8-DOG CLASSIC LINEUP #5 — Keith Hayes from Parks, Arizona.
Keith lives in a small rural town outside Flagstaff, Arizona bordering the Kaibab National Forest with his girlfriend, 13 Alaskan Huskies, as well as several other animals including goats, chickens and a pig. Almost all of his training is dryland which means winter travel to Colorado, Montana, and Idaho to run on snow. “I am very thankful to my mentors Denise Edwards and Gery Allan for helping me get started in dog-powered sports 5 years ago. I also would not be able to do this without the incredible support of my girlfriend Carly.” This will be their first time in Wyoming and Keith’s first time running the Eukanuba 8-Dog Classic.
