“These dogs are more than athletes, they’re superheroes” Petter Karlsson
Every dog in our kennel is special and unique. Whether they are a veteran racer who now licks our puppies into shape, a sprightly yearling with hopes of racing in 2020 or a current lean, mean, race winning machine, every single one of them contributes something special to our journey to the Iditarod.
Now we are giving you the opportunity to be part of your favourite dog’s journey. Your donation will go directly to the Iditarod fund which will be used to transport, feed and care for our dogs during the Iditarod.
When you sponsor one of our canine athletes you will receive a big THANK YOU here on the website as well as on Facebook and Instagram. We’ll send you a Christmas and end-of-season update of your dog with exclusive pictures to the email of your choice, and best of all, your dog will receive an extra special full body massage to say thanks for all their hard work! We’ll make sure you get some photos of your dog enjoying their massage.
Sponsorship is 20 euros a year and we accept payment through paypal only.
“As a child, I started to devote a lot of my time to dogs, to understand their behaviour and to learn from them. Soon they became the passion of my life. Later they made it possible for me to become the European Champion, the winner of Finnmarksløpet, Femundløpet and La Grande Odyssée and the multiple winner of the Swedish Championship in dog sledding.”

We breed dogs with the capacity and even more importantly the desire to run and run. They can keep going over extremely long distances at a very fast pace. To make the team a dog must be healthy with a good coat, good paws and a great appetite. It’s important that they eat and drink well no matter how tired they are. Most of the dogs on the race team are from our own breedings.
What makes these top athletes so strong and happy? Beyond the excellent blood lines developed at the kennel the dogs have the best food, the best training and the benefit of the musher’s experience. Petter feeds them Bozita ROBUR dog food, starts his training program long before the snow falls and is an expert in dogs and their behavior.
