Hello I am Sebastian Schnuelle the owner and operator of Blue Kennels and Dog Sled Trips, which has been in business since 1997.
I am originally from Germany and decided to move to Canada in 1996. Now I divide my time between Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory and Alaska.
Having finished the 1000 Mile Yukon Quest 6 times between 2004 and 2011, winning it in 2009 as well as finishing the 1000 Mile Iditarod 7 times between 2005 and 2011, best finish 2nd place in 2009, I have gathered quite a bit of experience and trail stories. Those I like to share with you.
I share my life with a wonderful " dog gang " or " Monsters " as I lovingly call them. My dogs of choice are Alaskan Huskies. It is not uncommon that 10 dogs sleep on my couches, or inside my tent on the glaicer. I simply love Sled Dogs. There is no other animal on this planet which can run over 100 miles in a day, be happy each and every day. They are wonderful companions of life. They are born to run.
Each fall in November and early december I travel in Europe giving Multimedia Presentations.
In the winter months from late December to early April I invite you to come with me on a Dog Sled Tour, right on the Yukon Quest Trail in Fairbanks Alaska.
My other passions besides Dog Mushing are photography and sailing. My camera is with me where ever I go, be it sailing the beautiful inside passage watching Humpback whales or camping out with a dogteam under a star filled sky with the Northern Lights dancing.
Thank you for visiting my webpage and enjoy the view!
