Come meet our dogs, play with our puppies, and learn a little bit about Alaska's state sport before going for a fun dog sled ride. Our tours are kept small, customized to your groups needs, and are very hands on. We look forward to meeting you!

It's really cool that you got to watch how two different Iditarod mushers utilize two different training styles. We like our dogs to be wild and crazy when we hook up, but there is something to be said for the calm demeanor that Noah's dog's...More
