It was neat seeing the dogs

You cant really do authentic dog sled rides in the summer- without snow, so it was cool to be able to experience it somewhat, with the dogs pulling the ATV. It was neat to see how... read more

I took my daughter to this excursion - quite a bit of money for the experience I would say. I agree with all the reviews about the rude owners making you feel like they don't want you there and the owner told me that they do the tours to offset the cost of having the 75 dogs. While not mushing... More

The owners Kathleen and Jerry are sarcastic, bordering on rude. The information about the dogs and the race is interesting, but their attitude toward their visitors makes this experience not much fun. Example: their replies to questions make visitors feel stupid. They are condescending and seem like they are in this for the money, not for love of the sport... More

This was a weird experience, the dog mushing is really just dogs running in front of a jeep, some dogs were fighting. The kids liked holding the puppies at the end, but the tour at the Native Heritage Center in Anchorage is better.

It was very interesting to see a typical cabin and hear about the great dogsled race and the dogs didn't seem unhappy but I found the dogsled pulling ( with a car) rather disappointing and the conditions for the dogs not so happy.

There are a lot of sled dog places you can visit, but none as personal as Sundog Kennels. We learned all about the Iditorod race, but also got to go on a 5 mi 4-wheeler ride being pulled by sled dogs. It was great!!!

Very informative about the Iditarod sled dogs and race. Very well run place, clean and friendly. Couldn't help but laugh as the dogs barked it up to be hooked up for their turn to pull the ATV. Pretty exciting to be pulled around by the team and then followed up with a "class" on the makings of the race and... More

We learned a lot about the Iditarod and sled dogs. They have about 60 dogs, all barking and who want to be hooked up to pull the sled but once the team was chosen they all quieted down. Pretty amazing when you think about it--that they knew enough dogs had been picked. The dogs pulled the motor-assisted ATV with us... More

This wasn't the real sled dog experience we really wanted..(would have to have snow for that.) But the experience of a real Iditerod musher was outstanding. Watching the dogs and their interactions with the owners as they were hooked to the sled. While they were pulling and motor assisted sled due to the weight of our group. The way they... More

We just loved the dogs, their eagerness to run, their cleanliness. Sixty dogs live there and there is no smell and I saw no dog poop! You get into a jeep and it is helping the dogs of course. But they just love to run. It is a path through the woods and I loved the experience. Afterwards they let... More
