Our family thoroughly enjoyed the sled ride, presentation and puppies. Our guide was very patient and informative as we asked many questions. We were impressed with their knowledge and care of the dogs. I highly recommend a trip to Tagish Lake Kennel when you're in Skagway.

Playing and seeing the husky puppies were incredible! They were so friendly and cute, it was hard to walk away.

My family very much enjoyed our visit to the Tagish Lake Kennel. We were one of the very first to arrive on opening and the dogs and puppies were so excited to see us. Spent some time socializing with the puppies and dogs in the very large pen and also enjoyed a 1.5 mile cart ride on property. The dogs were totally in their element and I was glad to speak with our guide about the different varieties of sled dogs - they were not all Alaskan sled dogs, two were (I believe) a Wyoming breed which is slightly smaller and looks different in the face. After our ride we sat through the educational talk that my child loved - learned about the gear, the different races, care of the animals year-round, etc. One note our guide mentioned, which should have been obvious to me, is that all the proceeds from visitors goes directly toward the care of the dogs. As well, we were told that it's important the dogs socialize with people from a young age since this will better help the kennel determine if they will make a good sled dog based on human interactions and how they get along with the other dogs in the pen.

This was a fun stop for my group when we docked in Skagway on a cruise. The sled ride is very fun and Erin was very informative telling us about the dogs' training and the different equipment used for the sled racing events. The dogs are very friendly and well-behaved. The staff is great!

We were driving from Skagway to Carcross and stopped by here on a lark and were very glad we did. Tour was done mostly by Ed who had a lot of good Iditarod stories and even more information on how the dogs are raised, selected, and trained. The dogs are very well cared for and excited to see visitors and go out mushing. I also agree with a previous reviewer that you'll be lucky to get out of there without trying to adopt a puppy or two. I was also happy to see that some of the retired sled dogs were able to free range about the property and had a good home. Overall a great stop if you want to learn about the Iditarod and other races from people who've been doing it for decades (and who clearly love dogs).
