  • Love, love the Husky Homestead. My second time here. Very knowledgeable and entertaining staff. The dogs are magnificent and well cared for. And, loved. Everyone visiting Denali needs to visit the Husky Homestead!
  • This place was a highlight of my time in Denali. My daughter, who loves dogs was just over the moon with holding the puppies and watching the dogs in action and then hearing from Jeff King about his life and times on the sled dog trail made it a complete experience that was both fun and educational. Definitely make this a destination when you are in Denali.
