Douglas Fir Mushing is a mid-distance dog racing team operated by Mandy Nauman located just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The kennel consists of 12 dogs, 7 of which are from Brent Sass and Wild and Free Mushing. All are race veterans and 4 have completed 1,000 mile races. The bonds that Mandy develops and shares with these dogs is remarkable. They are a family that has to trust in each other not only to be successful in races but also to survive in the harshest winter conditions interior and arctic Alaska has to offer.
