About Us

Sled Dog Systems is a family run business in Willow Alaska. Dan, Kim, Josh & Dakota Schlosser have been involved in mushing & racing dogs for 18 years and have owned Sled Dog Systems since 2008. We are active in promoting the sport of dog mushing from sprint to distance & everything in between. We enjoy building and designing sleds that are truly engineered for speed. More importantly, we enjoy meeting people from around the world that have the same passion for dog powered sports as us. We currently have a kennel of 40 dogs in Willow Alaska. We moved from Wisconsin to Alaska in 2012 to chase the dream, and that was the best decision we’ve made!

Here’s some background on us. Dan & Kim have many years experience of machining & manufacturing precise parts for the aviation industry. Dan is currently a welder goes around to remote villages across Alaska in the summer fixing construction equipment. Kim is the executive director of the local transit system in the Willow & Talkeetna area. She is also a vet tech and is a big help keeping the dogs at their best. Josh is a heavy equipment mechanic & travels across Alaska in the summer to work on construction equipment. He is also an aviation inspector & mechanic and owns Willow Customs. He makes & designs all of our sled bags for our sleds. Dakota is also a heavy equipment mechanic & travels across Alaska in the summer to work on construction equipment. When Dakotas not wrenching, you’ll find him driving truck or operating equipment.

See you on the trails!
