Our customers often ask us what the difference between the DuraCoat and the ThermoCoat is. Here is a simple explanation.

DuraCoat:

  • Medium weight, simple dog coat.
  • Great value for the money for someone on a tighter budget.
  • The outer shell is durable.
  • The neck opening is a fixed fit.
  • The measurement of the neck circumference is crucial while selecting the correct size.
  • The coat might be difficult to fit dogs with thick necks.
  • DuraCoat does not provide full belly coverage. Layering with one of our Chest Protectors is recommended if needed.
  • PRODUCT DETAILS

ThermoCoat:

  • A heavy weight dog coat.
  • The neck opening is adjustable.
  • Coat will fit a majority of the breeds out there.
  • ThemoCoat provides full belly coverage.
  • PRODUCT DETAILS

IMPORTANT NOTICE: While shopping, select your size carefully. Our coats are non-returnable, non-exchangeable.

We are here to help you choose the correct size if needed. If in doubt, please contact us. You can contact us via email at ivana@howlingdogalaska.com.

jeff2016portraitJEFF KING (Alaska, USA) – long distance mushing

We are proud to have Jeff King, THE KING, aboard for yet another racing season! Howling Dog Alaska has been one of Jeff’s main sponsors for many years now. Jeff, a four time Iditarod Sled Dog Race Champion and a world class musher, is known for his creativity and willingness to experiment. He has started many trends in mushing – beginning with the use of short harnesses and running without necklines to redesigning the long distance dog sled and much more. Howling Dog is very proud of the long relationship we have had with Jeff. Follow and cheer for Jeff during the 2017 Iditarod Sled Dog race! Visit his kennel located just outside of Denali National Park in the summer.

Visit Jeff’s Husky Homestead website.

Jeff’s harness of choice is our Hybrid Light Weight Harness.

 

 

aliyallen2016ALIY ZIRKLE & ALLEN MOORE (Alaska, USA) – long distance mushing

Here they are! The famous wife & husband duo, the owners of SP Kennel in Two Rivers, Alaska, dedicated to the individual dog through excellent health, nutrition, training and care. Aliy races the Red Team and Allen races the Black Team. The goals and strategies for each team vary from race to race, so their dogs may run on either team at any time. Every winter Aliy and Allen compete in many mid and long distance events but their focus is one: The Copper Basin 300, the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race and the Iditarod  Sled Dog Race. Aliy and Allen are both Yukon Quest Champions. Allen has won the Copper Basin 300 six times and Aliy has placed in the top five in the Iditarod for the last five years (placing second three consecutive years: 2012, 2013 and 2014). Howling Dog is thrilled to have Aliy and Allen aboard for another season, as they both strive to be good-will ambassadors for the sport of sled dog racing, balancing winning performance with exceptional sportsmanship, community outreach and advocacy for the amazing Alaska husky.

Follow Aliy & Allen on their blog, The SP Kennel Dog Log.

The SP Kennel’s harness of choice has been our Distance Harness for many years now.

 

melissajason2016MELISSA OWENS STEWART & JASON STEWART (Alaska, USA) – long distance mushing

Melissa and Jason, the owners of the Owl Creek Kennel in Knik, Alaska, are both really excited for the upcoming season. Melissa is signed up for the Quest 300, and she is also planning on competing in the 2017 Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Jason will be running the Knik 200, Copper Basin 300 and most likely the Willow 300. They are also looking at having teams in a couple other races, so it will be a busy race season for them. Here at Howling Dog we have a special “soft spot” for Melissa and Jason, as the lineage of the majority of their dogs goes back to dogs bred in our Howling Dog Kennel.

Connect with Melissa through her Facebook page.

The harness of choice for Melissa’s and Jason’s dogs is our Tough Skin Harness ULTRA.

 

 

 

amanda2016AMANDA VOGEL (Minnesota, USA) – mid distance mushing

Amanda was introduced to the sport of mushing in 2003, and after a few years of learning the basics from a recreational dog sledding club, she began building a kennel that would allow her to race professionally. Today, Amanda is the owner and operator of Snomad Racing. She was awarded Rookie of the Year, earned a 4th place finish, and passed an Iditarod qualifying race. All while competing in her first nearly 400 mile, 2013 John Beargrease Marathon. Starting this year, Snomad racing will be offering sled dog rides during their fall training season in the comforts of a fully enclosed and heated 5 seat side by side! Amanda also travels for exhibitions and speaking engagements, works on TV, film, and modeling projects, and puts winter and mushing products to extreme tests for sponsors committed to making the toughest gear and equipment on the market. When Amanda is not training and racing, she is found volunteering for the Kabetogama Fire Department, raising pups, exploring woods and waters, and laughing with good friends.

If you would like to meet Amanda’s dogs or to learn more about the training of canine athletes, visit Snomad Racing website.

