Welcome to Howling Ridge Kennel in Two Rivers, Alaska. The kennel is home to husband and wife distance sled dog racers Jeremy and Shaynee Traska. At the young age of nine, Shaynee (Seipke) told her parents she wanted to race the Iditarod someday. Shaynee formed Howling Ridge Kennel when she began training and racing her own team of dogs at age 14. What began as a four-dog team in Gladwin, Michigan is now a forty-dog kennel in the heart of Alaskan mushing country. The
kennel is racing competitively against some of the best sled dog teams in the
world. Jeremy and Shaynee raise, train, and love their dogs from birth and have
an amazing connection with their “kids”.
