It was a wonderful experience! It was fun seeing the Iditarod trophies they had one and we were fortunate enough to have the lead team from this years Iditarod race lead our team! It was quite a thrill! And of course the puppies are always fun!

A 78 year old grandpa and 11 year old twins.

It was a wonderful experience, especially for my 11 year old twin granddaughters, who love dogs. Their 78 year old grandpa was lucky enough to be able to safely drive the cart pulled by four huskies. It was one of the highlights of our Alaska trip.

A few of the best hours of our trip

What a great afternoon we had. Loved getting up close with the dogs and a chance to get a ride on the trail. We didn't fully appreciate Dallas' achievements until after we had left and read up on all the wins and visited the Iditarod museum in Wasilla. Now we feel honored to have been at the kennels and with the pups. Thanks for the amazing day. Kudos to the team and to Dallas on the great tour and great team.

Dogs and Excitement: The Ultimate Combo
Paul

If you have ever dreamed of meeting and petting 100 dogs, including puppies, then this is the trip for you. Learn to ride and control a dog sled, even without snow, on this large ranch's extensive and exciting dirt track through the forest. Our guide, Chad, was a pro at educating us about the dogs, sled racing culture, and Alaska life. This tour is highly recommended.

Both my wife and I had no idea of what this would be. We are both dog and animal lovers. We were picked up in town on time and driven out to their training facilities. We were given some history and what we were going to do. Both my wife and I were excited to get to the dogs. We were taken out to where the dog live and got to pet as many as we wanted and then get on the sled, my wife drove the 1st half and yelled and laughed the whole time. I could not believe 4 dogs could pull us as fast and easy. When we got to the half way we got off the sled our guide gave water to the dogs and explained the working of a real sled. I had no idea there was so much the musher had to do during a race. Then after the dogs rested ( it was hot) I got to drive. Wow I had so much fun the dog can fly. I want to tell you this is the best tour I had. Yes all of the sight see in fine, but I got to play with the dogs. Really play with them. They are very well taken care of. They petted and love the dogs and the dogs show it. I talked to others that took others dog tours they didn't do half of what we did. If you want to drive your own dog sled them this is the only and best one to take. Ken and Gail Bishop
