  • What a great morning out, beautiful huskies, beautiful scenery and Debbie the owner, an enthusiastic funny character. Would recommend to anyone reasonably fit with a sense of humour.
  • I do not recommend the Trekking event. We were disappointed by the "kennel tour". The owner is extraordinarily abrupt and will not give you any encouragement if you hesitate only even a second; or give any sympathy if you have injured yourself. You'll be denied your one chance to go round the circuit with the dogs if you look ever so slightly wobbly on your only practice run with the scooter. The dogs may be lovely in nature and good looking, but they don't pull much, and may be more interested by smells at the side of the track....
  • This experience was not at all as expected and I would not recommend it to anyone. Debbie had extremely poor manners and did not make it a good experience. As someone who has dogs and is knowledgeable and experienced, during the kennel tour, I felt as though I was being lectured about how terrible 'British' people were at caring for dogs. I felt if she had attempted to speak to people as if they were adults and not idiots the experience would have been somewhat enjoyable. Despite paying £35 for trekking, I did not end up doing the trekking, despite successfully passing all the safety checks. This was because I felt extremely disappointed by the way she was speaking to me and the way she was addressing the whole group. I also felt it was far too hot for the dogs and not fair. I had hoped/expected that I may be able to get a refund or a partial refund because I didn't actually do the trekking, but this did not happen. Also, despite being constantly reminded of all the risks involved with trekking there was no evidence of a first aid kit on site, or any protocol discussed if somebody was to hurt themselves. The farm itself appeared very dirty as if someone had been fly-tipping. The kennels did not appear clean, or somewhere I would be happy to leave my own dog. You were not allowed to take photos in the kennels even without flash, and I am not suprised! A final minor detail was that the 'experience' was advertised as having a complementary lunch provided and some of the sandwiches provided were out-of-date. I was hoping to have come away from this having had a good experience but the whole group was disappointed. I feel if you fail to provide the advertised experience for your customers you should, at the very minimum, offer them a partial refund. My advice is to avoid like the plague! Or only agree to go if you can pay after the experience, if you have actually been able to enjoy the experience! Do not pay in advance.
  • 30 lovely and friendly huskys living on a farm in the north york moors. We booked husky trekking and hiking and spent a good 2 and a half hours doing this. The trekking was great! And a little scary. Its quite physically demanding and you need to good balance to be able to ride the scooters while the dogs are pulling them. You get a helmet and knee pads just incase you do eat dirt. The hiking is much more relaxed. 6 of us went out on a long walk with one husky each attached to us. The dogs are well trained and just walk along of you. The owner of the huskies is super passionate and loves her dogs. She is friendly and funny and straight to the point. I admire what she is doing. She is really helping to give these dogs a better life.
  • Bought for husband Christmas present. He had a go and enjoyed it. I was scared right out of it by the owner who is a little abrupt. I felt sorry for a couple there on their wedding anniversary, she wasn't allowed to have a go as she "looked too scared". A lot to pay (£25 each) for one lap of a track and especially if you were told you couldn't take part. Dogs were lovely though.
