Dog Talk with Gaetan Pierrard

Yukon Quest: Dog and Musher Care

On a trip to Canada in 2002, Gaetan Pierrard saw the Yukon Quest pass through Dawson City. This event inspired him to immigrate to Canada from Belgium to become a dog musher. After a few years as a handler, he decided to get his own dogs to begin skijoring. His dream was to grow as a musher and kennel, run more dogs and achieve the ultimate goal of running the Yukon Quest. Gaetan realized this dream in both 2016 and 2017.

Gaetan will be giving a special lecture at the museum on July 11th at 1:30pm.  This lecture is included in museum admission and FREE for museum members.
