About Us:  


The Dubit Family

DDR is owned and operated by Gregg, Gretchen, Lydia(15) and Hayden(13) Dubit. It all twenty six started years ago when Gretchen said "I Do" and Gregg thought she said "I do want two kids, thirty dogs, three cats, and three fish to grow old with". This family business is in its twenty fifth year.


Elise Cody

Elise is in her third year with DDR and we are hoping she will never leave. Her love for rivers and dogs keeps her here, but she will have to move on someday. She is pursuing a degree in nursing when not working at the ranch.


Anika Bach

Anika came to us in August after graduating college in Washington. She loves to spend her time outside climbing, biking, and skiing. Anika has never dog sledded before, but she is very excited to learn all about the sport!