Amanda’s harness of choice is our Distance Harness.

aliandjasper2016ALI WYLLIE (Scotland, UK) – canicross

We are happy to welcome the newest member of Team Howling Dog! Ali is the co-founder of Cani-Sports Edinburgh, Scotland’s first canicross club. She has developed the club and chaired it to where it is today, standing down as chair this year to focus on her own quests. She has directed a number of sell out canicross races and competed in canicross throughout Scotland for the past few years always securing a podium place with her rescue German Shorthair Pointer Zac. However, short canicross races are not her forte, she prefers hitting the trails, training for ultra-marathons with her Vizsla; Jasper who can easily run 40 miles with her – the perfect trail dog. Jasper and Zac are Ali’s Hairy Kidz and are her world. During the 2016/2017 season Ali is looking forwards to competing in the Cani-Sports Edinburgh canicross race at Foxlake, a race she set up and directed for the last few years, a course she designed and loves. She is excited to experience the race from the other side. She is also looking forward to a number of Cani-Sports Scotland and Cani-Fit races. The canicross scene in Scotland is buzzing.  Ali herself has a 38 mile hill race coming up – sadly this is dog-less. Ali is looking forwards to showcasing our Howling Dog Alaska equipment in the canicross and trail running communities on the other side of the pond. Welcome aboard, Ali!

Follow Zac’s and Jasper’s adventures on their Hairy Kidz Adventures Facebook page.

Ali’s harness of choice is our Second Skin Harness.

Jeff2014JEFF KING  (Alaska) – long distance

We are honored to have been working with Jeff, the KING, for many years now.  Jeff, a four time Iditarod Sled Dog Race Champion, is not only a world class musher, but what matters the most is that he ALWAYS puts the safety of his dogs first. Jeff is also known for his creativity and willingness to experiment. He has started many trends in mushing – beginning with the use of short harnesses and running without necklines to redesigning the long distance dog sled and much more. Howling Dog is very proud of the long relationship we have had with Jeff. Follow and cheer for Jeff during the 2016 Iditarod Sled Dog race!

Aliy&Allen2015ALLEN MOORE & ALIY ZIRKLE (Alaska) – long distance

Allen and Aliy are an accomplished husband and wife team. Allen, a Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race champion and Aliy, an Iditarod Sled Dog Race runner up, have a huge fan following. It has to do not only with their performance but also with their approach to mushing – including exceptional dog care. Aliy and Allen own a relatively small kennel in Two Rivers (Alaska) and pretty much every dog gets to race. Having such high race success with a small kennel is a big accomplishment. We are very proud to have Allen and Aliy representing Howling Dog!

Follow and cheer for Allen and his Black Team during his adventures in the 2016 Yukon Quest and follow and root for Aliy and her Red Team during her running the 2016 Iditarod: The SP Kennel Dog Log

Heidi2015HEIDI SUTTER (Alaska) – long distance

Heidi, a lively and fun girl from Chistochina, Alaska, joined Team Howling Dog last season and immediately made us proud by finishing her first ever Iditarod Sled Dog Race! Heidi is a special education teacher and if she is not busy with her dogs, she is devoting her life to children. Heidi specializes in working with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders as well as emotional disturbance. Even though Heidi’s work load won’t allow her to take the time off to run any of the big long distance races this winter, she will be entering a couple of middle distance races, including the Copper Basin 300. Look for Heidi’s name in race results and cheer for the canine athletes from her KMA Kennel.

Do you need a nice coffee mug? How about a new hoodie? View KMA Kennel Merchandise.

Heidi’s harness of choice is our Light Weight Harness.

 

 

Melissa&JasonMELISSA & JASON STEWART (Alaska) – long distance

Melissa & her husband Jason are new to Team Howling Dog, although we have known Melissa since she was a junior musher. A few years ago she moved her Owl Creek Kennel from Nome, Alaska to Knik, Alaska. The majority of the dogs in the kennel were bred and raised by Melissa herself. We are very proud of the fact that the foundation of Melissa’s breeding program is based on several key dogs she purchased from our Howling Dog Kennel. There are about 50 dogs in Owl Creek Kennel including pups and three retired dogs. Melissa is signed up to run the 2016 Iditarod Sled Dog Race and prior to that both Melissa and Jason are planning on entering a couple of mid-distance races. Their overall goal for this winter is to get a happy and healthy team to Nome in the Iditarod. We are wishing you the best of luck, guys! 🙂

DogBall

How to keep your dog cool:

•Never leave your dog alone in the car – a car can reach up to 120-140 degrees in the sun in a very short time.
•Always carry an extra bottle of water for your dog, whether you are on a walk or taking a short trip in the car.
•Do not exercise your dog during the heat of the day – try for early morning or evening.
•If you are enjoying an outdoor summer day at the beach or barbeque, always provide shade for your dog.
•Be extra careful with older, ill and overweight animals in hot weather as they are very sensitive to heat.
•Certain breeds, termed brachycephalic (short-headed), are at greater risk for heat-related illness. Brachycephalic breeds include French bulldogs, English bulldogs and pugs, among others. These breeds should be exercised with extreme caution. A simple walk around the block may cause their temperature to rise to dangerous or even life-threatening levels. Keep them in cool, air-conditioned areas on hot days.
•Do not give your dog a short cut, fur acts as an insulation. Don’t shave your dog as this can increase the risk of sunburn.
•Be aware and very careful of hot pavement; it can burn your dog’s paw pads.
•Bring a handheld fan with you to direct toward your dog if your dog seems to be getting hot.

