Dew Claw Kennel

Join us for your private dog sledding adventure. Dew Claw kennel is home to distance mushers Dan Kaduce, Jodi Bailey, and their kennel of friendly Alaskan Huskies. They are located in beautiful Chatanika, Alaska. They are passionate about dogs and addicted to mushing.

We offer multi-day and overnight camping trips, as well as a day “Learn to Mush” experience. Drive your own team on beautiful trails, enjoy camp cooked meals, relax around the campfire while you watch for Aurora, and sleep comfortably in heated tents. Our private adventures mean you get to set the pace and experienced guides are always with you. Hot meals are cooked at camp with a variety of menu choices. The dogs stay at camp giving you extra time to get to know your canine athletes.

In addition to seeing spectacular scenery while traveling by dog team there is time for photography, exploring by snowshoe, or just hanging out with the dogs at camp. We cater to small groups who prefer a private tour, allowing us to customize the experience. If you have special requests or questions please feel free to contact us.

Dan and Jodi are both accomplished distance racers, veterans of both the Yukon Quest and Iditarod, as are the dogs you will be traveling with. The Dew Claw dogs are a super energetic friendly group. Both dogs and guides are looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm for mushing and the Alaskan outdoors.

Join us for a uniquely Alaskan adventure.
