“Worth going if you time it right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Interesting to learn how the dogs are used in the winter. You can pet some of the dogs and they give a short talk and harness the dogs and take them around a path. No rides.

“Very informative and you get to visit with the dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This was a pleasant suprise. We didn't know this existed until we saw it in the visitor center. Its a short ride on a park bus to the demonstration. The Rangers do a great job of informing you about the dogs and their use, care, etc. They do a short demonstration and then provide time for questions. Afterwards you can get your picture on the dog sled and visit with some of the dogs in the yard. An excellent presentation.

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The sled dog demo is free at 10,2 and 4pm daily. You will learn about history of team and see one in action. Plenty of time to interact with dogs and trainers. Free bus from visitors center or walk a 2 mile trail.
