Ohhhh Mindy! You’ve been ‘bitten’ by the Sleddog bug. It’s contagious! It happened to me about 25 years ago and now I can’t see ever being without them. Sleddogs are by far the sweetest, coolest, most honest & hardworking being in the world. We can...More

It's great to experience a dog mushing in summer. I said hello to every Husky and most of them gave me a big hug! It’s amazing for a Husky lover. Also you could learn a lot about dog mushing. Expecting another visit in winter!
