Mounted Placard – Photography by Julien Schroder, Layout by Jack Hintz

As a “Thank You” all team members receive a 2017-18 Black Team Certificate as well as a mounted dog team placard ~ using the stunning images by Julien Schroder of and designed by Jack Hintz. We owe much gratitude to Julien who has allowed us to use his images.

(Find out about the joining the Red Team here!)

The Join the Team program runs on a seasonal basis. We clear the rosters of the Red and Black Team members at the start of each season in October, then add team members to the new season’s list. Team membership packets are sent out starting in November until the end of March.

If you prefer to pay by check you can send it along with your mailing details to: SP Kennel, PO Box 16226, Two Rivers, Alaska 99716. Remember to let us know you team member’s name. If you are purchasing a team membership as a Christmas present we recommend you do so before November 15. Let us know by email if you at: if you wish us to delay displaying the team member’s name on the roster so we don’t spoil the surprise!

Official Team Certificates change every year to show the season of membership. So Join the Team every year and collect them all!
