Overview

Enjoy a warm welcome and experience a true Alaskan lifestyle at Husky Homestead—home of Iditarod Champion, Jeff King. Husky Homestead 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, Alaska with a champion Iditarod team. Cuddle puppies upon arrival and share an intimate view of the Alaskan Husky as the team explodes from the dog yard and witness their beauty in motion as they run on our treadmill before hitting the trail for a training run. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a championship team and carving a life in Alaska's Interior. Hear compelling stories from the trail and see actual racing sleds, arctic survival gear and equipment used to traverse 1100 miles of Alaska's most rugged terrain. Dress in extra layers, wear comfortable shoes, bring bug repellent - and your camera! Our 2018 season runs from May 9th - September 14th.

This was an interesting location. It's clean, at least as clean as a working dog training center gets. The presentation was entertaining and thorough. There's time to interact with the puppies too.

I loved this excursion. The presentations were captivating and the puppies were adorable. It got so loud from the dogs barking “pick me, pick me” when they were selecting the dogs to do the mushing demonstration. Once the dogs were picked and hooked up to...More

Great time with the visit to see the Huskies. Pick up from the hotel was on time and a short ride to the home of the Huskies. Very informative and the puppies steal the show.
