As with all professions, becoming a full-fledged sled dog takes lots of training. The puppies from Tromsø Villmarkssenter start from an early age with socializing. Puppies in the range of four weeks to eight months old are ready to explore the nearby terrain with you. Out in nature, they will be given various challenges that will help prepare them for sled dog life. Reward their good behavior with treats and cuddles. The tour starts directly at Tromsø Villmarkssenter. You will therefore need your own means of transport to get there. If you drive the guest parking lot is the second on the right and it's just a short walk up to the entrance from there. The guide will be ready to greet you and check if you need to rent any rainwear for the tour. Before meeting the puppies, you will get to meet their role models, the adult Alaskan huskies, in the dog yard. After having learned about them it will be time to educate the puppies. After getting acquainted with the little ones you will go with them into the nearby area. The terrain around the center consists mostly of moor so be sure to wear appropriate clothing. The exercises depend on the age of the puppies and are always done by positive reinforcement. In total, the training session will last 1-1.5 hours. After training the puppies will need some rest. So, say goodbye and head back to Tromsø with your own transport. COVID-19 measures: If you have symptoms similar to the flu or the common cold, you should not take part in the tour.
