This was so fun! Can't say enough good things! Purchased the 2 person Groupon for husband and me, and 1 person for son. He brought a friend, who used a 1 person Groupon, so everyone got a great value. The boys loved interacting with the dogs, who were so sweet and affectionate. Just a great day trip for dog-lovers, unique and memorable.

So fun! A dog-lover's adventure. Marla is an enthusiastic, cheerful, and knowledgeable guide for this unique activity. The dogs are friendly, affectionate, and happy -- clearly well-cared for and loving their "jobs" as sled dogs. Ample time is given to visitors to visit with each dog individually, as well as participate fully, helping with gearing the dogs up and down before & after the cart ride.
