Grant Beck started out his love of dog mushing as a young boy traveling by dog team on his trap line. Having this connection with the dogs, he developed a successful racing career as a young man, and then a businessman with a flourishing tourism company that provided dog sled rides under the natural beauty of the Aurora Borealis in Yellowknife. Grant’s racing career has afforded him the opportunity to compete in races in Europe and across North America, of which he states, “the Wyoming Stage Stop Race and the Canadian Championship Dog Derby are most memorable.”
