Meet your host, Jacob Betker

My name is Jacob Betker and I am a first generation immigrant from Germany presently residing in Treaty 9 traditional territory. I am a dog musher, and the founder of Abitibi Sled Dogs kennel, established in 2019. I have been a musher for 15 years. I developed a strong interest in Ontario cultural heritage and history as it relates to the foundation of Northern communities and the integral role of sled dogs in this fascinating and storied history. Join us for a sled dog touring experience travelling the vast Northern Boreal with my best friends. I love to share my passion of dog powered sports and local history, so come let us take you along for a ride to chase the wind through the boreal forest and experience what its like to travel the North with sled dogs.
