Alaskan Dog Sledding:

IMG_3630IMG_3637

I’ve always loved speed (I race horses for crying out loud!) and I love animals, so dog sledding seemed like a great activity to invest some time in. It did not disappoint. We went sledding with Golden Heart Dog Tours and I would recommend them to anyone. Our tour guide had completed the Iditarod and two of the dogs we were riding with were ones she run with.

I didn’t know anything about dog sledding, so saying I learned a lot isn’t much of a statement, but the amount of care and skill used to run these animals is truly remarkable. Our guide fell in love with dog racing and left a lot behind to come do it. I can understand how it would be come an addiction. In fact, I could even see myself getting to that point.

It might seem like a bit of a tourist activity (and I’ll admit it is) but it was a hundred and ten percent worth it!
