Had a great visit. Our musher /owner runs the Iditarod every year and knows his stuff had a great ride. He talks about the dogs and we got to play with some puppies. Fun and informative.

We had such a good time on this tour. Though some may be put off by the way these dogs have to be chained up between runs, it is clear that they are well cared for and that they love to run. Yes, the owners are not exactly effusive during their presentation, but their subdued manner was actually kind of entertaining in itself. Eight dogs were hooked up to an ATV (and were clearly very excited to be part of this) and our group then sat down to be taken for a run. I was one of the lucky ones to stand in the back and hold on to the roll bar. Yeah, it seemed a little dangerous, but we had a GREAT time!!! Very exhiliarating! After, we were allowed to pet the dogs (they loved the love we gave them) and then to hold the puppies who were recently born. Our hearts completely melted!

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!!!
