It takes a lot of time, effort, and money to successfully train and prepare a dog team for racing or expeditions. Your sponsorship can help make it happen! 


A donation in any amount will help support the team!

Friends and Fans

You Don't Have to Be a Big Company to Be Part of Blue on Black

  

We receive a lot of support from friends around the world. Whether it's the spare change from under your sofa cushions or a donation towards a specific piece of equipment, every little bit helps!


We have a couple of ideas outlined below, or let us know how you'd like to help.



Cover A Mile On Our Next Adventure - $10

Here's a fun way that almost anyone can join in! Sponsor as many miles as you wish. 


For just $10, you help cover the costs of dog food, booties, equipment, and other costs of running down the trail. It’s an easy way to become involved in an amazing journey and help keep an incredible team of dogs on the trail! 

Join the Expedition Club - $200

The dogs and I are going on a 1,000 mile expedition, and you can come along with us on the journey!


Become a part of the adventure by joining the Expedition Club and get access to exclusive pictures, video, and stories from the trail.


Club membership helps support the dogs and puts you right in the action as I post from the trail.


This content will not go to my regular Facebook feed. Only Expedition Club members will get detailed expedition news from the trail. 

Sponsor a Dog - $500

Each dog is a unique personality and a special member of our kennel. By sponsoring a dog, you help pay the cost to feed, care for, and train that dog for the season. 


Pick your favorite dog to sponsor. One sponsor per dog - first come, first serve so don't let your favorite get away!


We'll list you on our website as a special member of our team. We'll also send you a packet with information all about your dog and send regular updates during training season. Keep an eye out for some really cool souvenirs at the end of the year!


Dog sponsors are welcome to visit us at Blue on Black Kennels and meet their own special dog.

Corporate Sponsors

  

The Iditarod is one of the world’s wildest and toughest challenges. It draws a wide and extremely passionate audience. In addition to sports and adventure magazines, journalists from television, newspapers, and wire services cover the race for an international audience. 

Over the years I have gained a large following among mushing enthusiasts, sports fans, and Alaska communities. Sponsoring me and my dog team is a unique and impactful way to spotlight your business in front of a fresh and excited market.
