... owners had a family emergency and had to head off to Anchorage. As we hadn't received any notification of this, I called one of the owners who said we would receive a refund. Hmmm. Feeling a bit disheartened, Ted suggested we try a similar business he'd seen further down the road.
We managed to get a tour with the other company and joined a group of about 12 others. We learned about the sled dogs themselves, as well as the training they go through, their diet, how they ...
