This is a professional-family oriented activity. We learned about Alaskan huskies, their pups, their high protein meals and their training! The Seavey family has won the Iditarod off and on for several generations! The sled ride was fun and the musher informative on the ride! Good luck in this year’s race!

The Seavey Family opens up their world to all who visit and want to learn about their special breed of dogs and what it takes to compete and compete the Iditarod Race. The summer weather was perfect to get up close and personal to the mushers and their wonderful sled dogs. Time with the puppies was priceless. The pictures and memories that we took away will stick with us forever.
