We enjoyed our recent visit to Husky Town. The dogs were charming and well taken care of. Randy took us to meet each of the dogs who were anxious to get their turn for cuddles. As husky owners who do recreational and very informal dog sledding and skijoring, we came away with lots of questions for Randy and he patiently... More

We enjoyed talking to Randy and meeting his dogs, but were disappointed that he is no longer summer running his dogs and he is not raising any more pups, since like every Alaskan tourist that is why we stopped in. His dogs are getting too old for the tourist runs. I appreciate that he cares about the dogs, themselves, enough... More

Randy & Kim own & manage this Kennel, and are able to convey & share their obvious passion for their work & love for their dogs. We were a group of 10, had booked in advance, and greatly enjoyed this experience. Very conveniently located en route to Denali from Anchorage. The owners gave us a very informative tour, patiently explaining... More

Let's face it, there are many sled dog experiences in Alaska, why choose this one? Well, this isn't a big commercial establishment, this is a guy and his wife who love their dogs, who love sledding and have a great time sharing their passion with their customers. Much more than just a sled ride, he talked to us about the... More

Huskytown is operated by Randy, a former Iditarod musher. He is very friendly and takes his time introducing you to his dogs, talking about life in Alaska and about his experiences as a musher. We did not feel rushed at all. Randy hooked up his team to a cart and took us for a fun ride. We enjoyed the experience... More

Decided to give this a try on our trip from Denali to Anchorage. When we got out of the car the dogs got real excited because they knew it was time to run. Randy explained the sport of dog sledding and what it took to train his dogs. His display of the gear he needed to participate in the Iditarod... More

I brought my husband and dog here to celebrate their shared birthday. I called Randy in advance and asked if my dog, an Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound/Pembroke Welsh Corgi who has never run with a team could run with his team for her birthday. He agreed to give it a try. . .and I'm so glad he did. We had a... More

Took my husband there for his birthday, and had an outstanding time with Randy and Kim who care for and breed these beautiful Iditarod sled dogs. You will get an inside look at what it takes to compete in Iditarod....and the sled ride is a lot of fun. Great dogs and great fun for all ages. Many thanks to Randy... More

We visited with Iditarod finisher Randy Cummins and had an exciting dog sled ride (the dogs also were in the Iditarod twice)! It was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend that you include this in your trip planning if you are going to Denali.
