“Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

With two children in our group we had to take in the Sled Dog Demonstration in Denali National Park. Even though during the demonstration the skies opened to a deluge of rain, the rangers and their associates put on a very informative demonstration. Guests have the opportunity to walk among the kennels and right up to several of the dogs in open kennels.

“Awsome dogs and staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

You may not be able to see wildlife but these dogs are must see. They are true working dogs with their ranks and assignments. And it's free.

“Don't skip this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Love and care for the Alaskan Huskies shines in all the workers here. A separate bus will pick you up at the visitor center and take you to the site. You'll be able to walk around and see all the dogs. Then, a Park Ranger gives a wonderful talk about how the dogs help patrol the Park in the winter and how they are cared for. They are the happiest Federal employees in America-ha! Five dogs are selected to do a demo pulling a sled. It is amazing. You will be so glad you visited!

“Awesome creatures!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

So fun to meet the doggies and see them in action. Also the rangers all seemed to enjoy working with them. Really cool to learn how they still use the dog teams during the winter for hauling supplies and patrolling the park.

“Enjoyed it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Even though it was pouring rain, the presenter was enthusiastic and loved sharing her stories about these great dogs. It was an enjoyable experience. My kids loved the petting time with the dogs prior to and after the demonstration as well. Wish the demo could include just one more lap, but still really had fun!
