Of all the places we visited while in Alaska, this was the most anticipated. Was definitely not disappointed !! Nothing like being surrounded by so many beautiful, strong and energetic pups who love to run. And run they did.....with their pack leader and Iditarod veteran Jerry guiding us through an impressive demonstration of their capabilities and training. The icing on the cake was getting to hold the puppies ! Thanks to Jerry and the staff of four legged customer service representatives for making this an unforgettable experience.

My partner and I went on this tour. My partner has always wanted to do this activity since she was young. It was very exciting on the ATV with the dogs. The dogs are truly bred to run and just goooo! We also had to opportunity to hold some puppies!!!

A remarkable tour that I would highly recommend. Jerry our guide has run the Iditarod for many years. His knowledge was shared openly and no question went unanswered. The ride was more fun than I expected! The dogs were amazing and it was so refreshing to know that the owners knew everyone of their names and personalities. ( over 65 dogs) it shows how much they care for their animals and the treatment that they receive was evident. This should be one of the tours on the top of your list.

Dogs in Alaska are born to run - they love it! After the dogs were all clamoring to be the ones chosen, the twelve finalists were hitched to an ATV (as we rode along) that kept them to the ten miles per hour they need to learn to maintain over the arduous course of the Iditarod, then splashed in a stream to cool down before taking us back. Jacob Vallee, a promising musher, guided us through it all, with interesting insight into the training of a sled dog. They also had puppies, which were a delight. Very enjoyable!
