Sled dogs have been bred and born to run

By Julie Ducrocq

Julie has been a veterinarian for the last 15 years. She has also been coming up north for the last ten years on different assignments ranging from rabies vaccination in dogs to sampling caribou for disease. Besides working on the Ivakkak race for the last five years, she experienced working as a trail veterinarian on the Yukon Quest and races in Labrador as well.

  1. I see the excitement in the photo to be at the start of each leg of the race. The huskie dog is also very loyal and protector of the camp. The sounds of howls-singing and talking between the canines is like in a children’s story book of Inuit Huskie Dogs telling the story of pulling a qamutiik on the land. Good fun for you Julie.
