Doing our bit
They often adopt our huskies from shelters and families that can no longer care for them properly. They also serve as a foster home for huskies from time to time. They like to surround them with their kind and give them something fun to do while waiting on a loving and active forever home. Sounds amazing!.

Took the whole family here over Christmas break. We ran three sleds together for six of us, including two kiddos. It was a super experience - the dogs were very well cared for and happy to be out runnin', and we found things to be very well run. It was quite relaxing, definitely a great way to get outside and experience nature!

Booked a dog word ride online and when we showed up we were greeted and were on our way shortly! Would definitely recommend!
