Salt’s Lineage
Salt is a natural born leader from the strongest leader line I’ve experienced in my lifetime working with sled dogs. She has been one of the most unique dogs in that we can breed her to any male (even goofy wheelers!) and get a top race leader. Salt loves puppies and she loves being a mother dogs. No matter the trail conditions; slow and tough or pouring on the speed Salt shines. She gives 100% every run, every race. In her race career Salt has given us as close to perfect race performances as we could ask for. The race we did not expect her to excel in was the Copper Basin 300, possibly her best performance to date. It was a tough slog with a few feet of fresh snow and it was a very slow slog. This was a year for small dogs to excel. She made it look easy. Funny enough she was a last minute extra we had not counted as being a key dog in training due to a previous injury. She’d had basically 2.5 weeks off right before the race and knocked out 80 mile runs at half our normal speed (took ages!) like a breeze. She has always had drive and stamina that are through the roof! Salt has an incredible coat, tough feet, very high emotional intelligence, connects strongly with people and has superior endurance. The majority of Salt’s pups have all led as yearlings as well and are leaders in kennels across AK, Europe, and the US. Salt is an excellent mother dog and enjoys spending time with pups from the mother dogs, too.
