A Denali Destination…Where Dogs are King!

Enjoy a warm welcome and experience a true Alaskan lifestyle at Husky Homestead, home of four-time Iditarod Champion Jeff King.

Be greeted by cuddly puppies and share an intimate view of the Alaskan Husky as they explode from the kennel on a training run. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a championship team and carving a life in Alaska’s Interior. Hear compelling stories from the trail and see actual racing sleds, arctic survival gear and equipment used to traverse 1100 miles of Alaska’s most rugged terrain.

  • Cuddle with our puppies
  • View summer training in action
  • Discover and appreciate an authentic Alaskan lifestyle
