Just had the most wonderful experience at Turning Heads Kennel. Travis was the ultimate host. We had so much fun and learned a lot, too. A definite if you're in the Seward area. Small, intimate, hands-on experience.

Our B&B hosts advised us that this was the best sledding kennel tour in Seward. They said that you got to spend time with experienced mushers and have lots of interaction with the sled dogs. They were so right. Sarah was our hostess at Turning Heads. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about the dogs and sledding. She spent a... More

We had a great visit to Turning Heads Kennel in Seward. After being greeted by "Archie", one of the "retired" racing dogs in the yard, we got to meet Sarah and interact with all of the dogs in the kennel. Our family group of 12 were the only ones there at the time, thus allowing a lot of time with... More

They also do helicopter trips out of Seward airport up to Godwin Glacier where you do a sled dog ride on the glacier. I took it yesterday (6/23/14) and it was absolutely stupendous! See my review for this listed under Seward Helicopter Tours.

This was a great experience! I took my two daughters-ages 22 and 18- they were less than excited at first, but when we saw the puppies and got to hold they-they warmed up to the idea. The ride on the sled was fantastic and we all had a great time. It was an experience we will never forget! Travis was... More

Meet Travis Beals a professional Iditarod musher. Travis leads the tour, let's you interact with the dogs and takes you on a cart pulled by the dogs. We saw an eagle fly from the nest at the kennel. Outstanding!

Unbelievable experience! The owners treat you like one of their own and guide you through the excitement of the sport and the "cuteness" of the dogs. I highly recommend this activity!

This was a refreshing change to the normal 'tourist attractions' in Seward. If you love dogs, you must experience this! Riding in the 'wheeled sled' was amazing. It shows you the strength and enthusiasm of the dogs. Sarah and Travis are amazing hosts with as much determination as the dogs. (visit Resurrection Roadhouse nearby for good food and beer)

Turning Heads train and run over 50 sled dog in competitions. The dogs are socialized to people as well as trained to race, unlike other trainers who restrict training to racing and keep many of their main dogs from visitors. Travis & Sara, the owners, generously share their knowledge about training dogs, open the kennels to visitors, and allow time... More

We visited Turning Heads Kennel in July 2013. We got a tour of the facility, meet the dogs, and meet the owners, Sarah and Travis. The owners truly love what they do. We saw how the dogs are cared for both at home and on the trails. We were given an exciting ride thru the woods on a cart pulled... More
