Welcome to Team Evergreen Kennel where we specialize in mid-distance racing as well as sled dog rides. Our kennel is based in Skandia, MI (about a half hour south of Marquette, MI off of highways 41 and 94). Yearly, we receive lake effect snow giving us some of the most beautiful trails in the area.
The dogs' health and safety is our number one priority, and we take pride in our everyday care of the animals. We live by, "Happy, healthy dogs" during all of our racing events and daily practices. We were honored to recieve the Cooley Challenge Award at the 2011 UP200, which is voted by the vets, for best dog care.
The dogs of Team Evergreen are housed on 160 acres of land owned by Carol Wiater. The entire operation includes 19 dogs: 12 dogs in training and 7 puppies who will soon be the core of our team for Iditarod 2017. Occasionally, we will have some wonderful retired dogs looking for retirement homes. Please check out the page: Retired under The Dogs tab for more information on our dogs that are looking for homes.
