Charley's Sled Dog Kennel
Wasilla, Alaska

Home to 2014, 2015 & 2017 Iditarod race finisher Charley Bejna who is also a type 1 Diabetic, with an Insulin Pump.
Iditarod 2018

Charley's Sled Dog Kennel is located in Knik, Alaska which is located 1 hour north of Anchorage. The kennel has 22 racing dogs and 8 retired dogs which are owned and cared for by Charley Bejna.  I am a one person operation, so it sometimes takes awhile to respond to emails on this website. I appreciate your continued patience.

I would like to thank all of our great sponsors for making this possible to continue mushing in mid-distance races and in the Iditarod.  We appreciate it very much and always welcome any type of donations to the kennel throughout the year.  I am racing in the 2018 Iditarod to raise awareness that being a type 1 diabetic may slow you down, but you can still live a normal life as long as you take care of yourself.



Welcome to the new website!  I will be adding new pages, and updating the current information on a weekly basis.

We have a new kennel name and a new mailing address:

I decided to take a 6 dog team out to see how the trails were on dogsled. The trails were melting a bit as it was 45 degrees in Knik.
