Watching and listening to the dogs is very entertaining. You can visit the kennels and pet some of the dogs. The presentation and explanation of handlers' and dogs' behavior is informative and interesting.

These dogs are amazing and their caretakers obviously know them and treat them well. You can pet most of the dogs (if they're in the mood) and see the new puppies as well as see a demonstration of some of the dogs pulling a sled. It's also FREE!

This was an excellent and FREE opportunity to meet and hear about sled dogs. The ranger giving the demo was very informative; it was really interesting hearing about the dogs. Of course, the highlight was when the rangers started running around gathering the dogs to attach to the sled, and ALL of the dogs started going crazy (since it was... More

We enjoyed the sled dog demonstration. These dogs and their trainers are amazing. Wonderful program the park is committed to. Very informative and was amazing to see the energy level of all the dogs when the sled comes out! Don't miss this demonstration arrive at the bus stop early.

We took the park shuttle for the 1st "show" of the day. There were many people in line already, and we were early. You can pet the dogs, and it was really neat to see them all relaxed UNTIL it became time to be put in the harnesses....they went absolutely ballistic with joy at that time. The puppies were adorable.

Got to see so many dogs and pet at least 5 or 6. The talk was wonderful too, and then they hooked the dogs up and they went very quickly on their trail.

We went for the 2 pm demo. If you want to take the shuttle, it leaves from the bus-stop near the visitor's center (follow the white-paint doggie paw prints) 40 minutes before, ie 1.20 pm. It was about a 10 minute ride to the kennels, so why 40 minutes before I wondered, then discovered it was time for us to... More

There were shuttle buses to the free demo three times a day from the visitor center. You can also drive there. There was half an hour to pet and meet most of the dogs. Then, the ranger talked about the history and the use of the sled dogs before they showed the demonstration. Very informative and fun.

Our main activity within Denali was the 8-hour round-trip bus to the Eielsen Visitor Center. However, before we got on the train to Anchorage the next day, we woke up early for a short hike on the Rock Creek Trail to the sled-dog kennels. We got there about 30 minutes before the free shuttle from the visitor's center arrived, which... More
