Voluntary Kennel Inspection Program

Mush with P.R.I.D.E. has established a voluntary kennel inspection program. We hope this will raise the standard of sleddog care. We hope this program will be applicable to kennels anywhere in the world, or will serve as a model for other certification programs. The P.R.I.D.E. Board firmly believes that if we mushers conduct ourselves responsibly then we will be less likely to suffer from unknowing governmental regulation. We hope that this program is a demonstration of the fact that we can responsibly take care of our own.


The documents are purposely given in protected form to make them difficult to modify. Please distribute them to all who might be affected or interested, but do not make changes. We welcome changes to improve the program, contact P.R.I.D.E. if you have concerns.


If you wish to have your kennel certified by Mush with P.R.I.D.E. download the Kennel Inspection document and review the requirements.  A designated inspector is defined as:

         A licensed veterinarian, or

         A veterinary technician, as designated by a licensed veterinarian, or

         An animal enforcement officer, or

         A commissioned law enforcement officer (village safety officer in bush Alaska) or bylaw officer (Canada)


Only designated inspectors are authorized to act as inspectors under the voluntary kennel inspection program.  Please note that Mush with P.R.I.D.E. Board members are NOT authorized to do inspections.


After the completed and signed kennel inspection documents are received by the Board, a certificate of inspection will be mailed to the member stating the level of certification that the kennel has achieved.  The fee for certification is $25 USD.  Payment must be received prior to a certificate being issued.
