We have visited the Alaskan huskies center, they have explained to us the breeds of dogs, their food and exercise routine. We have seen all the dogs hanging out with them on the premises. Then we have helped feed the puppies and then we have taken them out to do various exercises in a nearby field, then with more adult puppies and finally they have prepared a hut with a very cozy bonfire and they have served us a very rich plate of cod with Coffee or tea, and a delicious chocolate dessert. Katherine and her partner have been very kind and attentive at all times, we send them a hug. Thanks

The team took a lot of time for the participants. All questions have always been answered extensively. Getting up close with the dogs was very nice. Atmospheric farewell with delicious food in the warm hut. I can only recommend it. Very family friendly.

we were unlucky with the weather (rain, wind, cold) and still had the best time. Perfectly organized, everybody involved very friendly, helpful and all in all interesting, pure fun and a very rare experience we totally recommend.

Very nice. Everything was explained to us very well by the guide from start to finish. The training is very fun and we had enough time to pet the dogs at the end.

I can only recommend this to anyone who only remotely likes dogs. Such a great experience with loving animals.
