When Miami dentist Ted Brooks learns that his birth mother has passed away and that he was named in her will, he travels to Alaska to claim his inheritance. Rather than the large chunk of change that many people would expect, Ted instead receives his mother's pack of rowdy sled dogs and her property. Although the dogs seemingly have it in for Ted, he decides to keep the dogs and race them in the local race, the Arctic Challenge, spiting a mountain man who wants the dogs. What follows is a comedy detailing Ted's adventures in learning to run the sled dogs.Written by
Ted's dogs are inside looking out the window of their home. Nana, the mutt, scratches at the window, while Demon jumps up on hay bales between two of the dogs. Bales of hay were placed next to the window. The dogs were placed on their marks on the hay bales by trainers. Two trainers hid inside and seven others stood outside the windows using verbal cues to get the dogs to look in different directions. The dog that played Demon was verbally cued by a trainer hiding inside the barn to jump up on the bales between two dogs that were already seated by the window. Nana was also verbally cued to paw at the window by a trainer. See more »

Demon's got it in his head that he's the alpha dog. You've gotta show him who's boss! Bite him on the ear!
I am not putting any part of that dog in my mouth!

In the opening credits, the names of cast and crew members have a dog house instead of the letter A, bones instead of I and paws instead of the letter O. These three symbols also accompany the end credits, only this time they keep to the sides of the screen instead of filling in for letters. See more »

Entertaining, several laugh comedy
Very entertaining story of a Miami dentist who travels to Alaska when notified of biological mother's death. He finds love, a father and ownership of a pack of head strong sled dogs. I would define as an entertaining, several laugh comedy, worth adding to your viewing list.
