A definite 'MUST DO' -- the dogs are simply awesome and friendly. You can actually pet them -- it was a great demonstration. There was a squirrel in the tree and several huskies had their heads pointed upward -- watching every movement the squirrel made. Very funny. Definitely recommend this demonstration.

Simply- THE BEST-Do not miss the opportunity to visit "Husky Homestead". Jeff King and his dogs are NOT to be missed--you will leave with a whole new appreciation for dog sledding.

We almost missed this. It is a free demonstration of how the dogs are used in the Park. Interesting for all. The dogs loved the attention. Take the time to look at all the pictures to learn more about their history.

We arrived a little early and were able to walk around looking at all of the dogs and seeing the new puppy that... More

Our Denali bus took us into the park 92 miles and ended at the Kantishna Lodge. We met a guy named Emmet Peters, Jr. who gave us a short talk about dog sledding, the Iditarod and his father who won one year. This guy was hilarious! Later, we were able to meet the dogs and he gave a short demonstration... More

I loved the sled dog demonstration. The rangers seem to really care about the dogs and were very informative. These dogs obviously love their job. The puppy was very cute as well. We took the shuttle bus out to the sled dog demo area but hiked Roadside Trail back to the visitors center. We were done by lunch with plenty... More
