THK is an an elite team of canine athletes and two mushers. Together, we travel Alaska’s vast wilderness, race the 1,000 mile Iditarod, and introduce Alaskan visitors to our amazing lifestyle. We are passionate about what we do and have had our hard work rewarded through improved race records, awards for “best dog care,” and great reviews about our tours from our many visitors.
The Iditarod Sled Dog Race
We are a professional racing kennel that focuses on the Iditarod, a 1,000 mile-long dog sled race. A dog sled team in the Iditarod is comprised of 14 dogs and one musher. Travis has competed in the Iditarod 9 times, with his top finish being 5th place. Sarah has competed in 2 Iditarods, with her best finish being 34th. Although we did not enter a team in the 2023 Iditarod due to some big life changes, we look forward to training and racing a team for the 2024 Iditarod.
Learn About Dog Sledding
Our passion is teaching people about dog sledding, the Iditarod, and our kennel — that’s why we run tours. We know that not all those interested in the sport can make their way to us so learn about mushing by following our blog!
Our dogs are the heart and soul of what we do. We pride ourselves on having fun, friendly, and highly energetic dogs. Whether it’s our leading lady Queen and her partner Ohmer or our big wheel dogs Tug and Barge, these guys make everyday fun. Our dog care has been publicly recognized as the best in the sport by the Tustumena 200, the Copper Basin 300, and the Knik 200 races multiple times.
In 2021, Travis received the sportsmanship award from the Willow 300. In 2022 we received another best dog care award from the Knik 200 and were also honored with the sportsmanship award by the Iditarod. In 2023, Travis was awarded the sportsmanship award by the Willow 300. We value quality dog care and helping others above any race placement. Although we did not participate in the 2023 Iditarod, we are looking forward to racing the Iditarod in 2024.
