DogGoneIt provides a bright spot in a visit to Denali, regardless of the weather. You will have the opportunity to meet the dogs, hold the puppies, and virtually experience the Iditarod race.  Your intimate visit will bring you to our home and includes an hour and a half narrated tour in which you will learn about sled dogs, the Iditarod sled dog race, and life in rural Alaska.  The tour emphasizes multimedia through which you can experience a virtual sled dog ride and the feeling of being on the Iditarod trail.  

Your visit begins as you spend time with our puppies.  Get a chance to hold a young sled dog puppy and see their puppy play area.  After you have had a chance for a snuggle and a photo, the more formal part of your visit begins. Watch as a team of enthusiastic sled dogs take off for a summer training run.  Learn about the breed as you watch a slideshow of photos and video and meet individual members of the team.  Next you will move indoors for a multi-media presentation allowing you to understand and experience the Iditarod Sled Dog Race and what motivates Mike Santos to participate. See video footage, photos, and equipment from the race and be entertained by stories of the successes and challenges we have encountered in our journey.  Experience winter on the trail through our video, sound, and light show.  Your visit concludes with a chance to ask questions, see more dog mushing equipment and souvenirs, and get one last view of the dogs and puppies.
