Michela Kärkkäinen

Michela is a 27-year old sleddog sports athlete from Sipoo, Finland who only trains and races with other teams’ dogs. She started three years ago as a handler and second driver for Supreme Racing Sleddog kennel, where Ville Halme mentored her until he finished his career with some of the fastest sprint dogs in the world.

Currently she is racing with Happy Dog Racing Team & Riitta Kempe, as well as V-P Lehtomäki and Jenni Kreivi. Her ambition is to experience as many facets of the sport as possible before one day starting her own team. 

“The dogs deserve only the best and I really love this sport, where I can experience how well-trained and happy dogs perform at the highest level. I want to show you can make it to the top on the sport even if living in the city, without your own kennel” -Michela
