Visit the unforgettable Tutshi Sled Dog Camp
Dog mushing has been part of life in Alaska and Canada since its earliest days. Despite the great distances between some rural communities, traveling by dog team is often still the best way to get around. Today, dog teams are still used by rural residents who rely on teams to hunt and travel and because of its history and tradition dog mushing has become the state sport of Alaska!
