Welcome to Windy Creek Kennel!

Home of sled dog mushers Ken Anderson and Gwen Holdmann

We are based out of Fox, Alaska and compete in races all over North America. We are the first husband and wife team to complete both the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, and have also competed competitively in stage and sprint races across North American as well as in Europe. We have approximately 45 dogs of all ages in our kennel. We lived in a small 14ft by 16ft cabin we built ourselves with no running water or electricity for several years, but just finished our log place recently and are enjoying the luxury of RUNNING WATER for the first time since we moved to Alaska over 15 years ago. It comes in handy especially with our first children, twins Leif and Marais and now our newest child, Lael.  Our lives revolve around the dogs and now our kids, but Gwen is also involved in renewable energy projects throughout Alaska and is currently the Executive Director of the Alaska Center for Energy and Power.

We will update this website regularly via our 'Kennel Updates' link. We plan on constantly adding new information, including regular diary entries on our training and races - so check back often and use our RSS feed to get a notice automatically when we update the site!
