Had an awesome time interacting with Alaskan Huskies at the Summer Dogsledding Camp. The dogs are very friendly and love to run. Our musher and dog team took us on a short but exciting run. We then got a chance to cuddle with the puppies. This is an important part of their upbringing and training as it teaches them to interact positively with people.

I learned so much about dog sledding and sled dogs! What a cool experience to be able to watch the strength and control these dogs have be put to the test! The track winds through the Tongass rainforest and yeah it’s not the normal snow playground you would think of, but it’s still beautiful and still an impressive team(s) of sled dogs... plus there’s puppies <3 I had a wonderful time and I enjoyed learning and being a part of the sled dog team for an afternoon. I hope to go back some day soon!

Have you ever wondered how the dogs train for the Iditarod? In the offseason they have their "Spring Training." The dogs love to train and they live for it. The tour is wonderful and you have a chance to be pulled by a group of dogs and their Human Sled Leader/Coach. The Coach gave us all a good idea of the "Iditarod" experience. The first turn by the dog camp is something to behold. You can see the dogs in their houses and their NAMES. My favorite was Michael Phelps. The dogs bark and yelp and you can see they are jealous not to be included in that tour. They all have their chance and it's a great way for the Sled Team to raise funds to the big race in the Winter. A MUST SEE.

Although this was good experience and staff friendly, helpful and informative I personally thought it a little expensive, I pre booked some months before our holiday and maybe would have been better doing on day probably better price to reflect experience. My dog loving friend throughly enjoyed petting and cuddling the puppies.

This was an excursion we choose to do while on the Disney Wonder. It was exactly as described in the literature. The dog sledding adventure is on dry land. The dogs pull sleds on wheels since there is no snow on the ground in early September. The tour bus was greeted with 140 dogs yipping, barking and howling. The group was divided so that 4-6 people are assigned to a sled. Our group did a ride around the property and it was like riding a roller coaster as you fly over hills and take some sharp turns. After the ride, the group met the team. Some of the dogs wanted to meet you and others were not socialized so you were advised to not to try to pet the dogs. We then headed to a small pavilion to learn about dog racing, the equipment, where the dogs go during the winter months, the diet, the ages, the gender of the dog teams, etc. The cherry on top of this excursion was playing with the puppies. My entire family was in love.
