Welcome to Our Virtual Dog Yard
The A-team is comprised of our Pocket Aces ranging in age from 2 to 7 years old. Click on the pictures below to learn more about each dogs poker face and their role in the team.
Engineered for Performance
The Smokin' Ace Dog Yard is comprised of many different lineages of Alaskan Huskies. The core of the kennel comes from Hall bloodlines, but also include bloodlines from Mackey, Buser, King, Little, Gatt, Kleedahn, Bartlett and Hayashida. The vast pool of genetics allows us to have a self-sustaining dog yard of healthy & strong k-9 athletes.
Each dog brings a different asset to the table, whether it's the dogs drive to always pull forward, their seamless gait or the dogs hearty eating habits, it all adds up in the end. In turn, we hope that these qualities manifest themselves into a team with extreme strength, devotion and endurance to overcome the many challenges that we face on the trail.
The B-team is comprised of yearlings, but also includes puppies who have yet to be harness trained. These guys are the future of the kennel and are valued as such. Click each picture below to get you fill of puppy joy!
What it takes to become a Smokin' Ace
Sled dog puppies are born to run and we try to give our Smokin' Ace pups every opportunity to do just that! Early on in life they go on many puppy walks, chasing us on four wheelers and snow machines as they get faster. By the age of 5-6 months old, the pups are harness trained by putting them in a team position and stopping intermittently over a short distance to give them praise and rewards. These guys catch on quick! By the time they are yearlings, they are running 20+ miles and rearing to go further. At 2-3 years old, they finally reach a mature enough level to start training and racing with the A-team. Scroll through our future Pocket Aces and pick your favorite little one to follow down the trails!
Become a Puppy Sponsor!
For every litter born here at Smokin' Ace Kennels, we will pick a lucky "BINGO!" puppy to be named by one of our special benefactors! Each year, as sponsorships are renewed, the "BINGO" sponsor will get first choice on whether or not they would like to continue their support through the following race season. Having developed a long standing relationship with the dog, when the time comes for "BINGO" to retire from the sled dog life, you will be our first option for a forever home for "BINGO". Be assured that there is NO obligation to adopt a sled dog, but we want our devoted "BINGO" sponsors to know they will be first in line, if they so choose. This is our way of developing a retirement plan for our beloved sled dogs for the years to come.
