Dog Mushing Camp in Juneau, Alaska

Tour Review – September 2012

The Iditarod Dog Mushing Camp, managed by Gold Rush Dog Sled Tours, is located in Sheep Creek Valley near Juneau, Alaska. This activity is promoted as a one and half hour tour and includes a dog cart ride down a gravel road. Getting to the camp is easy, as the tour bus picked us up at the cruise ship dock. Once we arrived at the camp, our group was led into a tent where we received an explanation about the dogs, the Iditarod, and living conditions. After a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie, we took the cart ride and then spent time with the puppies.

    • It was a fun tour, and I enjoyed seeing the dogs and how people lived (survived) in tents in the middle of winter. It’s cold in Alaska!

    • Thanks, the dogs and puppies are beautiful. The dogs that were tied up waiting to take a run barked endlessly. Their energy was astonishing, they love running and would do it nonstop if allowed.

  5. I soooooo wanted to do this when my mom and I were in Juneau but we opted for fly fishing instead, which was also very cool. Next time I’m doing the dog sledding!

    • I hope you return to Juneau and take the tour. It was great fun seeing the dogs.
