Seward Kennel Tour & Dog Sled Ride

5 reviews

Excursion Overview

Alaska's favorite sport

Meet professional mushers and canine athletes at Seward Kennel dog camp. Watch firsthand as your dog team takes a series of commands that will leave you spellbound.

This kennel tour showcases the high level of training that goes into cultivating a team. Enjoy a fun, zippy ride on our dog cart where you will see the dogs listen to the command and navigate the camp trail. Learn what "Gee" and "Haw" mean and enjoy a presentation on dog mushing.

The best part of the tour is the dog sled ride! Prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind experience. No prior mushing experience is needed. Learn all about how we train and prepare our dogs for races, hear exciting tales from the trail, and experience Alaska's state sport for yourself. The team of dogs will guide you through the 1.5-mile-long wood trail.

We keep the tour size small, so you will have plenty of time to ask questions, meet the dogs, and snuggle our husky puppies. This hands-on tour is a must to do for Alaskan visitors!
