Wild Root Kennel


Welcome to Wild Root Kennel

Wild Root is dedicated to raising, training and caring for a small pack of happy Alaskan huskies who love nothing more than to travel the trails together through the winter wilds of Alaska.

 We strive to engage and enjoy the wilderness in our backyard by traveling and camping, building backcountry competence, and challenging ourselves as we grow stronger. We look forward to testing ourselves in mid-distance races in order to see new trail, learn new skills, and engage with the larger mushing community of the interior.

By sharing our adventures, we hope others will be inspired to get outside and follow their dreams.

Once infected

with the mushing virus,

there is no cure.

There is only trail.
