Following Pesky Husky's closure I have tried to contact them multiple times regarding the refund of some gift vouchers. Having followed the instructions on the website I have heard nothing and all calls have been directed to voicemail. Has anyone had the same issue?

At least the weather was good. The rest of the day consisted of us being told off by a very ittitating and rude woman, not being able to do what we paid for and not receiving a refund for what we weren’t able to do

I don't believe this is a genuine review there is absolutely no detail to it, the fact that it says " the rest of the day" when that length of time is not appropriate , makes it very suspicious

Deb was very friendly and gives each guest an introduction to all of her huskies during the "kennel visit" portion of the visit. She also explains what goes into taking care of the dogs, and how labor-intensive it can be. Not surprisingly, most of her...More

Words fail me on this one, not even worth repying to, it takes all sorts, trouble is some people just try to be a bit too clever given a key board to tap away on !!

What a unique experience. The huskies are so beautiful and well looked after, went for a hiking experience as I decided I was not fit enough for the trekking, despite slight drizzle, the countryside is beautiful. My Daughter came too for a kennel visit but...More

We spent a wonderful few hours with Debbie and her huskies and took a hike on her farm with two special dogs. We will definitely return as soon as possible.
