  • What an amazing opportunity. To learn from a veteran of the Iditarod as well as the only woman to finish the Iditarod and climb, Mount Everest. In addition to learning from them you get to meet the puppies, this is important since sled dogs will be meeting, be cared for and even be treated for injuries by strangers, so meeting so many strangers from day one makes them less stressed later. Next you get to go on a training run. You ride an ATV behind the dogs. After all it's 60° out much to warm to pull a sled but running together is something they love to do, and when it gets too warm there is always mud to play in.
  • Very interesting with detailed explanations of running the Iditarod. Cindy Abbott showed us her sled & all the paraphernalia the mushers need for the trail. There were lots of opportunities to ask questions & take pics. Went for a ride on an ATV hooked up to a team of sled dogs. Was able to walk among the dog houses & pet the dogs. And of course cuddle a litter of pups. It was very evident that they love & take great care of their dogs. We really enjoyed our visit & I will take future guests back to their kennel.
