Truly Unique Experience
Gavin, Nov 2022
Maria was an amazing host, and her dogs were great fun. It was truly a unique experience to meet 18 dogs at the same time. Lots of kisses and cuddles. We had a blast petting and playing with her pups and their personalities were truly on display. It's also very clear that Maria and her husband are true husky and sledding fanatics and treat their dogs as if they were their children. It was a great hour with the pups.

Best excursion ever

Gunni and Maria could not be nice and the dogs were super fun. Their house is close to the Cruise Port, but far enough to see the country side.
