Welcome to Blue on Black Kennels.

We are a small distance kennel located in Alaska, a little bit north of Willow, a little bit south of Talkeetna.


Mushers: Varan Hoyt & Karin Hendrickson





WhyBlue on Black?


a. Blue on Black is often the color of our bodies during mushing season.  Running dogs is not a calm stroll the forest - it can be pretty rough. Just check out our stories page!


b. Blue on Black is a song by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. We're only fanatics about a few things here at Blue on Black. Running dogs is one, Kenny's music is another.  He's an incredible guitar player, and you can check out his "hard blues" here.
