Douglas Fir Mushing is a mid-distance dog racing team operated by Mandy Nauman & Matt Austin. Located outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The kennel consists of 18 dogs. Veteran dogs that have finished mutiple 200, 300 and 1,000 mile races, puppies that have not yet been given the chance to race, and pet/retired dogs that are now the cheerleaders!
The bonds that we develop and share with these dogs is remarkable. We 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.
