“good to see those dogs but not interested in demonstration”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I will drive my own car if I have other chance to go there. I do not think this is a sled dog demonstration instead of long time talking. Sorry not for me.

“Good demonstration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We enjoyed seeing all the sled dogs and being able to pet them and see them at work. Great demo of how they are attached to the sled and pull it. Ranger gave interesting talk about the dogs.

“A must do in Denali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

One of the things my wife and I did was the sled dog demonstration at the ranger station. Being dog lovers and very interested in the history of the park this did not disappoint. One of the coolest things we saw/did outside of the hiking/sightseeing. This was nice to do since we had our own vehicle up there and didn't have to rely on shuttle/bus schedules.

These Dogs are amazing Athletes!! Given proper care they can do the 1,049-mile Iditarod and other Great Alaska Races. They are truly loyal and are "Man's Best Friend!!

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Don't know if there is more than one place within the Park where demos are given, but the one we saw was in Kantishna at the far end of the long drive. Everett, who is a native, was the presenter and he is perfect at his job. He is interesting, has a good sense of humor, and covers much more than just training the dogs - and is then willing to answer questions. Next, we walked a short distance to the Happy Trails Kennel where we got to pet the dogs who are wonderfully socialized. This kennel was very well maintained. Everett explained why each dog was placed where he/she was and their individual roles in pulling the sled. Since this was a training area without snow the "sled" was a six-wheeled motorized cart - but we got the idea.
