This was a weird experience, the dog mushing is really just dogs running in front of a jeep, some dogs were fighting. The kids liked holding the puppies at the end, but the tour at the Native Heritage Center in Anchorage is better.

It was very interesting to see a typical cabin and hear about the great dogsled race and the dogs didn't seem unhappy but I found the dogsled pulling ( with a car) rather disappointing and the conditions for the dogs not so happy.

We just loved the dogs, their eagerness to run, their cleanliness. Sixty dogs live there and there is no smell and I saw no dog poop! You get into a jeep and it is helping the dogs of course. But they just love to run....More

Kinda lame, but very interesting. Jerry does a nice job of explaining his craft and the sport. He has a large kennel and the dogs all seem happy and cared for. Amazing to see them want to run. Worth the visit - you get a...More

This was our son's favorite excursion on our recent cruise-land tour of Alaska. After reading the negative reviews, we were concerned, but we quickly discovered that those negative reviews were unjust. The owners were friendly but real; let's face it, they've chosen to live in...More
