Denali NP, Alaska (KINY) – The live Denali Sled Dog Puppy Cam is back at Denali National Park and Preserve.
This year’s litter was born on June 18th. You can watch the live stream here.
The sire is Steward, a park lead dog, and the lady, Olive, comes from a well-respected partner kennel in Healy.
Breeding and separating litters with partners bolsters the health of the kennel bloodline, as well as the health of all freight-style Alaskan huskies.
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the operation, these puppies share their names with the first dogs acquired by Harry Karstens to patrol the park in 1922: Bos’n, Skipper, Dynamite, Mike and Rowdy.
For a hundred years, the Denali Sled Dog Kennels has been the National Park Service’s only sled dog kennel and one of the oldest sled dog kennels in the nation.
While the role of kennels has evolved over time, human and canine rangers have worked together since 1922 to maintain the tradition of preserving the park’s vast wilderness through a team of dogs.
Denali dogs are true working dogs; they continue to haul materials into Denali’s two million acres of federally designated wilderness area.
