Team and Trail
Long distance sled dog races, or just trips by dogteam... My goal with this blog is simply to help support the history, spirit, passion and love for dog teams and the trails they run.

Dog Gone Addiction

The International award winning film by Becky Bristow, 'Dog Gone Addiction,' has been has been shown at film festivals across North America and Europe and has won numerous awards and accolades including Best Adventure Film, Explorers Club film festival, New York; Best Adventure Sports Film, Taos Mountain Film Festival, New Mexico; Special Jury Award, Whistler Film Festival, British Columbia.

Dog Gone Addiction follows three women, Michelle Phillips, a young Canadian mother; Agata Franczak, a 48-year-old Polish adventurer and Kelley Griffin, Alaskan veteran, as they test their limits driving their dog teams through record cold temperatures and over icy mountain passes amid mental exhaustion in the 1000 mile Yukon Quest sled dog race from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory to Fairbanks Alaska. The film shows the women's struggles to overcome -60 dergee Celsius temps, exhaustion, sick dogs, mountain passes, and the remote wilderness of the Yukon and Alaska to achieve their goals of not just finishing but, racing the toughest sled dog race on earth. Included in the DVD are 55 minutes of extra features, commentary from racing legend Hans Gatt, and tons of footage showing all the characters that make up the Yukon Quest race.

There's a video clip from the film, and Dog Gone Addiction makes a great gift; order from Wild Soul Creations.
