Spencer Thew - an Iditarod veteran with 28 years' experience - applies a level of dedication to his kennel of Siberian Huskies rarely seen.  He is committed to the working/racing qualities of this amazing breed.  Although the Siberian Husky is known for excelling in conformation as well as in harness, it is the latter Spencer has chosen to focus on.  Occasionally he has a retired sled dog looking for a retirement home, as well as puppies for sale.  Should a Call of the Wild Siberian Husky not be available, Spencer will be happy to refer you to another reputable breeder.

Sled dog race experience includes such events as the Can-Am 60, Can-Am 250, Sandwich Notch, Bancroft, Marmora, Eldorado, Wawa, Beargease, Craftbury, ALPO, Labrador 400 and the Iditarod - to name but a few...

Spencer - although a quiet, private person by nature - is an advocate for disabled athletes and finds other such means to reach out philanthropically.

Spencer has launched a Lodge/Corporate Retreat - complete with a Mushing 101 curriculum, dog sled touring/clinics/rides and team building at his Club Rocky Top property in the Adirondack Park in Northern New York State.

Depending on his schedule - he still consults at Atlantic Testing Laboratories, a company he founded in 1967 and he is the Director of the Construction Engineering Program  at Clarkson University... he is available to give presentations to small school groups, 4H and other.
