This was our son's favorite excursion on our recent cruise-land tour of Alaska. After reading the negative reviews, we were concerned, but we quickly discovered that those negative reviews were unjust. The owners were friendly but real; let's face it, they've chosen to live in a remote area of Alaska, so they aren't gushing with fake customer-service. The dogs were quiet when we arrived but as soon as we exited the van and approached the ATV, they were giddy with anticipation. These are powerful sled dogs, so transporting them to the ATV amongst the other chained dogs is a bit different from walking an accessory dog through Central Park. They are walked on their hind legs to maintain control & keep them from pulling, but they were yipping in excitement! The dogs knew the route well, and while the vehicle we were in was motorized, those dogs were definitely keeping the line taut as they charged ahead. (Think of Cesar Milan exercising his dogs on skates; his wheels are doing a good portion of the work but the dogs are simultaneously getting good exercise.)
We enjoyed Jerry's discussion of the race itself. Unfortunately for us, there were no puppies yet but we got to spend time with our pulling team after the ride. Spot, in particular, gave and received lots of love. Luckily for us, our package included lunch and it was without a doubt one of the best meals of the trip! My husband had the halibut burger, our son had the shrimp rice bowl, I had the homemade hummus platter and every bite was delicious. We highly recommend both the tour and the meal.
