A Denali Destination
Each summer we share the world’s finest sled dogs and puppies with visitors world wide at our location in Denali Park, Alaska.
Training sled dogs is a year-round affair for four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King. He is is recognized as the “Winningest Musher in the World.” His victories include not only the 1,049 mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race in 1993, 1996, 1998, and 2006, but also over two dozen first place finishes in races all across Alaska.
EXPLORE AND LEARN
This tour is widely heralded as an authentic look into rural lifestyles based on 40 years of Alaskan adventures: from freight hauling on Denali to crossing the finish line in Nome.
Just want to add my kudos to all the great reviews this place already has. It is obvious that everyone who works there loves the dogs and what they are doing. The presentation was really interesting and informative. Handing around puppies for everyone to hold was great fun. I bought Jeff King's autographed book and have been enjoying reading about all his experiences. A great way to spend a couple of hours having fun and learning something. - TripAdvisor Member, Adlr99, from South Florida
Fantastic, Fun and Smiles
The puppies brought smiles and the presentation (by Alex) was engaging, informative and funny!! The love the entire staff has for the dogs and their well-being is evident. My teens and I LOVED it. - Nancy S. from Boston, Massachusetts
We were thrilled with the whole visit to Husky Homestead! Of course, the puppies were a huge treat, however, they didn't overshadow the rest! The presentations were informative, interesting and funny! Alex was particularly impressive! I'm ready to go again! - Penny H. from Fairbanks, Alaska
Even More than Playing with Puppies
Playing with the puppies is actually a part of the puppies' training by getting them socialized - ok, it's just plain fun! But the explanation of the training and first hand accounts of running the Iditarod (by 4 time winner, Jeff King) was incredibly informative. Jeff has a funny and engaging presentation where he shows his respect for all of the participants and volunteers in the race. We learn so much about the sport of mushing. It is clear that he loves the dogs and feels that the dogs are the true stars! - A TripAdvisor Member, reviewed 9/3/17
We visited The Husky Homestead and found it wonderful! The dogs were so sweet and well loved, happy and cared for. PLUS we got to hold the puppies-so sweet! You could really see the dogs' excitement and love of running. The mushing athletes who also were our presenters did a GREAT job of explaining everything in a thorough and entertaining way. We also met Jeff King himself and were able to ask lots of questions. I would highly recommend this visit. - TripAdvisor member, Cultech, from Mineral Bluff, Georgia
Excellent tour. We learned about the puppies, sled dogs, sleds, diets of the dogs, and the process of the races. It truly felt that they valued and were passionate about their jobs, dogs, and social awareness. I would recommend this! - Review by Stemple12 from New Jersey
A pleasant surprise
Did not know what we were getting ourselves into. However, this ended up being one of the highlights of our time in Alaska! The dogs are awesome! However, there is so much more that we were introduced to that we had no idea about! Jeff King's team does a great job! He gained 9 fans from our group! - Jason B. from Fayetteville
