We are Peter & Joyce Duncan, we used to live just south of Edinburgh in Scotland, but now we are ensconced in the heart of dogsledding country, Willow, Alaska. We are home to around 50 Siberian huskies and Seppala Siberian Sled Dogs and one German Shepherd dog. I feed, care for, scoop for, train and run the dogs. My wife used to work just to feed me and the dogs, but now she has given up the easy professional life for one of kennel slavery, she also loves the dogs and allows more of them to live in the house than we probably ever intended.
In the summer of 2009, we moved ourselves and all our dogs over to Alaska. The prospect of longer trails, better (dogsledding) weather and a plethora of 200 – 300 mile races are what drew us. Our kennel grew from the 16 dogs we arrived with to the number it is now. As part of that, we were finally able to become a Seppala Siberian Sleddog kennel, a long held dream that the Atlantic Ocean had always thwarted.
We still have all our Siberian Huskies, and they, along with our Seppala Siberians form our kennel, our training pool and our race team.
We are one of a small group of kennels devoted to the SSSD, scattered across the USA and Canada.