 

What to do if your dog becomes overheated:

If your dog does become overheated, spray your dog down with room temperature or cool water, but never ice water. Ice-cold water causes a decrease in blood flow to the skin, and heat can’t escape the body, which makes heat exhaustion symptoms worse. Alternatively, you can wrap the feet of your dog in wet towels to help bring your dog’s temperature down. Once your dog stops panting, be careful not to overcool, as this can be equally dangerous to your vulnerable dog.

Also, be sure not to give sports drinks to dogs, which can actually harm animals and make dogs sick.

Lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea and dark red gums are all signs of heat-related distress. If your dog is panting uncontrollably or collapses, take him to your veterinarian or nearest emergency veterinary hospital immediately.

With a little planning, you can make the most of your summer days and keep your dog safe from the heat all season long.

Here at Howling Dog Alaska we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. This means not only bringing you the best equipment, but also the best information. An educated consumer is a happy consumer. Here we are providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision as to which harness is best suited for your personal situation.

Experience makes the difference. Through many years of working with top racing sled dogs professionals at Howling Dog Alaska have designed innovated harnesses that overcome the deficiencies seen in many other harnesses on the market. The following images are examples of poorly fitting / poorly designed harnesses followed by images of properly fitting harnesses. This article should guide you to a correct and comfortable harness selection.

1. This is an example of a harness with a strap positioned horizontally across the chest. This type of a harness will quite often press on the upper front leg / upper shoulder and it will ride up the dogs neck obstructing the trachea. The verdict: BAD HARNESS CHOICE for pulling dogs. Use any of these three harnesses instead.

BadFitJulius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. This front clip harness (also called a “no pull” harness) puts pressure on the dog’s upper legs often causing rubbing and severely restricting the dog’s leg movement. The verdict: BAD HARNESS CHOICE for any dog. Use this harness instead.

BadFitFrontClip

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. The design of the harness below causes for the harness to ride up very high up the dog’s throat restricting breathing. You can also see the webbing rubbing in the armpits. The verdict: BAD HARNESS CHOICE for any dog, most importantly for pulling dogs. Use any of these three harnesses instead.

BadFitShortHarness

 

 

 

 

4. The below is an example of a poorly fitted harness for bikejoring. The harness used in this photo is an x-back harness. This type of a harness tends to lift up and it will not support the dog’s body shape properly. An x-back harness also might twist to the side resulting in the breast plate sliding into the dog’s armpit causing discomfort and often rubbing. The verdict: BAD HARNESS CHOICE for bikejoring and scootering and for any other activity with a higher point of attachment. Use this harness instead.

BadFitBikejoring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Many people make the mistake of fitting the necks on their x-back harnesses too large. This will result in the breast plate sliding in to the armpit causing discomfort and rubbing. This is also the case with x-back harnesses with a single wide breast plate. The verdict: An x-back harness with a single wide breast plate or an x-back with a neck opening that is too large is a BAD HARNESS CHOICE for any sled dog. Use this harness instead.

BadFitBreastPlate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Do not use regular x-back harnesses in any activity with a low point of attachment. The x-back harness is going to push on the dog’s rear end, restricting the dog’s lower back movement. The verdict: An x-back harness is a BAD HARNESS CHOICE for wheel dogs, for kick sledding, for tire training or for any other activity with a low point of attachment. Use this harness instead.

BadFitHipPressure

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. The below image  is an example of a properly fitted harness with an even pull force distribution. Notice the pull force being evenly distributed from the top and from the bottom of the harness. The verdict: This is a VERY COMFORTABLE harness for any puling dog with point of attachment higher or even with the dog’s back. See this or this harness.

GoodFitSecondSkin

 

 

 

 

8. This type of x-back harness features a unique neck opening construction that actually pulls the lower part of the neck opening away from the dog’s throat while the dog is pulling. The verdict: This is a VERY COMFORTABLE x-back harness for any hard working sled dog with  (in this case any broad chested sled dog). See this harness.

GoodFitHound

 

 

 

 

 

9. This is a close up shot of the x-back harnesses mentioned above. The unique neck opening construction pulls the lower part of the neck opening away from the dog’s throat while the dog is pulling. The wide breast plate will keep the harness centered on the dog’s chest. The verdict: This is a VERY COMFORTABLE x-back harness with superior pull force distribution (this harness is suited for broad chested dogs). See this harness.

GoodFitHound1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10. Looking for a harness for activities with lower point of attachment? The x-back style harness shown relieves the pressure off the dog’s lower back. Also the back end of the harness is flexible and moves up an down as the dog runs without restricting the dog’s rear end. The verdict: This is an IDEAL HARNESS for wheel dogs, for kick sledding, for tire training or for dogs with lower back problems. See this harness.
