    sleighing is what he was trying to say but yeah sledding is accurate too.

    Anyway I've never been but you might do a google search for "Alaskan highway dog sleighing or sledding". The alaskan highway is absolutely beautiful, well worth the drive. I'm very certain that you'll be able to find a few places along it. To get the most out of driving the highway, you'll want a copy of "the milepost" & maybe a geology book on it if you can find one.

    However, you might want to take a gun (12 gauge with slugs or .340) in case you bump into a bear. When I went up there with my family we almost had to break out the weapon. A RV had stopped in the road and was taking photo's of a black bear that was sniffing in their wheel wells. A passenger started to get out to take a photo, but the bear turned around when he opened his door to get out. The bear then climbed up the front windshield before it tore off a windshield wiper & slid off. They finally decided they had had enough and managed to drive off at that point so we didn't have to kill anything or nominate some folks for the Darwins.

    I fixed your title, maybe it'll help you get more serious replies - although I think you would be better off asking on a more suitable forum.

    I've done it, only a short 3 day trip though. I did it in Quebec, can't remember the name of the place though. Warm clothes are a given.
    As the driver: The dogs do and will listen to you! Be assertive though, when these things start pulling they really don't want to stop! Mash on the brakes are hard as you have to. Eye goggles highly recommended.
    As the passenger: Relax! Be careful of flying dog poop, it happens.

    All in all, really fun. If you love dogs, you will absolutely love it. By the time I left I had all their names memorized. Would definitely do it again.

    I had a lot of fun dog sledding at Algonquin Park a few years back. Albeit, falling off the sled due to ice wasn't cool 'cuz I have to chase the dogs every few minutes 'cuz it was just that slippery.

    There's no dog sledding until late November to late January as that's usually snow season.
