MEET THE DOGS

THE HEART OF THE OPERATION

Lisbet & Nils operate the Fairbanks branch of the oldest Siberian Husky kennel in the world - Alaskan Kennels.

 

The dogs are the heart of our operation and we are committed to our dogs for the entirety of their lives.

 

We enjoy sharing our lifestyle with guests and are happy to address any questions or concerns you may have about sled dogs.

 

We have 45 sled dogs ranging in age from 4 to 12. Each dog has its own unique and individual personality.

ANADYR SIBERIANS

The line of dogs produced by Alaskan Kennels is known as Anadyr Siberians (Anadyr is pronounced “Anna-deer”). 

For over seventy years, the primary focus of the kennel has been to preserve and promote the original function and appearance of the Siberian Husky as a sled dog. Alaskan Kennels produces dogs that compete successfully in both sprint and distance races, an accomplishment few kennels can claim. 


Alaskan Kennels is committed to maintaining the workability of the Siberian Husky. We believe that participating in sled dog races, both sprint and distance, is is the best way to benchmark the breed. Racing is only possible with the support of sponsors & fans.

We believe the best way to benchmark the breed is to participate in sled dog races. It costs an average of $20,000 to run Iditarod. Smaller races, such as the Copper Basin 300, run upwards of $5000. To offset race fees, we run an annual "dog sponsorship" fundraiser. Pick one (or more) of the Arctic Dog Co. dogs as your "own” for the season.  

What does your money go towards?

Dog sponsorships go towards race-specific costs such as: entry fees, regular chiropractic vet visits, additional meat and kibble, fuel for training runs and travel to/from races.

What will you receive?

A beautiful picture of your sled dog, a handwritten thank you note, quarterly updates on your dog and the team's training progress, PLUS a special end of season thank you gift.
