“Awsome dogs and staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

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 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Loved it, dogs are great, terrific demo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

The rangers who train and take care of the dogs obviously love their jobs and it shows. The dogs are available for petting and photo ops. The demo of sledding was really great.
