How could I NOT be satisfied?? Loved having a chance to be hands on with the dogs. Loved having The Man take me out on the ride. Loved the experience!
Very exciting and very kindly. It's a good place to run and play. Thank you.
Hi, Wayne and his wife were really lovely and passionate about what they do
Everyone was super friendly accommodating. We got there early as the dogs were being fed. We helped attach the dogs to the sled line and helped put them away when we were done. We hung out a bit and took pictures with Lance Mackey; very nice and more then happy to meet us. Thank you. The two of us are thinking of coming back out and helping to hook up some more dogs and visit.

Owner here are warm and kind! all of those dog are active and did a good job！thank you for gave us a memorable journey here！
We have been Lance Mackey fans for YEARS, so being able to really meet him and his family in person, and experience the love he has for his dogs was awesome! It was the high point of our trip, for sure, and we will be back!
We had a wonderful visit with Lance and his wonderful dogs. We interacted with the dogs prior to our sled ride and I even got to help in harnessing one of the dogs. The area that the sled ride covered was just breathtaking and Lance is an extremely interesting person to chat with. Give it a big Aussie thumbs up :)
Everyone went out of their way to educate us and help us have a fantastic time. What's awesome about visiting the kennel is how down-to-earth and caring everyone is. Thanks especially to Jenne for helping us secure a ride and to Lance and the handlers for teaching us about mushing! It was a very enjoyable experience!
Loved the opportunity to interact with the dogs and Lance. What an amazing experience!
We Had A Great Time!!!! My Best Friend had a Bucket Wish List of dog sledding Lance Fullfilled the wish it was the highlight of Her Vacation. I will be taking other Family & Friends in the Future to enjoy the experience. Lance is a Character and enjoyed having a good chuckle over stories Highly Recomend Lance Mackey's Comeback Kennel Becky Williams
From the moment Jenne picked us up at our downtown Fairbanks hotel we knew we had chosen the best! She was warm and friendly and we had a most pleasant conversation on our way out to the kennels. When we arrived, Lance, along with his helpers, were finishing up preparations with other guests heading out on an overnight excursion. We got to watch the final preparations with their sled while the dogs barked and jumped with excitement in anticipation of leaving. While waiting, we were also able to visit and love up the puppies and also get acquainted with many of the other dogs, who were excited to be meeting new guests. Once our sled and dog team were ready, we were thrilled that Lance was to be our guide for a most enjoyable ride through the beautiful and pristine hills of Alaska. We got to take a lot of pictures, and Lance even took some for us. He taught us a lot about his dogs, he patiently answered all our questions and we learned more about him and his love of what he does. When our sled ride was over we got to unharness some of the dogs and spend time at the kennel petting the dogs and having more time to talk with Lance. In spite of the health issues he has battled, Lance is upbeat, optimistic and his can-do attitude and personality shines...he is a warm and friendly man and it is obvious that his dogs love him as much as he loves them. This was a first rate experience from start to finish!
Enjoyed the sled ride immensely! The dogs are super eager to be harnessed and lug us up the hill Good team of people, would highly recommend it to everyone Thank you for a great time on the snow!!! Carolynn & Tammy , Australia
We loved our dog sled ride! We felt like part of the Mackey family, putting dog booties on, and helping to harness the dogs. The ride was through a beautiful area of the Alaskan wilderness. Isbraham was a wonderful musher, and Lance spent time teaching us about the dogs and sport he loves. Thanks to Jennie too!
Lance was amazing!
Ibrahim was a most excellent guide. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.
Everything went very smoothly. Although part of our party had to go on separate trips due to unforeseen scheduling issues, the staff that waited with us were very friendly. It was great seeing Lance's trophies, hear about his achievements, and learning some of the ins and outs about dog sledding. I particularly appreciated the available fire and the puppy pen. In the future, it would be nice if staff encouraged visitors interacting with the dogs. All seemed friendly, but some of our group was intimidated I think. Thanks for a great experience!
Everyone was very welcoming and the whole experience was everything we expected and more. Lance greeted us and thanked us for coming. You can truly see that he loves his dogs and what he does. The staff did an excellent job also and made sure the adventure was one to remember. Thanks!!!
We spent a wonderful time in there. We will never forget the special experience!! Thank you so much :)

Great experience！Only want to have it longer！
Thank you Lance, This was a Christmas gift for my grandkids. They totally enjoyed it and will remember the dogs all their lives. Even my son and his wife were extremely pleased and surprised at how much fun they had. We got to see the dogs leashed and hooked up to the sleds and had the choice of riding in the sled or standing/running behind it. Andy really enjoyed being able to hop off and on. I think Stacy enjoyed being able to sit and watch the others. Again, a great time. Definitely worth the time and money. Sandi Jamison
The setup was great, and loved being with the dogs as for Lance I thought he was great and I felt very safe in his hands.
Awesome experience in AK! I would highly recommend my friends to Lance Mackey's Comeback Kennel!
Pick up is expensive, the tour is ok but does not last 1.5 hours.
Recommended for the tourist information centre. Great experience. 100% recommendable.
I had a wonderful wonderful time with those lovely doggies!!thank you thank you thank you!
Very friendly and professional staff. They let you play with the dogs and hang out at their property. You can tell people who work there love the dogs and are very experienced. I highly recommend going there.
Knowledgeable guide answered many questions, very well trained dogs, still running when other operators have closed down for the season, all-around fun time!
The out-of-town guest for whom I scheduled this tour had a fabulous time. She was enthralled with all the dogs, how friendly everybody with whom we came in contact was, and thoroughly enjoyed her 1.5 hour dogsled ride. In fact, had she had more time, she would have loved to schedule an additional 4-hour dogsled ride!
Phil was very friendly greeted our group as soon as we arrived. As we approached the dogs, he welcomed us to pet any/all of the dogs and quickly handed each of us a puppy to play with! Pato was just as welcoming and friendly, introducing himself to all of the group. The ride was amazing. Phil was so knowledgeable about mushing and the dog sled/Alaskan culture, very approachable which made asking questions an ease. My other friends rode with Pato, but said he was great as well. After the ride, Phil showed us even more puppies. We were so lucky to have experienced dog sledding as several other tours were cancelling due to warmer weather. It was definitely a highlight of our trip!
