About me

Location Chugiak, Alaska, United States
Introduction TouchMeNot Siberians is a small, working-showing kennel of AKC registered Siberian Huskies located in Chugiak, Alaska. Our kennel is named after TouchMeNot Mountain located in the Moreno Valley in Northern New Mexico, outside the tiny town of Eagle Nest, New Mexico. At the time our kennel was named, there were no trails to the top of this mountain. To reach the summit, was a challenge, though one worth taking. A lot like raising Siberians. Although, Tom got his first Siberian Husky in 1988, the TouchMeNot kennel started while stationed in Oklahoma City in 1993 when Tom and Mary bought their first Siberian Husky as a couple. It wasn’t until the right girl came along, who we felt represented the breed and could offer something back to it, that we bred our first litter. In August 2004, the first TouchMeNot Siberians were born. Commonly referred to as the Pack, many of the dogs on the team have achieved or are working towards their AKC championships and/or their working pack dog titles, in addition to their sled dog titles. Tom and Mary are members of the Siberian Husky Club of America, Siberian Husky Club of the Last Frontier and the Chugiak Dog Musher’s Association.
