Mushing with Iditarod dogs in Alaska

Updated: Mar 9, 2019


Dog sledding is not only an Alaskan tradition, but also a state obsession, one that's celebrated every March with the running of the 1,150-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome. Taking a dogsledding excursion is a chance to see what the fuss is all about.


A lot of people see the dogs pulling the sled but you don't see how excited they are to be chosen to run. They are the sweetest loving energetic dogs that I have ever met. You have to take a ride or watch my video to see how much they truly love to mush.


I went to former Iditarod winner Dallas Seavey's kennel to mush with some of his dogs and had a blast. I would highly recommend dog mushing if you come to Alaska.
