The importance of dog care on the part of mushers is recognized at all major races.

Frank was honoured with receiving the Veterinarian’s Choice Award in both the 1991 and 2001 Yukon Quests.  1991 was the first year this award was presented. He is one of only a few mushers to have received this award twice.  He also received an honourable mention for dog care almost every year in  between.
