This started out as a very basic husky dog tour about mushing, raising the dogs, etc. However, it quickly turned into a much more informative session and Q&A session with Jeff King himself. We loved his personality, ability to make it interesting for the young...More

The Husky Homestead tour was highly recommended to us. It did not disappoint. The demonstrations and talks were so entertaining and educational and our grandchildren especially enjoyed holding the puppies. This was one of our best excursions of our entire trip. Easy to book independently.
