|Well, what can we say? We love dogs! Allan and I (Tabby as most people call me) own and operate Deer Creek Sleddogs along with our 4 children: Tyler, Josie, Taylor and Allison. Besides the fulltime kennel, Allan works in the Oil and Gas Industry as a safety manager. I work as a CPA for an accounting firm as a tax manager
Our kennel is currently located in central Wyoming and averaging around 40-50 dogs. It isn't the most ideal sleddog environment (you know...majestic mountains or infinite amounts of snow), but we can train out of the yard for up to 30 miles on dirt and the closest mountain is only a 40 minute drive. This craziness all started in 1995 when I was first introduced to sleddogs. I remember when I first heard someone actually owned 20 dogs, What? 20? Serious? Now, I think how in the world could you own less than 20! The first 5 or 6 years we ran rescue Siberians recreationally (beautiful purebred siberians, just sitting in the pound!) Back then we only had 15 dogs. now that is only a bed and couch full of dogs. Those pound puppies were the best dogs! We'll always treasure the memories of them.
Around 2003, I thought it was time to start a competitive team and try out racing. One by one the Seppala stock filtered into the kennel. I went to my first race with an extended cab pickup, five veri-kennels, 3 kids, a husband, no idea what I was doing, and very high hopes. Me and my 5 dogs did it, it was horrible, but we did it! What I learned from that experience was to definitely get more dogs. What Allan learned was that he didn't want to sit at the truck. I bought more purebreds and Allan bought his first team of Alaskan Huskies. The rest is still history in the making.
See you on the trail
