Established in 2004, Snowhook is comprised of race dogs, young dogs, old dogs, dogs who don't think they're dogs, and rescued dogs.
Best-Damn-Handling-Wife, Rebecca made a simple promise to AJ when he told her he wanted to run Iditarod: "I will do everything in my power to get you to the starting line, you have to get the team to the finish line."
Since making that promise, AJ has completed five Iditarod races, won two mid-distance races, has six top five finishes in other mid-distance races (and one sprint race), and received two Humanitarian Awards for giving exceptional dog care on the trail. As the care of our dogs is at the core of Snowhook, the Humanitarian Awards are a bigger honor than any first place finish. AJ also has three nominations for Iditarod's Sportsmanship award to his credit.
Snowhook is running towards the goal of being a top ranked team in the Iditarod and mid-distance races in the next five years while remaining committed to providing quality care to our dogs whether they be our race dogs, retired dogs, young dogs, old dogs, dogs who don't think they're dogs or rescued dogs.
