Did you know that we had an article in a national dog magazine?

Sled Dogs As Therapy were asked to be part of the "Facing it together" campaign with help for Heroes.


The campaign drew the attention of K9 magazine who did an interview with us titled:


Therapy dogs helping army veterans with PTSD to smile again


We were deeply honoured to be a part of this campaign. The interview can be viewed through this link. :-)

Ladies and gentlemen, please let me introduce you all to Mackey!


He is the newest edition to our family and is a therapy dog in trianing.


He has been named after the legend musher, and multiple Iditarod and Yukon quest winner, Lance Mackey.


Mackey comes from a line of dogs that have been used for therapy, so we are expecting great things from this little lad. when he is old enough he will take the batton from Mishka and Koda and keep the work of Sled dogs as Therapy Uk going. This will include working and treks with recovering service personnel.

In Ocober 2015 Koda and I completed a 10 day continous expedition, in aid of Help For Heroes.

The event saw us trek through the Midlands, camping on route and carrying all our own gear.


Koda was a real hero on route. She kept me company, kept me safe. It is amazing how deep a bond you develop when working with dogs in this way.


Thank you to all the people who helped with the organisation of this adventure, especially my Wife, Lizeth


Now after a fair few months we are starting to oplan our next adventure. We are looking at doing (off road) coast to coast.

We would love to do this with a team pulling a four wheeled cart, but I think we will backpack it first.
