“Great place to really understand Huskies and living in rural Alaska”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

I am the geologist / educator / tour leader and owner of Earth View LLC. We do an Alaska tour about every three years and have had the great pleasure of visiting Wolf Den Kennel for our past two tours. Mike and Caitland Santos and their staff put on an impressive program. Besides having puppies to hold and pet (and be photographed with) the Santos' presented a lot of interesting information about dogs, the Iditerod, and living in Alaska. Their story is especially interesting since they can compare their New England upbringing to their Alaska home.
The quality of the presentation is excellent. The presenters, Caitlin and Mike, speak clearly and present the program using a variety of media effectively. There are video segments that seemlessly fit into Caitlan's narrative. For example, Mike has the dogteam out on a practce run. We see the exciting process of the setup and takeoff as the team pulls the ATV into the "bush". Then as Caitlin is talking, she shows a short video showing what Mike is doing on the trail, and he explains further. Very effective.
In conclusion, my tour group of 15 was impressed and talked about this experience a lot. They really appreciated the information and the abilities of Mike and Caitlin to engagingly share their life and experiences with dogs (and a new family) in Alaska.
