#12 — LAURA DAUGEREAU from Port Gamble, Washington.

Laura’s interest in sled dogs started when she was 10 and got her first dog — she says she’s been hooked ever since. “This led to a life of my working summers in Washington State for my family’s construction company, then relocating dogs and myself to Montana for fall and winter training,” she continues. She and her dogs travel all over the northern states, Canada and Alaska each year to compete in as many races as they can.
