Friendly people, friendly place, all around a VERY good time! We arrived late but they still were accommodating and they let us play with the dogs at the end!

Don’t except real huskies
Dusica_I

Dogsledding is very romantic and calming tour, you will love it! The only thing I object is that I expected the real huskies! I love all dogs, no matter what breed they are, but since i am in Alaska and pay for what they offer (on viator on that picture there is no black dogs) I literally expected some huskies, or dogs similar to them.

We use 100% Alaskan Huskies for all of our dogsledding adventures. Alaskan Huskies have a huge variety of color.

Our Musher, Vicky, was...
David_D
, Mar 2021
Our Musher, Vicky, was awesome! Very friendly, informative, and gracious. Enjoyed the time with the team, mid-trek. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing about them and what it’s like to go long distances with them. Only issue was the amount charged for 30 mins trip. Maybe just not aware of annual costs of keeping a team of 9/10 working dogs, gear and all?
icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
Our Alaskan Huskies are fed like athletes with a high protein diet, that includes beef, chicken and fish. It takes a kennel of 22+ Alaskan Huskies to have a working team of 10 dogs for a 5 day work week. Our athletes are allotted lots of rest to ensure great health. Thank you for the review.

Excelent, a must do in Alaska
Kevin_m
, Mar 2021
Excelent activity, the dogs was very friendly and the trip was incredible, my guide (I don’t remember her name, sorry) was very good guide and explain me a lot about the dogs sledding, is an activity that I consider that you must do if you visit Alaska.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
At Rod's Alaskan Guide Service or dogsledding is more than a ride. We love to talk about or 4-legged friends and answer any questions or guests have about living in Alaska and the quirks of owning Alaskan Huskies. Thank you for the review.

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience and Highly recommend. Dogs appeared well cared for and were fun to pet!

Our 4 legged friends are a part of the family. They love all of the hugs and pets from our wonderful guests. Don't forget your camera--our pups love their picture taken. The pups do often sneak a quick kiss while you're down smiling for a picture. Thank you or the review.
