If you know anything about mushing you have heard of the name Mackey. The family is as much to the sport as dogs and sleds. Starting with Dick and followed by his sons, Rick, Lance and Jason, the Mackey’s have been a force to be reckoned with since the earliest days of the Iditarod.
Jason got his start in mushing at an early age up in Coldfoot, Alaska where his family ran the Coldfoot truck stop. He says that he and his brothers would go to school for a couple hours and then hit the trails. His education was as much about books as it was dogs!
In this episode you will get to know Jason and what makes him one of the best dog trainers in Alaska. Take a moment to listen in. You will be glad you did.
