Owner description: Situated between Scarborough and Whitby in the North York Moors National Park, Pesky Husky is a unique experience for any visitor. A family-run business with over 30 years of experience of the breed, Pesky Husky was set up in 2007, when our aims were to provide a centre where people could learn about the amazing qualities of the oldest breed on the planet, and how they are simply like no other dog. We also aim to provide a loving home for our dogs throughout their whole lives (having rescued about a third of our pack from unsuitable homes), by giving them the opportunity to do what Huskies are supposed to do- run! With 30 sled dogs for you to meet, we provide a range of exciting experiences, including Husky Trekking; a sport which gives you the opportunity to drive your own team of dogs on a two wheeled scooter around our purpose built trekking course, with its two exciting down-hills. For those who want a more relaxed session we can tailor your session to suit your individual abilities.Pesky Husky also offers Husky Hiking all year round; a walk with the dogs through the open countryside, using specialist belts and equipment specifically designed for sled dogs. A fun and unique activity, this is perfect for families with children, walking groups, or anyone who wants to meet and spend some quality time with these amazing animals! We also offer combined sessions of Trekking and hiking for the complete Husky experience.These activities all include a full kennel visit, instruction, and equipment, and are available all year round, 7 days a week. We also do various other activities- from children’s parties to kennel visits, meaning there really is something for everybody! Prices start at £15 and we can provide gift vouchers as well as bookings. Please ring for availability and details.

“What a brilliant time we had!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I went with my husband and daughters ages 9 and 11. It was fantastic!!! Debbie is so knowledgeable and caring of her dogs and they are clearly well loved and cared for. Everyone of us loved the experience despite different levels of ability (Debbie rode with one of my daughters who was nervous). We all loved the day and enjoyed just relaxing with the dogs afterwards. Debbie couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome, she is also very funny which calmed any nerves.....don't hesitate just book it, well worth the money, we can't wait to go back, thanks Debbie!

“Brilliant Unusual Experience”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

A brilliant different experience. Debbie and Taz were fantastic, enthusiastic and funny as well as very supportive.Its hard work but very rewarding and the dogs are just amazing. Both our boys loved it despite being initially nervous and judging by the smiles on their faces they would happily do it again. Seeing the dogs in the kennels was also great they are so gentle and have such big personalities. Overall it was a great morning and if you are dubious, trust me, do it you will enjoy it!

“Dog Lovers Heaven”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Sunday 9th March '14. A morning to remember ! Thanks to Debbie & her team of wonderful Husky's we gave our two older grandchildren a morning of fun & laughter. They enjoyed the challenge of scooting along with the Husky's pulling them around the course.
The visit to the kennels was very enlightening and a lovely experience meeting all the friendly Husky's. Not a growl or bark only friendly affectionate dogs with a real zest for life and work.
Debbie's extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for her dogs and business was very refreshing. To listen to.
If you like to do something different give this a try. You won't regret it.
Make sure you wear sensible footwear. Have fun.

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

What a great experience. Both the owners & the dogs are very enthusiastic which just meant the time we spent there was exceptional. We did the three experiences starting with the track. I could believe how quick the dogs were & how keen they were to race round. We then went on the trek & Sirius who was determined that we should be at the front & that we were not going to be going slowly. Finishing with the kennel visit allowed us the meet all the dogs & learn a bit more about them. An experience I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

“Amazing Day Out!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

The owner clearly loves her huskies to bits and is incredibly knowledgeable.The huskies themselves are beautiful, affectionate and obviously love what they do. We got to meet all 31 dogs and then went out on a hike with Biscuit and AK. Sadly the trek circuit was too waterlogged for us to go round but we're going back for that in May. Amazing experience and can't wait to go back and see how big the gorgeous pup Bolt has got and to meet the new pups. Thank you for a brilliant morning.
