardy and friendly. They come from the Alaskan Native village dogs mixed with the dogs that arrived in Alaska during the gold rush.

Now, our dogs come from long distance kennels. (Iditarod or Yukon Quest kennels).

With our team, we finished the Yukon Quest 1000 in 2012 and the Iditarod in 2014 and 2015.

We also have our retired dogs.

THE RETIRED

KIM AND KODIAK, born in 2002, my jovial friends. Frederic who guided for us, owned the parents. Cocotte, a tireless trotter, always smiling and Irkut, Cayenne’s son. Kodiak took part in the 2005 Yukon Quest. Kim was my companion during all my summer hikes. During the 2012-2013 winter season, they still ran with the puppies.

THE OTHER SLED DOGS

Mr. X is my best leader. He was born in 2007 in my kennel. I call him “my christmas gift” because an unforeseen breeding was done on December 24th! Viking is the father, Debee, a dog that my friend Paul Boudreau gave me, is the mother.

Mr. X is the best dog in my kennel, the best leader. He lead my team during the training and the 2012 Yukon Quest, where I realised that he is an exceptional dog.

About his name : In Quebec, each litter was given a name beginning with a different letter. First litter, it was  “A”, last litter was “X”. As this pup was alone, without brother or sister, I named him Mr. X.

He finished the Yukon Quest 1000 in 2012, the Iditarod in 2014 and in 2015. He was in front from start to finish, in all 3 races.
