Kennel Powerun history starts from 2009. Both of us we have had sled dogs long before that, first siberian huskies and nowadays our kennel is consisting mostly with alaskan huskies. Riku has a long history on racing first with the siberian huskies (mid distance), then with sprint dogs (eurohounds) and today he is racing in long distance races, often in 8-dogs class, the distances being 200 - 550 km per race. 16 of our best dogs are in the racing team to be trained and prepared for the long distances.
Sanna has a history as well with the siberian huskies, and normally racing in a 6-dogs class in mid distance races. This gives a good chance to take the young dogs into their first race and get to know the race routines and know how to travel.
