Webcam: Sled Dog Puppies

We do not expect to have a litter of puppies this year. Please check back for the webcam to return in summer 2024!

In the meantime, you can meet the current sled dogs online and follow their adventures on Facebook and Instagram.

More Than Cute

Why do we breed dogs? Mushing is a cultural tradition across Alaska that dates back many thousands of years. It also provides the National Park Service the most effective available means to patrol vast areas of designated Wilderness during the long winter season.

Managers of the historic Denali sled dog kennels take great care in breeding for qualities suitable for the challenges and responsibilities of a Denali sled dog. Physical traits include long legs to break trail through deep snow, compact paws to resist build up of ice between toes, and sturdy coats and puffy tails to keep warm in the depths of sub-arctic winter. Character traits include tenacity, an unbridled love to pull and run as part of a team, and social skills that tolerate attention of many thousands of admirers to visit the kennels each summer.
