This Memorial Day, please pause to honor not only those men and women who have served, but also please remember the U.S. military dogs, who have been selflessly serving since World War II.

We were SO excited to have a chance to meet and mingle with the crews of Denali ATV and Denali Jeep Excursions last night! Thank you for hosting all of us and taking us out for a fun ride! :D

If you're heading to Denali this summer, we highly recommend booking a trip with one of these great companies - you're bound to have a great time and meet some wonderful people!!

PS - We took some three puppies from our "Leading Ladies of the Golden Age" litter with us, and they got cuddled and squished to their hearts content! :)

Alpine Creek Excursions (ACE)

Stephanie and team as they cross the finish line in Steph's FIRST race!!

What a fun weekend!  Husky Homestead had two teams in the Alpine Creek Excursions race this past Saturday, and they did pretty darn well!  Jeff ran a 12 dog team, and our handler Stephanie Otto (running her FIRST race) ran an eight dog team.  Stephanie departed the start just minutes before Jeff did, and after taking off full throttle Jeff shouted "don't forget the brake!"  haha!  Jeff ended the Read More →

Race Week in Bethel!

Greetings Race Fans! It's been a busy week:  final training run on the highway was on Sunday, Monday had us packing everything up and re-checking our gear, etc., Tuesday the team headed to Anchorage where everyone enjoyed a comfortable night at the Inlet Tower, then up and at 'em early on Wednesday to get the dogs over to Alaska Air Cargo before the truck and trailer were parked - then the Read More →

Off to the Knik!

the teams are set!

Husky Homestead is a blur of activity with the starting of the New Year! 1,500 training miles logged, and preliminary races lay behind and ahead. The first race of the season was the Alpine Creek Excursion – 62 miles right in our backyard and making use of the trails that Husky Homestead uses all winter long... the Denali Highway! Despite being distracted by helping to organize the race along Read More →

Gobble Gobble!

Greetings Husky Homestead Fans! It's been a busy fall so far!  The snow fell early this year - as in September early!  Much to the excitement (or perhaps disappointment..) of our last guests of the season we had several inches on the ground! Then of course Mother Nature decided to offer up a very mild October which allowed us to get many projects finished before winter came back to stay.  We Read More →

Kobuk 440 – Heading for Selawik!

While we run the dogs, play with puppies, eat dinner and get some sleep - Jeff and the Team continue to lead the Kobuk 440! When we left you last, the team was out of Ambler and heading for the turn-around point of Kobuk.  Jeff arrived into the Kobuk checkpoint in first position Friday evening at 7:19pm and stayed for 18 minutes.  While this short stop in the checkpoint does add to his Read More →

Kobuk – Heading for Shungnak & Kobuk

Jeff and the Team spent nearly 7 hours resting in Ambler during the heat of the day.  In Kotzebue the temperatures may not be too hot during the day - but all that sunshine is what gets you!  The dogs had a chance to get a nice rest at the checkpoint here before heading back out on the trail. Our previous guess on the dropped dog situation turned out to be incorrect.  According to the Official Read More →

Kobuk 440 – In to Ambler!

Jeff and the Team are into the Ambler checkpoint!  They were the first team in this morning at 9:08am, with the Katherine Keith arriving just three minutes later.  While Jeff took four hours rest back in Kiana, you can expect him to stay here for some more rest before heading up the trail to Kobuk. It seems that some of the girls on the Team are having some disagreements - particularly Skeeter Read More →

Race day in Kotzebue!

Hey race fans!  We're back on the trail today in Kotzebue! Jeff and the team departed Husky Homestead on Monday afternoon to make the trek to Anchorage where they caught their flights to Kotzebue in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.   After arriving in Kotz, Jeff delivered his drop bags to Ryan Air for distribution to the checkpoints, and helped his host family with a minor Read More →

We are racing!

Race fans... we have ourselves a race!!  Isn't this exciting?!?!? We just watched the latest Iditarod Insider video that shows Jeff camped about 8 miles out from Kaltag, headed for Elim.  He was sitting on his cooler and eating a nice hot breakfast burrito that he heated up in his cooker seat.  His strategy at this point is to "stay out of sight" of those following him, and be the first musher Read More →
