Let us supplement your curriculum with a visit from one of our retired Iditarod sled dogs.


Trouble visited Lee Eaton Elementary, we watched his mom Karin Hendrickson finish her 7th Iditarod during the presentation. He loved wandering around the classroom visiting with the students.

"Thank you so much for visiting us today!  I appreciate how informative and approachable you were with the students; they were so excited!"

Trouble visited Nordonia Middle School. 7th grade Language Arts Arts teacher Lori Jordan has done an outstanding job bringing the Iditarod to the classroom.  Our favorite question was "who did you root for during the Iditarod".  Our answer "Every dog running!".


We spent the afternoon at North Royalton Middle School courtesy of Traci Schon, English Language Arts teacher.  Her curriculum involves the novels White Fang and The Call Of The Wild.  Trouble's background and personality brought many of the themes in both books to life.  The students were very engaged and inspired by his story.  Their questions were extremely relevant to Trouble and his personality.  Traci was so kind to provide a very thoughtful gift basket of toys and treats!  It is experiences like this that have truly brought Trouble out of his shell, he is so engaged with the students and loves wandering around visiting with them.

"The students and the staff absolutely loved the presentation and Trouble, and I believe it will be something they will remember and treasure for many years to come.  I can't thank you enough for coming in and taking the time and effort to help educate our students!!  Thank you again.  It was a sincere pleasure meeting you and i commend you on your work on behalf of these amazing athletes."
